PLANTSBROOK SCHOOL CELEBRATING GCSE SUCCESS
After last week’s excellent A Level results, Plantsbrook students are today celebrating GCSE success. Changes to the exam system nationally make comparisons difficult with previous years, but around 70% of this year’s students have still achieved the headline measure of 5 or more GCSE top grades, including English and Mathematics.
Mathematics results were particularly strong with 87% of students achieving A* to C grades, in spite of the changes. These are the best Mathematics results the school has ever seen.
We are really proud of our youngsters who have done so well this year. They have risen to the challenges of so many changes to the exam system and have worked hard to get the results they deserved.
Thanks to Plantsbrook staff and families too, who have supported and helped them every step of the way.
Tracy Campbell, Headteacher
EXCELLENT A-LEVEL RESULTS AGAIN AT PLANTSBROOK

The total point score is 856, well above the national average and the average point score per entry is 209.
Very high grades were achieved by many students with 66% getting at least one A* - B.
We are really proud of our students who have achieved brilliant results again this year. Their hard work has really paid off.
In spite of all the changes to the exams system, nationally, they have risen to the challenge and thoroughly deserve their success. Thanks to our amazing staff for their hard work and to our supportive parents who have helped them along the way.
