Very pleasing GCSE results for our 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 almost thirty different qualifications including the full range of arts and humanities subjects, and seven languages.

Within the results there are many individual success stories to celebrate which mean that our students can now move onto the next stage of their education with confidence. GCSEs are not easy and I must mention and thank all students for their hard work, and also 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.

The average grade overall was just above a grade 7 (equivalent to an old A grade) and 60% of our students gained eight or more grade 7s or better.

This year group has also been very active outside lessons, whether being National Champions 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 have gained much more than exam results during Key Stage 4 at Aylesbury High School.”
