‘Congratulations to Year 11; the 2016 GCSE results are very impressive and have surpassed the previous year; 98% achieved 5 or more GCSE grades and over 90% achieved 5 or more GCSEs including English and Maths.
Students in Moor Park have achieved fantastic results individually. In particular eleven students obtained 5 or more A*/A grades and nearly 30% of the Year Group have achieved 5 or more A*/ B grades. Overall, 42% achieved at least one A*/A grade within their results making this an even better year for higher grades compared to the previous year.
The Assistant Headteacher, Uzma Ishitaq said, “how pleased she was to see so many of our students achieving high GCSE grades, reflecting all the hard work they have put into their studies. They have responded really well to the changes to the GCSE exams that make the higher grades more difficult. We are delighted with their achievements.”
The Headteacher, Peter Cunningham, commented that, “having a sixth form helps to motivate students as they realise it is a requirement to achieve higher grades in order to successfully apply to continue their education post 16. I am pleased for the students and very proud of their achievements. The results overall are well above the government’s floor targets with over 50 % achieving 5+A*-C so we expect to see a very positive valued-added score when all the grades are finally counted.”
