Year 11 results 2020

Sevenoaks School’s GCSE and IGCSE results are in line with outstanding results from previous years and a reflection of the hard work of our students.

  • 94.9% of all examinations were graded A/A* or 9/8/7
  • 27 students gained 11 or 12 A*/A +9/8/7 grades, and further 106 achieved 10 A*/A +9/8/7 grades

We are proud of how all our students responded with incredible resilience during this unusual academic year. We are especially proud of those receiving results after two years of hard work and in the midst of so much uncertainty.

Our students all demonstrated maturity and initiative during the period of distance learning and we wish them every success in their continued education. 


Year 11 results 2019

Sevenoaks School celebrated outstanding examination results for Year 11.

This year saw 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.’

Summary

Over 87% of all examinations were graded A or A* equivalent
116 students gained nine or more A*/A grades equivalent


Year 11 results 2018

Sevenoaks School again celebrated outstanding examination results for Year 11.

2018 sees the introduction of 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 most results are graded A*-G.

In the four subjects that were graded 1-9 (English, Maths, Latin and Greek), we are delighted that well over half of the grades received were a 9. 92% of the examinations taken by the 150 candidates were awarded A* or A grades (9 to 7 equivalent). 122 students (over 81%) gained 9 or more A* or A grades (9 to 7 equivalent).

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 eighth year, and by the results in their fourth awarding year of Art, Drama, Music, Technology (Robotics) and Technology (Visual Communications).

The Head, Dr Katy Ricks, 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.'

Summary

92% of all examinations were graded A or A*
122 students gained 9 or more A*/A grades
