GCSE results 2019: Parkside Community College
Students at Parkside Community College have achieved another set of excellent results in a year where almost all of the GCSEs have now moved to the new, tougher grading system replacing the legacy grades with grades 9 to 1.
More than 83 per cent of students achieved a pass (grade 4) in both English and maths, which is one of the government’s key performance measures, while almost one in five students achieved the highest grade of an 8 or 9 in both of these two subjects.
More than 96 per cent of students achieved a pass in English which is an impressive achievement.
Provisional progress scores suggest that Parkside will have made progress which is well above the national average.
Five Parkside students gained at least 8 grade 9s in their GCSEs, and four of these students also studied and achieved an A in the challenging free standing maths qualification.
These results come on the heels of Parkside Sixth’s excellent International Baccalaureate outcomes in July, in which sixth form students achieved above the international average for points score and pass rate.
Maureen Su, acting headteacher, said: “We are so proud of all of our students for these fantastic results.
"We know that their families will be equally proud as well as relieved that the exam season is behind us.
"We would like to thank all of the staff who have supported our students over the years.
"Good luck to all of our students on their next steps.”

Percentage of students achieving a pass in maths (4 or above): 88.1 per cent
Percentage of students achieving a pass in English (4 or above): 96.6 per cent
