78% of students received A* – C in English and Maths; significiantly above national averages. Twenty nine students achieved an amazing nine or more A/A* grades, including Asha Vanzara, who achieved A* grades in all eleven of her GCSEs. The progress made by students from the start of Year 7 to the end of Year 11 is impressive as demonstrated by the new Progress 8 measure introduced nationally this year. We anticipate that the Progress 8 for Queensmead will be over 0.7, the implication of this is that on average each student has done over two thirds of a grade better per subject than other students nationally with the same KS2 data.
Post 16 students have received outstanding results enabling the majority to pursue their first choice University place. 55% of students achieved A* – B grades, the highest the school has ever seen, with a 99% pass rate.
There are numerous success stories of students with fantastic grades but a particular highlight is Samuel Parritt-Gell confirming his place at Jesus College, Oxford University, to read Philosophy, Politics and Economics.
