GCSE results 2019: Cambourne Village College
It is just the second year of GCSE results at Cambourne Village College and there were year-on-year improvements.
Almost 71 per cent of students achieved a 9-4 in both English and maths and almost 52 per cent of students achieved a grade 5 or higher in both English and maths – both results were higher than last year.
Almost a quarter achieved five or more GCSEs with a grade 7 or higher, and seven students achieved five passes with the highest grade, 9.
Some 69 per cent of all pupils achieved 5 or more GCSE passes, including maths and English at level 4, which equates to the old C grade, or higher,
And nearly half (48 per cent) of all pupils achieved five or more passes at level 5 or higher, including maths and English. This is the government’s new ‘good pass’ and equates to a B grade in the former GCSE grading system.
Nealy a quarter (23 per cent) of all pupils achieved five or more passes at grade 7 - which was an A grade.
Principal Claire Coates said: “Congratulations are due to all our pupils - and their teachers - who have all worked so hard to achieve these excellent results. We’re delighted that our pupils will be going on to their post-16 courses with such strong results behind them, and we look forward to hearing about their continued future successes.”
