GCSE Results 2018

Another excellent year of GCSE results

Well done to all of our students!

Students of the Class of 2018 have been awarded an excellent set of GCSE results, rewarding their hard work over the last two years. Of the 148 students in Year 11, 73% achieved a Grade 4 or above in English and Maths; 54% of them achieved a Grade 5 or higher. Pass rates in both of these two subjects at the Grade 4 and above, needed for future employment, education or training, were over 80%.

Congratulations to all of our students, some of whom overcame some personal challenges to achieve some excellent GCSE grades. We ask students at Claydon High School to ‘be the best they can be’ in all aspects of their lives and these results reflect their commitment to achieving that and are a fitting recognition for a year group who also impressed us with sporting, musical, performance and debating skills over their five years with us.

There were successes in many areas across the school including pass rates at Grade 5 and above in the following subjects: Biology at 77%, Chemistry and Physics at 72.4%, Food Technology at 83%, Music at 67%, PE at 67% and Business Studies at 85%. Pass rates at the highest grades of A-A* or Grade 7 and above were achieved in the Sciences, History, Spanish, Business Studies, PE, Food Technology and Further Maths. Over 20% of all grades were awarded at this high standard.

A huge thank you to all the teaching and support staff who have worked alongside our young people to achieve these outcomes, our governors and the South Suffolk Learning Trust for supporting our work, and to the families and parents/carers who have been part of the journey.

As our students move onto further education or employment with training, we wish them all the very best of luck.
