GCSE Performance

2018

 

We are delighted to announce that our students have once again achieved outstanding GCSE results. They have more than risen to the challenges of the new, tougher, examinations with over one third of all students achieving the very highest grades.

84% achieved five 9-4 grades (GCSE pass) including English and Maths and 99% achieved at least five qualifications which means that they will be able to continue to the next stage of their careers with confidence and continued success.

Many congratulations to all our students on their hard work and achievements and thanks to our teachers, parents and families for all the fantastic support provided.

We welcome back the majority of our students into our Sixth Form and wish those continuing with their journey beyond Waddesdon the very best of luck.
