GCSE RESULTS: Marriotts School, Stevenage
“A HIGH watermark” was how the headteacher of Marriotts School described this year’s record-breaking GCSE results.
The Stevenage school had their highest ever proportion of students - 83 per cent - achieve five grades at A*-C, a 12 per cent increase on last year.
A total of 45 per cent achieved five A*-C grades including English and maths, six per cent higher than in 2010.
Across the year group, 21 per cent of students achieved five grades at A*-Cs with at least one pass at AS level, with two per cent of students with three AS passes at grades A or B.
Under the school’s curriculum model, a third of Year 11 students had the opportunity to take level 3 courses (A-level and BTEC Level 3).
