GCSE Results 2013

We are pleased with the GCSE results achieved by our Year 11 students this summer, which represent a significant 8% rise since 2012 in the number of students achieving 5 or more A*-C grades including GCSE English Language and Mathematics. Provisionally about 68% of students achieved this threshold.

For particular mention are the eleven students who achieved A* or A grades in every subject they took this summer, including Rhys Probert with 10 A*s and Nancy Serle with 9A*s.

Well done to the students who worked hard to secure these results. This is the first year that all students will need to progress to further education or training beyond Year 11 and so we wish them all well in the study routes that they choose.

A Level Results Summer 2013

We are delighted to report great success at A level this year. Results have improved further from our previous years' successes: 82% of grades were at grade C or better this is an increase from 80% last year. 52% of all grades were between A* and B. At the very top grades, 27% of all results were between an A* and A. Our students have done themselves and the school proud.

We know how competitive universities and the job market are at this time, so it is fantastic that so many students have got what they deserve and will go onto the courses and jobs of their choice.

The success is due to hard work and excellent relationships between staff, students and families. Congratulations to all our year 13 students.

Year 13 Destinations

Matthew Arnold Sixth Form has enjoyed a brilliant year in terms of the destinations on to which our sixth form students are now progressing. This year seven of our students are taking up places at Oxford and Cambridge in subjects including: Natural Sciences, History, Geography, Mathematics and Modern Languages. This is a record for Matthew Arnold and accounts for 11% of our total number of students who applied to university. Students have also gained places at prestigious universities in highly competitive courses such as Medicine at Imperial College and Dental Science at Bristol.

Overall 44% of our students who applied for university will be taking up places at Russell Group universities (24 research focused and highly competitive universities). In the highly competitive university entrance environment this is an outstanding level of achievement for our students.

Whilst many of our students do progress onto university, others want to pursue a career directly after their A levels and instead choose to start an apprenticeship. This year three of our students have obtained extremely good apprenticeships in Accountancy, Business Management and Land Management & Horticulture.

This year the exceptional destinations that our students are choosing is something that we are extremely proud of and demonstrates the work, commitment and progress that our students have made over the past two years; we wish them well in their future endeavours.
