Following the release of last week’s A-Level outcomes it was the turn of Year 11 students to return to Withernsea High School to collect their GCSE results today.
This year 59% of students gained an A*-C grade in both English and Maths, which represents an improvement in attainment in both subjects for a third consecutive year. In addition, attainment in Science and a significant number of other foundation subjects continues to be strong.
Withernsea High School Sixth Form students returned to school today (18/08/16) to collect their A-Level results and were joined by several members of staff as they celebrated another year of very good results.
Overall results improved on last year’s performance with the school recording an improved pass rate of 98% across A-Level and Level 3 BTEC subjects, a rise of 1% on last year. As with 2015, the percentage of grades awarded at the very highest level remained strong with 47% of results being graded at A*-B or equivalent.
