GCSE Results


2015-16 Examination Results

The Emmbrook School is delighted to celebrate the success of our students.

 GCSE Results:

It is important to us that each student be given the best chance to succeed. Therefore some of our students were given multiple attempts to secure the best possible grade in English and Maths. This means that there is a difference between our first results (the grades achieved by students on their first sitting of an exam) and our best results (the actual grades achieved by students overall).

GCSE Results Comparison 


There was considerable success for students achieving top pass grades. An impressive 46% of all students received at least one A* or A grade, with a group of 15 students securing A* or A passes across 9 or more subjects. 1 in 5 of all results were A grade, with around a quarter of those grades reaching A*.

There was significant success in a wide range of subjects, with over a quarter of all passes at A* and A grade in Maths and Further Maths, Biology, Chemistry and Physics, Computing and IT, Art, Business Studies, Drama, History, Music and Spanish.

Top grades improve by 2% with almost 25% of all grades being A* and A and almost 25% of all students getting at least 5+ A* and A grades.
The 5+ A*-C including English and Maths was down at 59% even though the pass rate for both English and Maths was over 70% A*-C  for all students. The school is disappointed that once again the grade mark boundaries for the  Edexcel GCSE Maths course were altered after the students had completed the examinations and which had a significant impact upon our pass rate.
Record results for the Science department with 100% A*-C at Triple Science and 75% A*-C in the Additional Science.
The Creative and Expressive Arts subjects have all done well with Drama and Music achieving 100% A*-C and  Art achieving 99% A*-C
All three Modern Foreign Languages (French, German and Spanish) achieved over 80% A*-C grades.

Over 76% of the two hundred students achieved at least 5 A*-C grades including both English and Maths ( each of which achieved a fantastic 82% A*-C pass rate with an astonishing 24% at grade A* or A). Overall, 80% of our students achieved at least 5 A*-C grades. The average points score per student rose to 433.
