Manningtree High School GCSE Results 2017

Our Manningtree students have risen to the challenge of the GCSEs, new and old. The proportion of students getting top grades has risen significantly this year. As last year, there was success in Maths with 14 students out of a year group of 146 gaining the coveted new Grade 9. Demonstrating that the talent was not concentrated in a few individuals, an incredible 91% of the students gained A*-C grades in at least 2 Science GCSEs and more than three quarters of the students taking GCSE RE gained an A or A*. The performance of the History candidates was also very impressive, with 39 out of the 87 students who took History getting A or A* - that’s 45% of the entries.

The introduction of the new GCSEs with their different grading system makes it impossible to quote the same headline statistics we have used in the past, but even so the results do show that progress and attainment this year have risen, across the whole ability range.

24 year 8 students also had GCSE results to collect. They had taken a short course GCSE in Citizenship studies. Ten of these 13 year old students gained A or A*.

The 2017 summer exam season saw students sitting the new Grade 9-1 GCSEs for the first time in Maths and English. Staff worked incredibly hard to prepare students for examinations that no one had sat or seen.

The Maths and English GCSEs were new exams with different content and exam paper styles. The new 9-1 numerical grades do not map across in a simple way to the A*-G grades, but as a rough guide a grade 9 is higher than an A* and a grade 4 is similar to a C grade.

The 9-1 grades that students have achieved in Maths and English and the A*-G grades for their other subjects will be used by the Department of Education to calculate Attainment 8 and Progress 8 figures for all schools. These will be available sometime in the autumn term.
