Oriel High School is celebrating the record-breaking achievements of our Year 11 students in this year’s public examination results, bucking the national trend, with the year group recording the school’s best ever results.
75% of the Year 11 students achieved 5 or more GCSE qualifications at grades A* to C, with almost one in four of all grades being awarded at the very highest grades of A* and A. 50% of all grades were A*, A or B. In addition the A* to C rate averaged 79% in GCSE English and Maths. These impressive results illustrate Oriel High School’s continued and further improving high attainment figures at GCSE and BTEC.
Headteacher, Philip Stack, commented: ‘We are delighted with these results, our Year 11 students worked very hard in preparation for their examinations and truly deserve this success, in the vast majority of cases our students have made outstanding progress and met or exceeded their ambitious and challenging individual targets. I am very proud of them and their achievements. I am also very grateful to the staff for their dedication and commitment and to our families for their support. These results are a real credit to our students and demonstrate the strong sense of partnership at our school.
A high percentage of the year group will now progress into the schools successful Sixth Form with other students securing places at other local colleges.
