GCSE Results 2016
Students and staff at Wyvern College are very pleased with an encouraging and well deserved set of GCSE results. A strong and positive picture is clear. There are results to be challenged and confirmed and some figures remain estimates.
We are very pleased that our estimated Progress 8 figure across eight qualifying academic subjects is clearly positive and likely to be substantially above the National Average. Value Added, the impact the school has made to each students’ progress over their 5 years, is again above the National Average and the highest in Wyvern’s history.
Of the boys educated at Wyvern, 100% gained 5 or more GCSEs. 92% gained 8 or more GCSEs, including English and Mathematics; an impressive 16% rise on last year. We are delighted that every boy gained GCSE qualifications, showing our determination that all students will leave Wyvern qualified and equipped for further education or training.
Superb results were seen in ICT with 100% gaining A*- C grade or above and there were strong results in Mathematics and a number of other subjects. Progress in Science is greatly improved, especially among boys taking all three sciences.
62% of our students gained at least one top A*/A grade and, although there are many examples of individual success, of particular note is star performer and Head Boy Louis Cotterell with 11 passes, 8 at top A*/A grades.
I am extremely proud of our students and their achievements. They have set themselves up admirably for further success in the future. I am grateful for the hard work, determination and ambition of Wyvern students and staff as well as the support of parents and the local community. We are fully committed to building ever greater success in the future and ensuring that every boy realises his full potential.
