Wiltshire pupils make the grade

Wiltshire pupils performed above the national average according to the latest figures released today (29 January 2015)

The DfE Key Stage 4 Performance Tables show the number of students achieving five or more A* to C grades at GCSE including English and maths is 56.7 percent - 3.3 percent above the national figure.

Sixth form students have maintained high levels of achievement in A Level exams. Nearly all students in Wiltshire taking A Levels achieved at least one A*- E A level grade, with 94.6 percent and 82.6 percent leaving with two or three A* - E A Level grades respectively.

In A Levels 15.9 percent of students gained at least two As and a B, including two ‘facilitating subjects’ such as maths, English, sciences and languages which help students compete for top university places.

Cllr Laura Mayes, Conservative cabinet member for children services at Wiltshire Council, said: “I’d like to congratulate our hardworking students and the schools involved on these results. Gaining good grades can prove an excellent springboard for future education and careers.”
