Thomas Keble GCSE Results 2016

Thomas Keble Students Celebrate High Achieving GCSE Results!  

Students, staff and parents at Thomas Keble School, in Eastcombe, are celebrating an excellent set of results in 2016 with 63% of students achieving 5 or more GCSEs including English and Maths with early analysis indicating an exceptionally strong progress / value added score. This is the new benchmark for national performance.  Headteacher Julia Maunder was delighted. “We take great pride in being an inclusive comprehensive school and to see students across the full ability range achieve so well is testament to the commitment of our school community in supporting all students to achieve more than they ever thought possible.  The early indications are that our class of 2016 have performed significantly above the level expected of them based on national data and we are incredibly proud of the way our students have risen to the challenges presented.  It is particularly pleasing to note that at a time when it is becoming harder to achieve the very highest grades, 26% of our students exceeded the government benchmark of 3 or more A*/A grades.”

From 2016, the main government performance measure used to assess a school’s effectiveness moves to a progress based measure, rather than the 5 A-C including English and Maths.  The final figure will not be known until the government releases further data in late September but early indications suggest Thomas Keble has performed extremely well and significantly above national levels.

Students have continued to do well across a full range of subject areas.  Both English and Maths have achieved well above the national level of expected progress with 65% of the 2016 cohort achieving a C or above in both English and Maths GCSEs.  71% of students achieved 5 or more A*-C grades with 63% achieving 5 or more A*-C grades including English and Maths.

Julia Maunder, Headteacher said “My congratulations go to all our students who have earned such excellent results this year.  Our principle of inclusion at Thomas Keble has ensured that all students, regardless of ability, have received widespread and comprehensive support to stretch and challenge their expectations in order to achieve their very best. This was further highlighted in a recent ‘Real Schools Guide’ which was published by Trinity Mirror Data group which placed Thomas Keble as the second highest performing comprehensive school in Gloucestershire according to comparisons across 25 different performance measures including attainment and value added results.   I would also like to acknowledge the hard work of staff and parents in supporting our young people throughout their time with us.”
