Didcot Girls' School celebrates outstanding GCSE results!

Didcot Girls’ School is celebrating another year of excellent GCSE results for our hard-working and committed students.  

Overall, 2019 results again place us in the top 3% of schools nationally with a Progress 8 score of 0.71. This is the government's key measure of school performance as it measures the progress all students make from starting in Year 7 to taking exams in Year 11.

91% of students achieved Grade 4 and above in English and 86% achieved Grade 4 and above in Maths. At Grade 5 and above, students did brilliantly with 82% successful in English and 70% in Maths. At the very top grades, 28% of all grades in English and 30% in Maths were 7 or above, with 11% grades 8-9 in English and 19% in Maths.  

Results at the highest levels are similarly excellent across all other subjects with 35% of all grades at 7-9 and 18% at grades 8 or 9. 24 students achieved 6 or more grades 8 or 9. 

The attainment and progress of all students at GCSE is equally impressive with an overall pass rate of 98% of students achieving at least 5 GCSE passes.
