Celebrating GCSE Results 2022

Our Year 11s have done it again!

Queen’s College does it again!

Following last week’s impressive A Level results, Queen’s College is delighted that the academic strength of the college is highlighted again this week, with GCSE pupils celebrating a further impressive set of results.

This year we have had some incredible results with the percentage of pupils achieving grades 9-7 significantly higher than 2019 when results were last sat. There were also large increases in the percentage of 9-7 grades in all separate sciences compared to 2019. This reflects the positive curriculum change which enabled more teaching time for pupils who selected this as an option.

Additionally, our pupils recieved fantastic English results with 100% of pupils being awarded a Grade 4 or above. 

Head of Faculty for English & Drama, Mrs Miriam Litton is delighted: “I have immensely enjoyed working with this lively and engaged cohort who have triumphed in adversity. As a department we have worked very closely with this group to ensure there were no knowledge or skills gaps and the hard work has really paid off. It has been a pleasure to see them get the results they truly deserve”

Head of College, Julian Noad, said:

"Yet again, our pupils give me cause to feel extremely proud of team Queen’s. All of our GCSE pupils should feel very proud of these results and their dedicated teachers should rightly take some of the credit for the incredible effort involved in encouraging and supporting our exam-takers.  

I am tremendously pleased with this year’s academic success and grateful to my colleagues for their commitment to excellence.  It is especially pleasing that so many of our GCSE pupils will return to Queen’s in September to continue their studies in our wonderful Sixth Form.  Joining them this year are more new Year 12/Sixth Form starters than we have had in many many years and I’m looking forward to working with them all in just a couple of weeks."
