This year 2013, marks a new era in Moor Park. As students received their GCSE results in the main hall, they attended individual interviews to discuss the next step in their education and consider the new option of staying on in school in the new Sixth Form.
Once again the results didn't disappoint with 69% achieving 5 or more top GCSE grades from C to A*. This is even higher than the previous year, which saw some of the highest standards of achievement in the history of the school.
The Maths GCSE results reached a new record with 70% achieving a grade C or higher and 77% of the students making expected progress of three levels from Key Stage 2 to Key Stage 4. Over 50% achieved a grade C or higher in both English and Maths and 75% achieved a grade C or higher in Science.
Other subjects with excellent results include Humanities and French, both with 80% of students achieving a grade C or higher.
Our Able and Talented students also did particularly well with 31 students against a target of 12 achieving 1A*/A grade and 16 students achieving 3A*/A grades against a target of 4 students.
4 students achieved 8A*/A grades against a target of 1 and 9 students achieved 5A*/A grades against a target of 2.
The Headteacher, Mr Cunningham said "that despite Exam Boards raising grade boundaries after the students have commenced their courses; it is to the credit and hard work of the students and commitment of their teachers that they have again achieved excellent results. Without doubt, it is becoming increasingly difficult for teachers and their students to achieve the best grades they can when the goal posts are constantly being moved. Our results are therefore even more remarkable and a testament to all the efforts of the staff."
