GCSE Results 2017

Bishop Challoner has once again enjoyed great success with its GCSE results. Despite the changes to the first wave of the new numerical grading system in Mathematics and English our pupils achieved excellent results. 83 percent of pupils gained at least 5 A*-C grades or numerical equivalent including Maths and English Language, a 14 percent improvement on last year. Our effective monitoring of progress and support strategies has enabled the pupils to reach their potential in so many subjects.

More pupils achieved A*-B grades this year with an impressive 100 per cent A*-B pass rate in Biology, Chemistry, Physics, Dance, Design Technology, Performing Arts and Spanish.

Special congratulations to Oliver who gained 7A* and 3A grades or equivalent. Most notably our other top performers were Megan and Amisha who gained an impressive 6A* or equivalent together with their other excellent grades.
