Great GCSE results for students at Caedmon College and Eskdale School.
It’s been great to celebrate the success of our Year 11 students within the federation today as they have received their GCSE results. They have achieved very positive results, which is to their credit, particularly because of the challenges that lockdown and remote education have brought.
We are very pleased to report at Caedmon College 70% of our Year 11 students achieved passes (at least a grade 4) in 5 or more subjects, including English and Maths, which is our best ever percentage at this measure. Over a third of our students went one better and achieved strong passes (at least a grade 5) in 5 or more subjects including English and Maths, and 41 students had at least one grade 7 or higher in their set of results. Progress for the whole group of students is also our best ever, which means that on average our students achieved one fifth of a grade better than students nationally, when compared to 2019 when exams last took place.
Whilst at Eskdale School 72% of Y11 achieved passes (at least grade 4) in 5 or more subjects including English and Maths. With 38% of students achieving strong passes (at least a grade 5) in 5 or more subjects including English and Maths. Students achieved 202 grade 7 or higher across all subjects. Progress in comparison has improved with students achieving a fifth of a grade better when exams were last sat. in 2019.
These results at both schools have come about as a result of students’ hard work and the efforts of their teachers, and both staff and governors want to say a huge well done to them all.
As partners within the Whitby Secondary Partnership, we would like to pass on congratulations to all of our Year 11 students. It is also great to know that the ongoing collaboration between the two schools to raise standards is resulting in record numbers of students from both schools staying with us as part of Whitby Sixth Form from September to continue their education.
