Results 2020

Congratulations to our Year 11 students of 2020.  Despite the huge challenges facing our students this year, the GCSE results were the best yet, with vastly improved attainment, many more top grades and countless success stories.

Our top ten Castle View students achieved 77 GCSE passes between them, 72 of which were the top grades 9-6 (or equivalent).  These students achieved 14 grade 9s and 30 grade 8s between them.

English and maths attainment improved on last year’s results.  109 students achieved a grade 9-4 in English, with 111 in maths; 68 students achieved a grade 9-5 in English, with 62 in maths; 20 students achieved the top grades (9-7) in English, with 15 in maths.  82 students achieved a double pass in science.  The geography pass rate improved by 12% on last year and the history pass rate improved by 26%.  The French pass rate improved by 16% on last year.

Our disadvantaged students’ overall attainment measure continues to rise and progress estimations indicate that differences between themselves and their peers nationally are reducing.

Other improvements include subjects such as art (up 25%), biology (up 33%), chemistry (up 22%), physics (up 28%), hair & beauty (up 65%) and Sport (up 32%).  The school’s continuing strengths can also be seen in the following subjects:

Construction             -  94% Pass with 50% Merit-Distinction.

Health & Fitness        -  100% Pass with 59% Merit-Distinction.

Dance                        -  89% grades 9-4 with 67% achieving grades 9-6.

Media                        -  Still a strength after 4 years of increase.  64% grades 9-4.

 

As a result, the estimated progress in the ‘Open Bucket’ options continues to improve.  Our students attain well across a broad and balanced curriculum.
