2014/2015 GCSE and A-level Results

The staff and students of Carshalton Boys Sports College are celebrating yet again following the release of both our GCSE and A–level results. The school goes from strength to strength and this year we achieved our best ever results, testament to the dedication of students and staff toward the shared goal of academic excellence.

GCSE Results

At GCSE 60% of our students attained A* to C in both English and Maths, with 80% of all students making expected progress in English and 70% making expected progress in Maths (up from 72% and 64% respectively from last year’s results, and well above national average).

265 A* and A grades were achieved, with one student exceptionally passing his GCSEs with 9 x A* grades, 3 x A grades and 1 x B grade. Another student achieved 6 x A* grades and 5 x A grades. Our overall A*-A grades have improved from 11% in 2014 to 16%.

National Performance Tables

You may have noticed that National Performance Tables published by the DfE last week (15th October 2015) show results below what we have published on our website. These tables only take into account a student’s first examination result, as opposed to their best examination result, where that student may have been entered early for their examination.

We believe in doing what we think is best for our students, and if we think that early entry, and having more than one opportunity to sit an examination benefits our students then we will continue to do so. You can read more about our rationale here.
