GCSE Results 2016
We are delighted for our Year 11 students who are picking up a great set of GCSE results from Newent Community School and Sixth Form Centre this morning.
They show a fourth consecutive year of strong improvement and rank amongst the very best the school has ever achieved. Students made progress well above the national average with 71% achieving 5A* - C grades (63% 5A* - C including English and Maths), almost half getting at least one A grade and 26 students getting at least five A or A* grades. Superb results were achieved in the traditional, academic subjects that make up the English Baccalaureate as well as in our vibrant practical, creative and performing arts departments. Our overall pass rate is 98%.
The overwhelming majority achieved the grades they required to take the next step in their lives, whether that be doing A levels with us at Newent, attending college, taking up an Apprenticeship or entering the world of work.
We are delighted to report that, thanks to the dedication of our students and staff, the school is going from strength to strength with a very pleasing improvement on last year’s results.
We are committed to ensuring that all students achieve their full potential demonstrating high standards in all aspects of their school life from effort, work rate and ethos to conduct, behaviour and good manners. We strive to develop confident, informed and caring young adults who have self-belief and participate in their local, national and international communities; the school provides a wealth of opportunities for students to achieve these aims.
Our open days for new students are on Tuesday 4th October and Thursday 6th October (10am to midday) with our open evening on Thursday 6th October (6.00pm to 8.30pm). However, if you wish to visit the school; please don’t wait, make an early appointment to see this fantastic school in action today.
