2019 LEVEL 2 (GCSE) PERFORMANCE
100% achieved 5 GCSE pass grades, including English and Maths
81% achieved 5+ A*-C grades
67% achieved 5+ A* – C grades including English & Maths
This year we have achieved 100% pass rate at the 5 GCSE, including English and Maths boundary. The number of students achieving 5 A*- C (or equivalent in the new grading structure of five passes at grade 9 to 4) was 81%. 11% of all the grades gained are in the highest grade range.
At De La Salle we take boys of all abilities. As such our results have a much wider spectrum of ability being shown than the schools we are most often compared to.
To allow ease of comparison between the old and the new GCSE grading system an A* grade is equivalent to a new grade 8 and a C grade is equivalent to a new grade 4.
2019 LEVEL 3 (A level & BTEC) PERFORMANCE
19% were pass grades at A* or A and (Distinction* or Distinction at BTEC)
70% were pass grades at A* to C and (D*, D and Merit at BTEC)
98% were pass grades at A* to E and (D*, D, M and Pass at BTEC)
I am pleased with the performance of the boys this year. We are the only boys sixth form that offers a range of Level 3 qualifications, that is A level, BTEC and TECH level qualifications. 19% of all the grades gained are in the highest grade range. In our other two statistics overall 98% of examinations taken were pass grades and 70% were C/MERIT of higher.
