An exceptional set of examination results

For the second week running Fyling Hall pupils are celebrating an exceptional set of examination results. Our Year 11 pupils have endured a nerve-wracking wait for the publication of the GCSE results, but their patience has been rewarded. Thirty-eight percent (38%) of exams taken were awarded the equivalent to an A grade or above (7-9), against the national average of 26.3%. Ninety-five percent (95%) of pupils achieved five or more pass grades. A special mention to Tomas Richardson who was awarded the highest grade 9 in twelve subjects and his brother, Toby, who achieved the same grade in ten subjects.

GCSE students collect their results

“I am incredibly proud of our GCSE pupils. They have work so hard and remained focused despite all the challenges they have had to overcome. GCSE courses are difficult enough without the additional pressures of online lessons and uncertainty about if examinations would even take place.” 

Headmaster, Mr Steven Allen, went on to “pay a special tribute to our international pupils. Many remained at school during the lockdowns and have not been home for the duration of the GGSE course due to quarantine rules. For such young people this is a massive sacrifice, and I am particularly pleased to see them rewarded with such good grades.

For a non-selective school these are an excellent set of results. All the pupils should be proud of what they have achieved, and I am confident they will all go on to excel in the next stage of their educational journey.”
