Summer Examination Results 2018
A huge congratulations to all our students who sat examinations and who were highly successful this summer. A tremendous thanks must go to all our staff who have supported and encouraged the students to achieve another year of very pleasing results. Students could not achieve this success without the support and dedication from all parents.
We are delighted for the students themselves who have worked extremely hard, many giving up their Easter holidays to attend extra revision lessons organised by staff. They thoroughly deserve their success and have laid a solid foundation for future achievement.
Our overall pass rate at A Level was 96.47% and our percentage of A* grades was 5.45%. The Average Point Score achieved was 31.63, which is broadly in line with previous years. The proportion of A*/A grades was 15.06%, A*/B grades was 43.91% and A*/C grades was 68.59%.
At GCSE we achieved 26.39% 9 to 8 (or A*) grades with twenty-five students achieving 6 or more of these grades across their subjects. The proportion of 9 to 7 (or A*/A) grades was 49.02% with nine of our students achieving only 9 to 7 grades. The proportion of 9 to 6 (A*/B) grades was 73.83% and the proportion of students achieving 5 or more grades at 9 to 4 (A* to C) including English and Mathematics was 93.94%.
In Mathematics, English Language and English Literature we performed very well indeed. 23.48% of our students achieved grades 8 or 9 in Mathematics, with 40.91% at grades 9 to 7 (compared with the National figure of 20.0%). In English Language we achieved 9.09% of the top grade 9 (compared with the National figure of 2.6%) and our grade 9 to 7 percentage was 55.30% (compared to the National figure of 17.5%). English Literature was even better with 10.61% of our students achieving the top grade (compared to the National figure of 3.5%) and for grades at 9 to 7 we achieved 58.33% (compared to the National figure of 20.0%).
The performance measures of Attainment 8 and Progress 8 were very pleasing and an improvement on last year. In 2018 our Attainment 8 score is 6.6 (up from 6.3) and our provisional Progress 8 score is +0.34 (up from +0.26). This clearly indicates that our students are making significant improvements to the grades they obtain at GCSE.
74% of students entered the English Baccalaureate in 2018, with 56% of all students attaining the requirements. This is in line with the figures for the last two years. At Mayfield Grammar School we do not compel students to follow an Ebacc Curriculum at GCSE. As such, our students achieved very highly in subjects beyond the Ebacc such as Art, Economics, PE, Religious Studies and Technology. We continue to place a high priority on maintaining a broad and balanced curriculum for all students.
