GCSE Results 2018
23rd August 2018
Shell 2018 have faced up to a difficult year in the education system and have come through with flying colours. They have had to contend with a great deal of uncertainty in the media about the linear examinations they have sat and this has not always filled them with confidence. We would like to pay tribute to their resilience in the face of negative discussion of difficulty levels and congratulate them wholeheartedly to their achievements which are individually and collectively impressive. With 9% grade 9 and 20% Grades 8 and 9 alongside 40% Grade A* in the non-reformed qualifications, these results are testament to the girls’ hard work and determination to succeed and the governors and staff are delighted with Shell 2018. This is backed up with 60% A*A and 37% Grades 7-9 and so we wish the girls every success in the next phase of their education and they will approach this with the firm knowledge that they are much better than they had dreaded and considerably better than many had dared to dream.
Mrs Johnson, the Head, said: “I am immensely proud of the grit demonstrated by these girls and know that they have built up their performances over their time at Wychwood. They have not always believed us when we explained what they could do but I hope they will all be celebrating their successes today.”
