Examination Performance 2023

Well done to all our Year 11 pupils!

After another challenging year, our wonderful pupils have achieved some excellent GCSE results!

71% of pupils achieved a Grade 4 (standard pass) or better, in Maths, and 68% in English. 57% of pupils passed both English and Maths. 

49% of pupils achieved a Grade 5 or higher, in English, and 42% in Maths. 33% of pupils attained a Grade 5 or higher in both English and Maths; our attainment 8 score is 42.25, and our EBacc average point score is 3.49. 

This year, the government and Ofqual have reset GCSE grades, so that they are similar to the 2019 profile, prior to the Covid-19 pandemic. Marking and grading have been carried out at a national level, and colleges understand that grading is more challenging this year. If you have any questions, please contact Mrs Merefield, our exams officer, who can advise you about the next steps. 

To quote four of our outstanding pupils:

Calum said, "I feel really great about my results. I've worked really hard, and I'm excited that I can use these for my A-levels next year. Thank you to all my teachers."

Ellie said, "Thank Goodness! I've worked hard for these, and I'm really pleased with my results."

Josh said, "I'm really proud of my results - thank you Purbrook Park."

Morgan, our Head Boy, upon discovering his seven grade 9s, two grade 8s, one grade 7, and a Distinction Star (the highest grade possible) in BTEC Sport, said, "Yeah, they're alright!"

It was brilliant to see so many pupils, parents, and colleagues celebrating together in school today. 

We are proud of every one of you!
