Exam Results

Hereford Cathedral School pupils have this year celebrated another set of outstanding exam results in both GCSE and A-Levels in 2019.

Over 70% of all A-Level entries were awarded A*-B grades and nearly half of all students secured nothing less than a B grade. Seven subjects were awarded 100% grades A*-B at A-Level, with particularly strong results in art, business studies and economics.

GCSE results this year were also excellent, with almost half of all grades at the highest level of 9-7, and almost one-third of all grades at 9-8 (A* equivalent).

Fourteen exceptional pupils achieved all 9-7 (A*/A) grades and nearly a third of all pupils achieved nothing less than a 6 (B grade equivalent).

Thirteen pupils achieved five or more top grade 9s. In 11 of the School’s subject departments, over 50% of entries were awarded grade 7 and above (equivalent of grades A*/A). Results for the Maths Department were outstanding, with over 85% of grades in further maths at the very top grades A^/A*/A.

Headmaster Paul Smith said: “I am very pleased for our students, who have worked diligently to achieve excellent results and who are now able to embark on their future careers.”

I joined Hereford Cathedral School in Reception and the school has just got better and better. I’ve really enjoyed Sixth Form.

I know lots of people say this, but there genuinely is that support there to really help you when the going gets tough.
