Queen Ethelburga's Academic Results 2017


We are absolutely delighted with the achievements of our students this year. Given the recent changes to the A level examination system, and the move across to a new grading system for English and Mathematics GCSE, many schools have been unsure as to how well their students would perform. We had every confidence that our Year 13s would achieve at their usual excellent standard however, and A level and BTEC results in both schools were particularly pleasing, with 85% of grades at A* or A standard in the College, and 76% A* or A in the Faculty. Faculty BTEC grades were also inpressive with 91% of all grades being at Distinction or Distinction* standard. In Key Stage 4, 80% of COllege GCSE grades were either A* or A, or a score of 7 or above. In Faculty 3/4 of grades were A* - C or 9-4 in English and Maths.

THese grades match or exceed the outstanding of achievements of recent years, demonstrating that our students have risen to the challenge of these demanding examinations and showing they continue to achieve at the highest possible level

“It is important to understand, though, that the results are only one part of what makes schools and their students successful. With outstanding pastoral care, alongside extensive enrichment, super-curricular and co-curricular programmes, Queen Ethelburga’s supports students in becoming well-rounded, engaged members of society, with great prospects for their future careers.”

“Our very simple ethos of working with each individual to support them in being the best that they can, with the gifts that they have, makes our school community a positive and enjoyable place to be. Our staff are dedicated to developing every student’s potential and character, and I think we can confidently say it is having a great deal of success.”
