Key Stage 4 Exam Results

Imberhorne’s students celebrated today as they received their GCSE and Btec results.

The school has retained a 99% pass rate (grade 9 – 1).  73% of grades, across all subjects, were grade 4 or above with 79% of grades in English at 4+ and 74% of maths grades at 4+.  In addition to this 77% of all grades in Science were 4+.  We are particularly pleased with a substantial increase in the very highest grade, 84 grade 9’s were awarded across all subjects (about 3.5% of the total number of grades).  23 grade 9’s were awarded in Science, 16 in English and 7 in Maths.

One student attained a grade 9 in all of their subjects (eleven in total) which is a remarkable achievement. A further three students attained seven grade 9’s each.   Eleven students in total attained grade 9 or 8 in six or more of their subjects.  These are difficult grades to achieve and reflect very well on these individuals who should be extremely proud of such success.

A number of subject areas excelled, some key performances were as follows:

  • 100% of the students studying GCSE Textiles gained grade 4 or higher
  • About one fifth of the year group studied the individual sciences, thepercentage achieving grade 4+ in Biology, Chemistry and Physics was well over 90%
  • In addition to this 94% of students studying GCSE Electronics attained a grade 4 or higher along with 92% of students studying Italian
  • 85% of students studying GCSE Dance or GCSE Graphics also attained grade 4+
  • Humanities and the Arts subjects performed very consistently, retaining the strong standards set in previous years

We are delighted that the year group, as a whole, have performed well with the majority of students meeting or surpassing their target grades.  Ultimately, what we value most highly is that students have fulfilled their potential. 

We look forward to welcoming back many of our students into the 6th form and for those embarking on courses elsewhere we wish them the very best of luck in their future ventures.

Post 16 Results – Record Exam Success

Imberhorne’s Sixth Form students celebrated today as they received their A level and Btec results.

The school has retained a 99% pass rate with 58% of entries at grade A*-B (or equivalent) and 84% at grade A*-C (or equivalent).  These are impressive results and the best the school has ever achieved, we are rightly very proud of our students for their hard work and commitment.  Such success does not come without a great deal of effort.  Over 33% of all entries were grade A/A* with 14 students gaining at least 3 A/A* grades (or equivalent), this is a notable achievement and reflects very well on these individuals who should be congratulated for their endeavours.

A number of subject areas excelled, some key performances were as follows:

  • 50% of all grades in maths were A/A*
  • 18 students were entered for the extended project (in addition to their 3 A level subjects), 15 of these students achieved A/A* grades
  • 8 subjects had 75% or more grades at A*/B, this included Art & Design, Chemistry, French, Italian, Politics, Science, Performing Arts and Music

We are delighted that the year group, as a whole, have performed so well with the overwhelming majority of students meeting or surpassing their target grades.  Ultimately, what we value most highly is that students have fulfilled their potential.  Whilst a significant number of students are embarking on University courses a sizeable number are also starting apprenticeships or moving directly into employment, we wish them well for the future and thank them for all they have done for the school in their time here.  They are outstanding individuals with a great deal to offer the wider community.
