GCSE Results 2019

Overall the number of students securing a 4 or above in English and maths nearly doubled, jumping from 30% in 2018 to 59% in 2019. Nearly a quarter of all exams sat achieved an A* or A, or equivalent, and Engineering students secured results that are at least a grade higher than the national average in the subject.

In addition, results in science, English and computing all saw significant improvements, and the progress made by students in maths, which has a predicted Progress 8 score of nearly +0.7, is likely to be amongst the best progress scores for the subject in the country.

Lisa Jepson, Consultant Principal, “These results on their own would be very positive, but in the context that they were achieved they are fantastic.

“There can be no denying that we have had a difficult twelve months. Managing the school through to its closure has come with its own set of challenges. Yet, the students and staff have never lost sight of the fact of why we were here – and that was to get the very best outcomes for the Class of 2019.”

One such student, Catherine Roper, achieved four 9s, two Distinction*s, two 8s and a 7.

“I am so relieved and delighted. It was really hard working with the knowledge that the school was going to close and hard to keep a focus of purpose, but I want to thank all the staff for their help in making it all worthwhile and I am really pleased to have  gained these results.

Ms Jepson added: “I would like to applaud the commitment and talents of our students and the efforts and dedication of our staff. Together they have ensured that we can leave UTC@harbourside with a sense of pride and achievement for all that has been accomplished over the last 12 months.”
