I would like to take this opportunity to thank both parents and staff for their support of our students. Without this support our students would not be celebrating the best year 11 examination results for many years.
With over 100 A / A* grades being awarded, our students have clearly demonstrated that they can take advantage of the higher quality teaching now being consistently delivered here at St Peter’s to achieve the highest possible grades. Such achievement has only been possible due to the students themselves wanting to do well. The support of parents and St Peter’s staff has ensured that success has been achieved.
Students have shown their academic ability, especially in Physics, Biology and Chemistry at 100% A*-C and French at 78%. In these and other subjects students have achieved results that exceed the national average which is an immense result. English and Maths are also success stories with an increase of 10% and 12% respectively in the number of A*-C grades awarded. This has resulted in:-
- Students achieving a grade A*-C in English and Maths in 2016 is 55% up from 37% in 2015
Students have achieved greater progress in English and Maths this year compared to the national 2015 figures:-
- English - 77% of students made expected progress (a government measure) compared to the national 2015 average of 69%
- Maths - 72% compared to the national 2015 average of 66%
