GCSE Examination Results 2019
Key Stage 4 (GCSEs and equivalent)
Verulam pupils surpassed their targets this year and achieved a predicted Progress 8 score of + 0.238 meaning that on average they achieved nearly half a grade higher than boys nationally in 2018 (Boys national Progress 8 Score 2018 -0.25). Our Attainment 8 score of 54.34, is higher than both the national average of 46.5, and the Hertfordshire local authority average of 51.
John Tromans, Head of Year 11, congratulated all the boys on their impressive results and was particularly pleased with strong results in English, Maths, Technology, Business and Sport.
“I am delighted with our haul of 67 Level 9 grades – these really show how hard our boys have worked.”
Head of English, Phyllis Avery, was delighted by Year 10 pupils who sat their GCSE English Literature examination a year early with a third of pupils achieving the highest 7 to 9 grades.
Note: A standard pass is a grade A* to C or 9 to 4. A strong pass is a grade 9 to 5 / A* to B
