Regarding not releasing overall results, a statement issued on behalf of the Stevenage secondary schools headteachers said: “This year there have been many changes in how students in Year 11 are assessed in their GCSE examinations.
“For English and maths, grades have moved from A*-G to 9-1. Examinations have become more rigorous and controlled assessment is no longer part of the English exam.

“This summer is the first time students sat the new English and maths GCSE. Throughout the year schools across the country have struggled to predict and assess what students will achieve as no grade boundaries were in place. The new system has led to confusion for students, parents and schools alike.
“With these national changes, year-on-year comparisons of attainment are not appropriate and headline progress measures will be unavailable until the official performance tables are released.
“As headteachers in Stevenage, we continue to work hard in our own schools and together as a family of schools, to raise achievement and improve the life chances of every single student in our care. This year we want to celebrate the individual success of each and every student.”
