2017 GCSE Results Press Release

This has been an incredibly successful year for Fallibroome’s GCSE students!

Under the new examination regime, Grade 4 is considered to be equivalent to the old Grade C and Grade 7 is viewed as the equivalent of the old Grade A. With this in mind, we are delighted that 89% of our students achieved Grade 4 or higher in English and 83% in Maths. 80% of our students achieved five GCSEs including English and Maths at Grade C/4. This success has been replicated right across the curriculum with an astonishing 36% of our grades being scored as either A*/A or 9/8/7. This places our GCSE results this year in line with our best ever outcomes.

We are incredibly proud of the hard work that was done by so many of our students, many of whom have made remarkable progress since joining us in Year 7. The following students returned results that were particularly impressive in this respect:

  • Milo Bache
  • Alison Berges-Vazquez
  • Nathan Bridget
  • Eric Burns
  • Alex Campling
  • Jay Carney

We also saw a large number of students achieve the remarkable feat of returning the highest grades (A*/A or 9/8/7) in nine or more subjects. This sort of achievement takes an enormous amount of hard work and commitment and is especially impressive during a period of significant change in the examination system. From this list, special credit is due to Jack Newby and Abigail Wheeler who achieved the remarkable feat of returning a Grade 9 in both English and Maths.

Behind the examination statistics are some amazing individual success stories. For example, Tom Brindley and Nat Costigan achieved excellent academic outcomes while also competing at a national level in their chosen sports. We were also particularly delighted by the achievements of Jed Hunter and Lily Cawley who got great results despite the significant personal challenges that they faced. Howard Xu secured six grades at A or A* despite having English as a second language. These individual achievements serve to illustrate the determination and work ethic of our students and the enormous efforts made by our staff to help every student to overcome their personal challenges.

Fallibroome Trust CEO Peter Rubery said:

“Students and their teachers deserve congratulations for achieving such positive results at a time of immense uncertainty. These results are a testament to the hard work of a terrific group of students and are the icing on the cake for the Trust as we have had a year of achievement across our Primary and Secondary schools.”

Fallibroome Headteacher Francis Power said:

“Fallibroome has a proud record of returning excellent examination outcomes and this year has been no exception. We are delighted that the hard work of our staff and students has paid off so spectacularly. Many of our students will be rejoining us in the Sixth Form in the weeks ahead and we look forward to continuing to support them through their A-Level programmes. Others will leave to pursue other courses and opportunities and they do so with our best wishes and our thanks for their contribution to the school over the last five years.”
