Record GCSE ResultsIt has been another record year for GCSEs at the Royal Alexandra and Albert School. Not only has the School achieved the highest percentage of pupils gaining 5 passes at grades A*-C, but the percent achieving the top A* and A grades has increased.
“This reflects the approach we have adopted to maximise the potential of every pupil, whatever their ability.” comments Headmaster Paul Spencer Ellis. “This year the number of pupils at this school who achieved 5 A* to C grades has risen from 92% in 2010 to 93% and the percentage of GCSEs graded at A* or A has increased from 23% in 2010 to 29% this year. It’s not all about statistics though. These figures reflect the fact that more and more pupils at this school are achieving grades that will open doors for them in the future, whether it be to study ‘A’ levels, vocational courses, or in employment. They also reflect the hard work and determination of the pupils themselves, and the teachers at this school.
“What makes these results even more remarkable is the fact that they were achieved when teachers were also having to focus on our new Sixth Form. The Sixth Form took its first students in September 2010 and teachers had to adapt to accommodate ‘A’ level teaching into their schedules.”
