GUNNERSBURY CATHOLIC SCHOOL

ACADEMIC ACHIEVEMENTS 2018

 

 

 

Our GCSE results this summer place the school once again in the position as one of the leading boys’ school (fully non-selective) in the country. Complementing the fantastic achievement of the boys in relation to the 5 grades at 9-4 (including English and Mathematics) measure of 89%. These results are particularly impressive in a year where some national percentages fell and the changes in curriculum and grading. Gunnersbury has always set out to be a beacon of excellence for boys’ education and we are delighted to see our pupils’ achievements recognised.

 

With a national debate taking place around ‘traditional’ academic subjects, our boys’ GCSE results in English, Mathematics, Science and Religious Studies continue in their excellence, far exceeding national trends. With each of these subjects securing at least 89% 9-4, Gunnersbury boys’ performance outstrips that of local and national performance.

We are particularly proud to report that 27 boys secured a full set of 8 or more GCSE grades at 9 to 7.
