Best ever Maths results are the highlight of The Kimberley School’s 2016 GCSE results

The Kimberley School are celebrating their best ever GCSE Maths results this year. More than three quarters of the Year 11 students gained an A* – C grade in maths this year with 22% at A* or A grades. Overall 77% achieved a C grade or above in Maths which is 10% above the national average in 2015. The new ‘Basics’ measure introduced for 2016 based on the percentage of students gaining A*-C grades in both English and Maths was also a pleasing feature of the results with 62.5% of students achieving this compared to 59% nationally in 2015.

Whilst there are many students who will be celebrating their results, some students in particular have achieved the very highest grades:

Students are now moving on to the next stage of their careers: one hundred students will be returning to The Kimberley School Sixth Form to pursue A Level and Level 2 courses, many others are continuing in education at local colleges following courses as diverse as plumbing, hair and beauty, animal care and construction. An increasing number of students are also moving on to apprenticeship opportunities with a range of employers including Bosch, the NHS and Volkswagen. We wish all our students the very best of luck in their new ventures and congratulate them on their hard work and the success they have achieved at GCSE.
