Almost two thirds of GCSE exams at Ipswich School were graded 9-7 (equivalent of the old A*-A grades) with 100% of pupils securing grade 4 or above in English and Maths. Overall, 99% of exams were awarded grades 9 – 4.
Headmaster Nicholas Weaver said: “Our Year 11 have delivered yet another tremendous set of results. The average grade pupils secured was higher than a 7. This reflects considerable strength right across the whole range of twenty GCSE subjects we teach. Over a quarter of exams in maths, the separate sciences, art and the humanities were at the very top grade of 9. I would like to congratulate all pupils for the hard work they have put in to these demanding new exams. They have an excellent basis for further study at A Level and beyond. These outstanding results show that at Ipswich School we create extraordinary futures for our pupils.”
One in seven pupils secured five or more grade 9s. Sixteen students achieved 10 or more of their GCSE exams at grades 9-7. Some of these students included Euan Caskie, Ameera Cunningham, Florence Grist, Kuncharan Malaravan, Evan McNab, Lily Rendell and Charlie Tweedy.
