GCSE Results 2015
A fantastic 95% per cent of Year 11 pupils at Hydesville Tower School have achieved five or more A*-C GCSE grades.
A total of 59% of all our results are A*-B, compared to 43% nationally, and 85% of our pupils gained at least five A*-C grades including English and Maths. Our overall pass rate (A*-E) is 99%.
Headmaster Mr McGinnes said: “Many congratulations to the class of 2015. I am delighted that once again our pupils have achieved the results they deserve; there really is no substitute for hard work and perseverance.”
It is another great year of exam results for the school where pupils are taught their GCSE subjects in classes of around a dozen or fewer children. Highlights include Rameez Ali who is celebrating two A*s and seven A grades and Marianne Hughes who surpassed her baseline Year 7 forecast by a huge margin across the board. Marianne exemplifies the school’s ability to add value to pupil progress.
This year’s results are the best to date in terms of pupils’ exceeding the baseline predictions made in Year 7. This is a national measure to determine the difference a school makes to each child’s progress and attainment. Last year Hydesville was ranked within the top 3% of senior schools based on its performance in this key area.
Miss K Nijjar, Deputy Head (Head of Senior), added: “Thank you to my team of very dedicated teachers and to the parents of Year 11 for their invaluable support throughout the GCSE course.”
