Cardinal Langley GCSE Results 2017

It was another successful year for students at Cardinal Langley. Students achieved success in a wide range of subjects with over 80% achieving A*-C grades in Art, Biology, Business Studies, Chemistry, French, BTEC Health & Social Care, History, ICT, Physical Education, BTEC Sport, Textiles and BTEC Travel & Tourism. In a year when the headlines are focussed on national changes, it is a fantastic achievement that so many subjects continued to perform significantly above national expectations.

The majority of subjects are still graded this year as A*-C and in these subjects 70% of all grades were A*-C with 20% A*/A and an amazing 99% pass rate overall. This year saw the introduction of the new 1-9 grading system for English and maths which means it isn’t possible to make any direct comparison with previous years but we are very pleased with 63% of the grades being 4 or above which is described by the Government as a new pass.

The Headteacher, Mr Bridson, said ‘Our students have once again achieved some amazing results and thoroughly deserve their success. It is a pity that the national headlines are about Government changes rather than student performance but we are proud of how they have coped with the new curriculum.’

The average grade this year was a B- and reflects the high standard of teaching and learning at the school. Many of our students have exceeded their expectations which demonstrates the strength of the Sixth Form at Cardinal Langley.

It has been an amazing year at the school with our Outstanding judgement from the Diocese of Salford and Ofsted judging us Good in all areas. These results show that the school can compete with the best and we expect numbers to increase further this year given the high success rate that students achieve.

These results are particularly impressive considering the national changes to Sixth Form qualifications and our students have done themselves proud. The future is very positive at Cardinal Langley and we are already looking forward to 2018.’
