2011 GCSE results smash all recent records

Thursday 25 August 2011

Shrewsbury School's outstanding 2011 GCSE results have smashed all recent records.

98% of the exams taken were passed at grades A* – C,  and 40% of our grades were achieved at A* grade – the highest that Shrewsbury School has ever recorded. An impressive 68% of our grades were achieved at either A* or A grade.

Ten boys gained straight A* grades in all their subjects.

Our GCSE boys will enter the school’s co-educational sixth form next term.  The introduction of girls into Shrewsbury School’s sixth form in 2008 has been such a success that a second girls’ house, Enma Darwin Hall, will be opening this September.
