Outstanding Student Achievements at The Vyne School
There were smiles all round this morning from students and staff as students arrived to collect their GCSE results at The Vyne School. The results achieved by the students were very impressive with over 30% of students achieving a grade 9 to 7 ( equivalent to an A**/A*/A ) in either maths or English and over 10% achieving grade 9 to 7 in both maths and English.
In English an excellent 75% of students achieved a GCSE grade 9 to 4 (equivalent to the former A* to C) with 21% achieving an incredible grade 9 to 7 (equivalent to an A**/A*/A). Maths also did exceedingly well with 73% achieving grades 9 to 4. 62% of students are celebrating their success with a grade 9 to 4 in the new Combined Science GCSE. Overall 69% of students secured grades 9 to 4 in the much coveted Maths and English.
Headteacher Nicola Pearce joined the school in January and has worked with the excellent team at The Vyne to focus relentlessly on delivering the highest quality teaching and learning and on supporting students to be well prepared for the exams.
Mrs Pearce said, “I am incredibly proud of our students who all worked so hard to achieve these excellent results which will give them many choices and opportunities as they move forwards in life.
We believe that these results demonstrate the way we work in partnership with our students and their families to support everyone to achieve their best. I look forward to hearing about the new challenges and opportunities our students will now go on to.”
Alongside the excellent overall pass rate the school’s focus on outstanding teaching and learning is also paying dividends on the high grade passes too. Nicola Pearce continues: “We have seen a significant increase in the number of students achieving the very highest grades, which in the former system equates to A**/A*/A. Not only have they passed these challenging exams but they have also achieved the best grades possible.”
There were some stand-out performances with a number of students celebrating a huge haul of high grade passes including our top performing student who achieved all grade 9/8’s across the board.
Achievement in Modern Foreign Languages was strong, and history and geography both saw students achieving top grades. The overall progress of students across the cohort was strong and attainment for students achieving 5 GCSE’s including English and maths at grade 4 or above was 60%.
The Vyne will be hosting an Open Evening on Tuesday 24 September 2019 from 6.00pm for prospective families wishing to learn more about the school. Open Mornings will also be held on Wednesday 2 nd October and Thursday 3 rd October 2019, 9.15am to 10.30am.
