St George’s is delighted to congratulate all pupils who have sat IGCSE/GCSE examinations this summer. Following on from the release of the examination results, many pupils have met and exceeded their individual targets for their subjects.
The overall results have seen 58% of all grades being awarded an A*/A or equivalent 7-9 grade and 90% of all grades awarded achieving an A*/C or 9-4. The results compare favourably with leading independent schools in the UK and the top British International Schools globally.
Head of Senior School, Paul Ryan, commended the pupils on their hard work and well-deserved success: “The IGCSE/GCSE results represent a tremendous achievement for both pupils and staff who have worked incredibly hard to achieve this level of success. Parents and families have played an equally vital role in supporting the pupils and I know that there will be celebrations in many countries as these results are received.”
He added: “This is a year of significant change to the examination system, with additional subject content and more rigorous exams, so we are delighted with the results. We are particularly pleased with the value-added measure of 1.16, which highlights the progress and achievement of all pupils. I congratulate all those pupils who have strived to achieve, and exceed, their personal targets and I look forward to welcoming pupils to the Sixth Form to begin their IB studies.”
