This follows the A-level results, reported last week here.

Brine Leas is delighted with another set of amazing G.C.S.E. results.

Over 60% of our students attained a strong pass (Grade 5 or higher) in both English and Mathematics, with nearly 80% gaining a standard pass (Grade 4+) in both English and Mathematics against the national average of 67%. 28% of G.C.S.E. grades, from all subjects, were Grade 7 or above, with a remarkable 7.5% being Grade 9, which is in excess of the former A* grade.

200 students achieved at least 8 full G.C.S.E. qualifications, with 186 obtaining 9 and 32 securing 10 full G.C.S.E.s. 2 students received Grade 9 results in each of their 10 G.C.S.E. studies. (In 2019, only 732 students in England achieved this from over 700,000 candidates.)

Once again, the school has attained positive 'value added' across the whole cohort; this means that Brine Leas students have done better, across all subjects, than the national averages.

English, Mathematics and Science all made positive 'value added' and performed significantly in excess of the national standards.

20 subjects obtained the most challenging, and hardest to achieve, Grade 9s. In Biology, Chemistry, Physics, Computer Science, Geography, Religious Education and Graphic Products at least 10% of the results were Grade 9s. Notably Religious Education secured 39% Grade 9s, Computer Science 25% and Geography 20%.

Headteacher, David Cole, said, "Students and staff at Brine Leas have once again produced some amazing results which is 100% down to their hard work, effort and commitment. I am pleased that so many students have achieved their potential and will be moving on to A Levels, BTecs, apprenticeships and employment. The top grades are particularly pleasing, but just as important to me are those students who achieved any grade from 9 to 1 if they reached their potential in doing so. We wish all our students well, whether their destination is Brine Leas Sixth Form, specialist colleges or training."
