EXAM SUCCESS - OVER 50% OF ALL GRADES A* AND A
Hereford Cathedral School students are celebrating excellent GCSE results today with over 52% of all grades achieved being awarded A* to A grades.
Results in English were outstanding with some 80% of grades achieved in English Literature being awarded an A* and 66% in English Language. Art grades were also very strong with over three quarters of grades at A*/A, while in single sciences 100% of grades were A*-C.
Headmaster Paul Smith is delighted with the students’ results: “Staff and pupils have every reason to feel pleased with this year’s GCSE results.
"Many pupils have made excellent progress over the years, culminating in achievements that match or even exceed their predicted potential. It is particularly pleasing to see more than 75% of pupils, in a diverse range of subjects such as Art, English Literature and Chemistry achieving A*/A grades. However, of equal significance is the large number of more modest grades that reflect hard work, dedication and determination.”
