Exam Results

GCSE Results 2019

Barton Court is celebrating another excellent set of GCSE results this year. The students at Barton Court are just amazing and this is testament to the hard work and commitment of both our students and staff. Students achieved 38% 9-7 grades (A**/A*/A grades), with 20% of students achieving 8 or more 9-7 grades (A**/A*/A) and 40% of students achieving 5 or more 9 – 7 grades (A**/A*/A).

98% of students achieved 5 A*-C grades including both English and Maths at grade 4 or higher and 67% achieved the English Baccalaureate.

Mr Macaulay, Headteacher commented:

“I am really delighted for all our students who have worked so hard to achieve these outstanding results. Students this year had to cope with demands of new tougher GCSEs in all subjects and the majority of our students also gained the demanding English Baccalaureate. Despite this, they have excelled and should be justly proud. It was fantastic to see so many pleased and excited young faces collect their results this morning, we look forward to welcoming the majority of them back to Barton Court in September for another 2 years of successful study.”

The school is delighted with some notable achievements for individual students with 16 students (13%) achieving an amazing 10 or more straight 9 – 7 (A**/A*/A) grades and within this group 2 star students who achieved 7 GCSEs at the very top grade, grade 9, each. Only the top 3% of students nationally in each subject achieve a grade 9. There are too many students to mention individually!

“The School would like to thank all staff for their hard work and all parents and Governors for their continued support without which such excellent results and student achievement would not be possible.”

Mr Macaulay, Headteacher commented:

“We are delighted by these results.

These results are an improvement from last year and usually place the School in the Top 100 state schools in the country for Post-16 Education (Source: The Times). These results will help to transform the lives of our students and allow them to attend some of the most prestigious universities in the UK and overseas. I congratulate them for their excellent efforts and also thank the staff for their hard work over the last two years.”
