GCSE Results 2019
Excellence for All
Huge congratulations are due to our Year 11 students whose hard work and dedication has resulted in a fantastic set of GCSE results.
It is always unfair to single out individuals but we would like to congratulate Reuben Rackham, Danny Kuhrt and Erin Ramsden who each achieved nine grade 9 GCSES, Maryam Sohail who achieved eight grade 9s, Shankaroon Abdulaahi who achieved four of these as well as Junior Brito, Deborah Acheampong and Natnael Dawit who each achieved three grade nines amongst their results. The list goes on and we are conscious that there are so many students who deserve mention here.
Dunraven is also very proud of the achievements of our students as a fully comprehensive school. Our headline figures follow below.
Students achieving 9-5 in English and Maths: 52%
Students achieving 9-4 in English and Maths: 75%
Students achieving 9-5 in the English Baccalaureate: 23%
Students achieving 9-4 in the English Baccalaureate: 36%
The English and Maths figures are the best yet for Dunraven under the new GCSE system and all of these figures are above National Averages. They are a credit to the efforts of an extremely hard-working group of students who have been exceptionally well supported by their teachers and families.
This success is evident across our broad curriculum. For example, over half the students studying Biology, Chemistry, Physics and Dance achieving a grade 7 or above in these subjects. At least one in four students studying History, Drama, DT, French or Spanish achieved a grade 7 or above. At least 4 out of 5 students studying Art, Computer Science or RE achieved a grade 4 or above. Vocational qualifications performed extremely well with over half of all entrants in BTEC Business or Sports Studies achieving starred distinctions.
Days like today are for celebrating. They are also a time to say thank you to all our teachers and especially young people for all of the effort, encouragement and difficult moments along the way that have added up to this success. Whether returning to our Sixth Form or taking next steps elsewhere, we hope every Year 11 student feels proud and wish them the very best for what comes next.
