GCSE Results – press release

‘Impressive Key Stage 4 results for Aylesbury High School students’

Congratulations to all Aylesbury High School students receiving their results today.
Headteacher Alan Rosen said, ”What really stands out are the breadth and depth of these results; students took 31 different qualifications including 2 AS Levels, the full range of arts and humanities subjects, and five languages.
With the changes to exam grades it is difficult to compare with previous years but I am very pleased that results in the reformed and tougher English and Maths GCSEs are even stronger than last year.
The average grade across all subjects was a high A (7.7 on the new system) and a fantastic 60% of students gained at least eight or more grades of A/7 or better.
Within the results there are many individual success stories to celebrate, reflecting two or more years of hard work and determination, and those students can now move onto the next stage of their education with confidence. GCSEs are not easy and I must mention and thank all the school staff whose dedication has been rewarded today, including those in primary schools who lay the foundations that we in secondary schools can build upon each year.
This year group has also been very active outside lessons, whether competing in National Finals in sport, performing in concerts, dance and drama productions, going on trips, exchanges and expeditions, and having a terrific success rate with the Duke of Edinburgh’s Award Scheme, so they are proof that there is much more to Key Stage 4 than exams at Aylesbury High School.
