Jan 09 - Another good year for GCSEs

“Outstanding” Royal Alexandra and Albert School celebrates a huge increase in GCSE results. In the last 4 years the number of pupils achieving 5 GCSEs (A*-C) including English and Maths at the School has increased by nearly 60%.

Headmaster Paul Spencer Ellis comments “58% of pupils achieve 5 GCSEs (A*-C) including English and Maths, and a remarkable 77% achieved 5 GCSEs at C and above. This is impressive given that the nature of boarding can mean that before coming to us pupils may have been to a number of schools and we are often filling gaps in their education, which can particularly affect English and Maths.”

The overall figures mask some exceptional results last year including 100% pass rate for Physics. And for the fourth year running the school is in the top 5% in England for Contextual Value Added.
