School Celebrates best ever GCSE Results

Larkmead School GCSE Results 2017

These results coupled with excellent GCE results represent a significant step forward for the school.

Headline figures for English 9-4 and Maths 9-4 and combined look on or around what we assume will be national average and are a significant improvement on last year. The table below compares this year with last.

On a student level 12 students gained at least 8 x A*-A/ 9-7 which represents 8% of the cohort. This includes one student who gained 8 x A* & 3 x 9!

We are delighted to report that both our A-Level results and our GCSE represent the school’s best ever results both individually and combined. We look forward to building on this success in the coming year.

I would like to congratulate the students, staff and parents for all their hard work and effort in achieving these results.
