Hessle High School Maintain High Standards with Strong GCSE Results

Hessle High School 2013 GCSE highlights:

  • Overall 90% pass rate – 5 GCSEs grades A* - C
  • 60% of students achieved Gold Standard – 5 GCSEs grades A* - C including Maths & English
  • 32% achieved Ebacalaureat
  • Over half of students have gone on to study A Levels and Level 3 qualifications at Hessle Sixth Form College
  • A* - G pass rate 100%

Following the outstanding A Level success reported last week, Hessle High School is maintaining high standards with strong GCSE results being reported for 2013.

Sarah Young, Executive Headteacher commented, ‘In light of the widely reported and controversial changes that have been made to the GCSE exams, I am delighted with Hessle High’s GCSE results this year. We have some wonderful individual success stories and the students should be proud of the hard work and effort they have put it in. Regardless of the exams being made tougher and the marking tighter making it difficult to actually compare year on year results, every one of our students passed their exams with 60% achieving the A* - C Gold standard. This was similar to 2012 when we reported our best ever results.’

‘I would like to take this opportunity to congratulate the students and thank them, their parents and our staff members for their hard work over the past year.’
