GCSE Results 2018

Keswick School staff and students are very pleased by the 2018 GCSE results. 

“we are very proud of our Year 11 students and are pleased to see such well-deserved results. There are some excellent outcomes for significant numbers of the year group alongside some notable successes for a number of students who have faced some challenging personal circumstances this year. We look forward to welcoming a large number of the students back in September to begin A Level studies and wish those who are going on to other courses or apprenticeships the very best of luck”.

This year there are more changes than ever to the grading system, grade boundaries and performance measures. With the most significant change coming in nearly all GCSEs outside of English and mathematics. Therefore, for both GCSE and A Level results we have agreed with the Cumbria Association of Headteachers (CASH) to “ensure that collectively and individually we have accurate data to share with the media, the public and other stakeholders who are as keen as we are to celebrate the successes of our children and to congratulate all of our school staff. As always there are a number of queries over re-marks and grade boundaries and so, once the official DfE September checking exercise has been completed we will issue our headline data. For now, it is essential we focus on the real stars of today; the students.”
