“Through hard work and tenacity, and with the fantastic support and partnership with staff and parents, Northgate students have achieved excellent GCSE results this year. 70% of our students achieved Grade 9-4 in both English and Mathematics. 13% of our students achieved the highest Grade 9 in a wide range of subjects, awarded to only the top 3% of students nationally.
We are proud of all of our students and wish them every success for the future. Northgate is a school which caters for all, supports all, and maximises the potential of all.
As Head of School, I am extremely proud of the results at both A Level and GCSE, and of the teamwork with our hardworking and dedicated staff, which has secured such great outcomes with students”.
Andy Mason, Head of School
Students taking GCSEs in England this summer have received new number grades. GCSEs have been graded with a new scale from 9 to 1, with 9 being the highest grade (top 4% nationally).
A grade 4 in both English and Maths is now considered to be one of the main accountability measures in the academic outcomes of a school.
Results will be validated by the DfE to include remarks of exam papers in early January 2019. The results below reflect the current grades we are aware of and may increase by this time.
72% of pupils achieved 9-4 (‘pass’) in both English and Maths
46% of pupils achieved 9-5 (‘strong pass’) in both English and Maths
76% of pupils achieved 9-4 in Maths
81% of pupils achieved 9-4 in English
70% of all GCSE grades were grade 9 to 4
21 different pupils achieved a grade 9 across 15 different subjects
98% of pupils left with at least 8 GCSEs
45% of all Art and Design, Photography and Textiles grades were 9 to 7
