We are delighted to share another set of fantastic results for the pupils at Studley High School. As a cohort last year’s Year 11 had KS2 (from Year 6 SATS) scores slightly below national performance when they were in Year 6, yet they have performed significantly above average across the full range of GCSE and level 2 qualifications.
Provisional progress data shows that our pupils have achieved a Progress 8 score of 0.32 demonstrating a 1/3 of a grade higher in each GCSE taken when compared to an ‘average’ school. This can be further broken down to show that our higher attaining pupils on entry, achieved a progress score of 0.25, Our middle attaining pupils on entry, achieved a progress score of 0.55 and our lower attaining pupils on entry, performed in line with national performance.
There are many success stories with a number of pupils achieving multiple grade 9s. Amongst those celebrating excellent attainment are:
- Ellie Harley who achieved 6 grade 9s, 2 grade 8s and 2 grade 7s
- Catalina Chavez who achieved 4 grade 9s, 5 grade 8s and a Distinction
- Ryan Allington who achieved 1 grade 9, 4 grade 8s, 2 grade 7s and 2 5s
- Skyla Dartnall who achieved 3 grade 9s, 3 grade 8s, 1 grade 6 and 2 grade 5s.
- Matt Yapp who achieved 1 grade 9, 2 grade 8s 5 grade 7s and a grade 5.
- Jack Foreman who achieved 3 grade 8s, 5 grade 7s, 1 grade 6 and a C.
- Abdul Muhaymun who achieved 2 grade 8s, 3 grade 7s and 3 grade 6s
Special mention must also go to Larasati Neville who achieved a clean sweep of 10 grade 9s across all of her subjects. This is a remarkable achievement and places her in a very select group of pupils nationally. Across the top 50 performing pupils there were over 250 7+ grades.
A key focus for us as a school last year was to ensure high performance across all subject areas. As a result of this focus we are delighted that performance in Languages, Sciences, Arts, ICT, PE, English and Maths is well above national performance. This has allowed many of our pupils to access 6th form places at Alcester Grammar School and St Augustine’s as well as many accessing level 3 courses at HOW college and Stratford College.
Our 9-7 pass rate was well above national performance with 24% of grades at 9-7.
9-4 pass rates across subject areas are listed below;
Art and Photography 90%
Biology (60 pupils) 98%
Chemistry (60 pupils) 98%
Physics (60 pupils) 96%
Combined science (77 pupils) 55%
Computer science 50%
Religious Studies 69% (whole cohort entry)
English Lang 77%
English Lit 72%
Resistant Materials 67%
Most of the above results are well above national figures and all represent good or excellent progress for the cohorts of pupils in each subject.
In terms of headline figures:
9-4 English 79% (nat approx 75%)
9-5 English 64% (nat approx 59%)
9-7 English 31% (nat approx 21%)
9-4 Maths 76% (nat approx 69%)
9-5 Maths 59% (nat approx 48%)
9-7 Maths 22% (nat approx 17%)
Pupils achieving 9-4 English and Maths 70% (nat approx 63%)
Pupils achieving 9-5 English and Maths 51% (nat approx 39%)
We are very proud of the efforts of our pupils and look forward to hearing about their successes in the future. All 137 pupils have moved into 6th form, college, apprenticeship or work placements.
Quite simply, it has been a delight to celebrate the successes of Studley High School pupils’ GCSE results this year. The class of 2017 have achieved the best results in the school’s history, even when set against the backdrop of educational reform.
The overall results are fantastic with almost 90% of pupils achieving a pass in English and over 80% achieving a pass in Maths. These are excellent results meaning that 78% of pupils achieved a pass in both English and Maths. Perhaps the most telling figures are those demonstrating that across all faculties GCSE A*- C grades have improved further or remained strong.
In the arts subjects with Art, Photography, Music and Drama, pupils averaged 90% A*- C. In Science where over 50% of the cohort sat Triple Science GCSEs, we have Biology on 100% A*- C and Chemistry and Physics with 99% and 96% A*- C respectively. The record results continue in Humanities with almost 85% of pupils achieving A*- C in Religious Studies (with almost 150 entries!), 75% A*- C in Geography and in History where 25% of pupils achieved A and A* grades and performed above national results. In the Technology and IT subjects, pupils have performed very strongly with 100% A*- C grades in Food Technology and also in Catering and the majority of pupils achieving A*- C in Resistant Materials. Business Studies pupils celebrate almost 85% A*- C. In languages the 100% A*- C continue in German and French results are over 70% A*- C. Pupils have also performed well in PE where almost 80% achieved A*- C. It is such a pleasure to see the strength of performance across a broad curriculum. This can be seen in the fact that 24% of all grades were A or A* and over 50 pupils achieved at least 3 A/A* grades.
In terms of individual successes we have some very high attainers: Eleanor Sutton Smith in achieving 5A* and 5As, Michael Parry for achieving Grade 9 in Maths, 4A*, 3As and 2Bs, Madeline Ritchie for achieving Grade 9 in Maths, 3A*, 5As and a B, Chloe Burborough for achieving a Grade 9 in English, 3A*s, 4As and 2 Bs; Rosalie Oakes for achieving a Distinction in Music, 2A*, 6As and a B, Rachel Herbert for achieving 3A*, 5As and 2Bs, Olivia Rambini for achieving 2A*, 7As and a B, Emily Saunders for achieving 1A* and 9As, but to name a few.
In terms of progress made since year 7 so many of our pupils have also performed superbly. Our key figures indicate high attainment and very good progress. We work incredibly hard to ensure our pupils are supported pastorally and academically and our pupils have worked hard and deserve to do brilliantly.
We wish them all the best of luck for the next chapter of their lives.
