GCSE Results News
22nd August 2019
Cambourne Village College celebrated its second set of GCSE results this year.
Year-on-year improvements were secured in the key benchmark figures, with almost 71% of students achieving a 9-4 in both English and Maths – a 2% increase on last year’s figures. Almost 52% of students achieved a grade 5 or higher in both English and Maths – 6% higher than last year.
Almost a quarter of all students achieved five or more GCSEs with a grade 7 or higher, and seven students achieved 5 passes with the highest grade 9.
69% of all pupils achieved 5 or more GCSE passes including Maths and English at Level 4 or higher – this equates to the former ‘C’ grade - while 48% of all pupils achieved 5 or more passes at Level 5 or higher, including Maths and English – this is the Government’s new ‘Good Pass’ equating to a B grade in the former GCSE system.
23% of all pupils achieved 5 or more passes at Grade 7 (the former ‘A’ grade) while 7 pupils each achieved 5 of their passes at Grade 9, an outstanding achievement with these new and very hard GCSE specifications.
“Congratulations are due to all our pupils - and their teachers - who have all worked so hard to achieve these excellent results,” said Principal, Claire Coates. “We’re delighted that our pupils will be going on to their Post 16 courses with such strong results behind them, and we look forward to hearing about their continued future successes.”
