The Cooper School is pleased to announce the 2018 GCSE results with 72% of students achieving 5 or more 4+ grades including English and Maths. 100% of students achieved 5 or more GCSE passes. Pleasing results in the individual subject areas of English and Maths showed 83% of students receiving 4+ in English and 78% of students gaining 4+ in Maths. The school had 215 students sitting the examinations in year 11. The Attainment 8 score for the school is 48; this means that the average GCSE score for all students is a 5 (the old C+/B-) which is very pleasing. These results build positively on last year’s, which were the first to be published under the new GCSE examination system.
Mr Baxter, Executive Headteacher at The Cooper School, stated,’ The results this year are testament to the hard work of students and staff despite the increasing complexity of the GCSE examinations for both parties. I am very pleased to see how students have risen to the challenges and we wish them every success for the next stage of their lives, whether it is at The Cooper School sixth form or elsewhere.’
Michael Waine, Chair of Governors, said, ‘Wonderful news for the Year 11 students and their teachers at The Cooper School. I’m so pleased that the students are on their way to interesting and exciting courses and I wish them good luck with their futures.’
There was an enormous amount of individual success stories but some students with the highest overall point scores were Lily Chaundy, Jessica Davies, Paul Grimwade, Melissa White, Daniel Bold, Klaudiusz Stasierowski, Forest Davis, James Aust, James Cribb, Tansy Hammond, Lily Skinner, Emily Campbell and John Cribb. We would like to congratulate these and all other students who were pleased with their examination successes this year.
