GCSE and A Level Successes at STAGS 2021
Congratulations to all of our students on their fantastic achievements this year in the public examinations. The results at both GCSE and A Level have been superb, not least against the challenges of a global pandemic and varied lockdowns. We are incredibly proud of all of our students in Years 11 and 13 who have worked incredibly hard and been rewarded with some truly excellent results this summer.
At A Level a very impressive 51% achieved A* and A grades, 80% achieved A*-B grades and 95% achieved A*-C grades. The average grade across the cohort was B+ and an A Level performance score against national benchmarks places student progress in the top 10% of the country. There are so many individual successes and achievements for all of the students to be so proud and all are now looking forward to embarking on the next phase at university to numerous exciting courses from Medicine, English Literature, Theatre Studies and Mathematics at a wide variety of prestigious Red Brick universities, including Cambridge, Bristol, Exeter and York amongst others, to employment and apprenticeships.
At GCSE, the outcomes of our students are once again superb. The Attainment 8 score, based on the best 8 grades at GCSE was 64.4 with 98.1% of students achieving a standard pass of grade 4 or above in English and 95.2% achieved grade 4 or above in maths. The ‘Basics’ measurement of performance is the number of students who achieved a grade 5 or above in English and Maths, which for our students is a very impressive 87%. Over 75% of students achieved the EBacc qualifications, which are based on English, Maths, Science, a Language and Humanity subject.
This is a fantastic achievement and enables a firm foundation for wonderful future opportunities with dreams and learning aspirations being achieved – these results open so many pathways for our girls and we wish everyone success in their future endeavours.
Enormous praise go to our wonderful STAGS students for their fabulous achievements and a joy to behold. However, this would not have been possible without the fantastic support of parents and teachers and all involved in supporting our STAGS community, through these unprecedented times! The unfailing support has been rewarded and to everyone I offer a huge WELL DONE!!
We welcome our new Year 7 and 12 students on Friday 3rd September at 8.35am and the return of all year groups on Monday 6 September at 8.35am for morning registration and assembly.
As usual breakfast will be available in the restaurant from 8.00am.
With all good wishes
