GCSE Results 2018

Posted on: 23/08/2018

“The Charles Dickens School celebrates the GCSE results with its students this year who have achieved very well in the face of the changes to both the grading and examination system for new GCSEs examined this year.

We are pleased for the students as so many have worked incredibly hard to achieve good results. Many of whom have the entrance criteria needed to continue with their first choice Post-16 Provision. This is a transitional period for both the School, now a sponsored Academy, but also for the GCSE examination system. We are positive the school will continue to grow from strength to strength

39 students achieved 8 or more passes at GCSE/BTEC and 7 students achieved 2 or more A*/A or equivalent passes whilst 3 students achieved 4 or more A*/A which is an amazing achievement.

Overall 42% of students achieved 5+A*-C or equivalent grades of which 37% of students achieved 5+ A*-C grades including Maths and English.

The school is delighted with some notable achievements for individual students with many students achieving their required grades to attend their chosen Post-16 provision, employment or training.

The School would like to thank staff for their hard work and all parents and Governors for their continued support.”
