Loughborough Grammar School boys are celebrating the School’s best set of GCSE grades for 6 years. It was difficult for pupils and teachers alike to know what to expect as the new numerical grades were awarded for the first time in many subjects. However, as envelopes were opened and thrown into the air in delight, it was clear that performance had been outstanding across the curriculum. 65% of results were graded 7-9 (the equivalent of A*/A) with 86 of the 142 pupils achieving these top grades in at least 5 subjects.
The national press had warned that very few candidates would achieve top grades across the board under the new system, but 5 boys managed this incredible feat. In addition, no fewer than 40 boys achieved at least seven grades of 8 or 9.
A fantastic achievement for all of Year 11!
