We are delighted to have another set of outstanding results.
In 2019, 62% of students have achieved the key benchmark of achieving grade 5 and above in both English and mathematics.
Ten of our students achieved 10 GCSEs all at grade 7 or better. One student achieved 10 grade 9s. 30% of students achieved five or more passes at grade 7 or above. 14% of students achieved eight or more passes at grades 7 or above.
Achievement in the subjects that make up the English Baccalaureate was outstanding, with 35% of students gaining passes at grade 5 or better in all of English, mathematics, two sciences, a language and a humanity. The national average for this measure in 2018 was only 17%, so students are leaving Gillotts exceptionally well prepared in the ‘facilitating subjects’ that are highly valued by the Russell Group universities. 24% of students gained a grade 7 or better in English Language and 29% in mathematics. 87% achieved a grade 4+ in English and 91% in mathematics. In each of biology, chemistry, physics, history and geography, over 40% of grades were grade 7 or better.
Over recent years, we have seen a marked and consistent improvement in results at Gillotts and we are delighted with this year’s results. These results will confirm us as one of the consistently best performing schools in Oxfordshire. This is a consequence of the commitment and hard work of the students and staff. We are very proud of all that the students have achieved and would also like to recognise all the support that students have received from their families. These results come about through successful collaboration between student, teachers and parents.
