Outstanding Year 11 results for 2019!
Sevenoaks School is again celebrating outstanding examination results for Year 11.
- Over 87% of all examinations were graded A or A* equivalent
- 116 students gained nine or more A*/A grades equivalent
This year sees even more subjects moving to the new GCSEs graded 1–9. The highest grade 9 was harder to achieve than the previous A*, in a tougher, revised GCSE exam system.
While for many schools in England most of their GCSEs will be graded 1-9, Sevenoaks School students take a mixture of GCSEs, IGCSEs and SSC (Sevenoaks School Certificate), where many results are still graded A*-G. All students took three separate IGCSE sciences, Mathematics and English Language. We were particularly delighted by the success in our own externally moderated Sevenoaks School Certificate in English Literature, now in its ninth year, and by the results in their fifth awarding year of Art, Drama, Music, Technology (Robotics) and Technology (Visual Communications).
The Acting Head, Theresa Homewood, said, ‘These results are excellent, and a superb achievement for both students and teachers. We are delighted that our students start the IB Diploma Programme with such strong qualifications.’< Back
