Year 11 achievement has been very strong across the whole Year 11 cohort.  All subjects were examined on the new and more challenging GCSE format this year.  We are delighted with the results which testify eloquently to the ability and application of our students and to the skill and dedication of their teachers.  Grade 9 is the highest grade allocated, reserved for the very highest performances.  At Woodford this year no fewer than 32% of entries achieved this accolade.

389 grade 9s were awarded at Woodford.   4 girls achieved straight grades 9s across their ten subjects and 47 had straight 9 – 7 grades (A* / A grades in the old currency).  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 at the top end were depressed nationally this year and this was reflected at Woodford.  Nevertheless girls and their teachers and parents had much to celebrate on results day. 

67% of the 497 exam entries this year were awarded A* to B grades with 9% achieving the top A* grade designed to recognise the highest levels of achievement.  Three girls achieved a clean sweep of A* grades across all their subjects and a total of 42 students had straight A* /A grades.

Woodford students will be taking up places at universities all over Britain in October. 8 girls have places confirmed at Oxford or Cambridge, 23 are beginning medical training, 13 are studying Economics – and so forth. 

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