Headteacher Rae Potter said:

“I would like to congratulate all our students. Staff have done a great job of making sure students met the challenge of the new GCSEs and I am pleased with the results. This year students were faced with more difficult content, more examinations and a tightly packed schedule of examinations during some of the hottest days of the summer when many of our girls were also fasting. I am very proud of their achievements.”

Sarah Bonnell 2016 results

We are very pleased with the school’s examination results for 2016.

As a school serving our diverse local community, we are committed to developing confident, rounded young women with a desire to learn, with enquiring and discriminating minds, and above all high aspirations for themselves and we work hard to ensure that students of all academic abilities thrive and flourish.

These results reflect the hard work and motivation of our girls and staff, along with the support of parents and governors. At GCSE level the number of pupils who gained at least 5+ A* - C grades was 74%, with 65% gaining 5+ A*-C grades including English and Mathematics. We continue to aim for excellence for all of our students and continue our improvement journey.

Furthermore, 97% of students gained at least 5 A* - G grades.

We were also above the national expectation (A*-C) in 24 subjects and a further 21 subjects at A*-A. This indicates the depth of achievement across the subjects at Sarah Bonnell. Whilst academic achievement will always be at the heart of what we do, we will continue to ensure our students are able to make an active and positive contribution to society and follow the student motto:

‘Be Proud. Aim high. Work hard. Be nice. No excuses.’

We are extremely proud of what the class of 2016 has achieved and are looking forward to the year ahead and continuing to improve in all we do.
