Shrewsbury School

Another strong year for GCSE results

Thursday 22 August 2013

Despite reports in the national media of a drop in the proportion of GCSE exam entries awarded top grades, we are delighted to record another very strong year of results at Shrewsbury.

A total of 65% of the exams were awarded an A* or A grade, compared with the national average of 21.3%.  The overall pass rate was 98.2%, which is also substantially higher than the national average.

In a remarkable display of mathematical prowess, 63 out of 127 pupils gained A* grades in mathematics - a school record. 

Four pupils, Daniel Edwards, Sonny Koh, Jacob Rumble and Alexander Shaw, each gained 10 straight A* grades and a further 24 pupils gained either A* or A grades in all their subjects.

Headmaster, Mark Turner, commented that he was delighted with the success of all his pupils. “These excellent results are a vindication of the hard work that our pupils have put in throughout their time at Shrewsbury School and the tremendous guidance and support they have received from their teachers.”
