GCSE Results Update

The Barclay  School is celebrating its best GCSE results for 4 years. Students performed strongly at a time of significant change in the exam system and downward pressure on results. Overall, 53% of students achieved grades A* to C (9 to 4) including English and Maths. 65 % achieved grades 9 to 4 (the old A* to C) in English Language or Literature and 64% grades 9 to 4 in Mathematics. These good results were reflected across the subject range, with particular highlights in  Biology 98% A*-C

Chemistry and Physics 91% A*-C, Religious Education  87% A*-C 43% A*/A, Physical Education 86% A*-C and Geography 31% A*/A.


Overall, students achieved 199 A/A* (or equivalent) grades. Individual students achieved exceptionally well, and in addition to full sets of  As,  William Clarke achieved 5 A*s and a 9,  Joe Newton and Gage Deitsch 3 A*s, Sarangy Sathyan and Alex Haskins 2 A*s.  Fourteen students achieved at least 3 grade As. Four students achieved the top grade 9 in English and two in Maths.

Headteacher Mark Allchorn said:

“These exciting results reflect the hard work and determination of our students and teachers. We knew this year of new exam courses and grading systems would be challenging, but I am delighted that Barclay students have bucked the trend and produced such fine results. The School looks forward to welcoming many back to our Sixth Form.”


A Level Results Update

Students Have Achieved 100% A* and A  In A-Level Further Maths.

The Barclay School is celebrating the best A level results for three years, showing significant improvement across all key performance indicators.

The overall pass rate for A level was 95%, with 70% achieving grades A* to C and 45% A* to B. Almost all students were thus able to access their choices for university.

This is particularly good news in the light of the national context of new A level courses and the focus on final exam performance.

There were a number of individual notable successes with Jordan Barber achieving A*AA to read Astrophysics. Jade Burroughes A*A* A* to read History, Lucy Brinkley ABB to read Politics, Tom Davies A*AB to read Maths. Ethan Murrill A*AA to read Engineering, Bethany Nobbs A*A* B to read Psychology, Charlie Powell A*A*B to read Aerospace Engineering, Caitlin Sharp A*BB to read English.

Notably, the Maths department are  celebrating 100% A* and A results for Further Maths.

Headteacher Mark Allchorn said:

“I’m delighted with the well earned success of all students at Barclay School. The individual results mean that students can move confidently to  the next stage of their career. I’m particularly proud that students have worked hard with the staff at Barclay to make the very most of all their opportunities in what has been a very challenging year.”

These results are the first national benchmark of Barclay’s journey back to good. We look forward to further developing the academic success of our sixth form students in a new Sixth Form Centre to be opened in 2018.
