GCSE Results

Year 11 achievement has been strong across the whole Year 11 cohort.  In this era of curriculum  change we are particularly pleased with the outstanding achievement of girls in the new GCSE examinations.  Grade 9 is the highest grade allocated, reserved for the very highest performances.  Across the three new specifications (English, English Literature and Mathematics) no fewer than 115 grade 9s were awarded at Woodford.  Eight girls achieved straight A* (including equivalents) across their ten subjects and forty had straight A* / A grades.  Results in Triple Science, for which the whole cohort is entered, were impressive and indeed performance across the whole curriculum provided plenty to celebrate

A-Level results

76% of the 540 exam entries this year were awarded A* to B grades with 16% achieving the top A* grade designed to recognise the highest levels of achievement.  Six girls achieved a clean sweep of A* grades across all their subjects and a total of 45 students had straight A* / A grades.

Woodford students will be taking up places at universities all over Britain in October.  5 girls have places confirmed at Oxford or Cambridge and to date 23 places for medicine and dentistry have been secured. 

We congratulate every one of our A-Level candidates.  We are very proud of their achievements.
