GCSE results 2017: Record-breaking day at The Crest Academy

As Wellingborough moves toward the new GCSE grading system (where exams are graded 9 - 1) in maths, comparison with previous years is hard, but the grades were very pleasing and three Year 11 pupils achieved the new Grade 9 (which is equivalent to a very high A*).

Up the road, students at All Hallows Catholic School have achieved record breaking results, with 83 per cent of students achieving five A* to C or 9 to 4 grades including both English and maths, with 38 per cent of all grades being A* to A or 9 to 7.

Andy Jackson, head of Key Stage 4 said: "This is a smashing year group, and I know teachers have really enjoyed working with them".

Saima Miah achieved 10 A* to A grades and said: "I'm very proud of myself".

This year saw the introduction of a new scoring system, which included English and maths being scored on a 1-9 - with 9 the highest results and 1 the lowest.

"Our students and staff have worked so hard and they have achieved stunning results across the whole range of subjects".

"This is projected to put PACA in the top 5 per cent nationally of similar schools".

There have been big changes to the major GCSE subjects of English and mathematics.

"Today's results will mean that many of our students will now be able to take up places in our Sixth Form and we look forward to welcoming them back in September to continue their education at Walthamstow Academy".

He said: "I am quite confident and I didn't stress too much".

The 16-year-old said: "I never thought I'd get a 9 in English literature".

The average pass result which was a C or a 4 under the new system has dropped to 66.3%. "It's fantastic, especially, after the turmoil of the new exams; students have done brilliantly, so well done to them and the staff".

Jack Ashton achieved three A grades and grade 7 in English Literature.

"I was nervous before getting my results and waiting the whole summer makes it all the more hard".
