St Aloysius celebrates excellent GCSE outcomes

Students were celebrating, with a clean sweep of outstanding success in the core subjects, an amazing 70% achieved the benchmark of a Grade 4 or above in both English and Mathematics, surpassing last year’s record and national outcomes. Outstanding performances included 100% of students achieving 9-4 grades, in Biology, Chemistry, and Physics. Other strong achievements included outstanding outcomes in English at 83%, Maths at 74%, as well as Art at 90%, Graphics at 82%, Technology at 75%, and PE at 82%. Humanities also performed very well with History at 68% and Geography 68%. We are confident that progress released in the Autumn will affirm the fantastic work our students and staff have done. This represents a continued improvement over the 2018 results and follows the substantial improvement in this year’s A level results and indicates that the most able students performed half of one grade better than the national average of 2018.
