GCSE Success
The Kibworth School’s 2019 GCSE results confirm the school’s continued strong academic performance. Over 84% of all students gained a 4+ GCSE for combined English and Maths, and 57% achieved 5+ in both subjects. A third of our students achieved a grade 7 or higher in English (equivalent to a legacy grade A or higher), and 18% of students secured a grade 7 or higher in Maths.

In Science, despite national changes to the qualification, 77% of our students achieved a grade 4 or higher in at least two subjects. 38% of students achieved a grade 7 in at least one subject; a phenomenal achievement. Even more impressive is that one in five of our students achieved a grade 8, and one in ten of our students secured top grade 9s.

Staff are delighted that students of all abilities, regardless of their starting point, have made incredible progress since Year 7. Emma Merry, Headteacher, said,

We are immensely proud of our students. They have taken all the changes to GCSE asessments in their stride, studied hard and have done incredibly well. We wish them every success in their next adventure.
