Wyvern is celebrating another high attaining year in terms of its GCSE results, with 81% of its leavers achieving the new Grades 4 to 9 in English, and exactly the same percentage (81%) achieving 4 to 9 in Mathematics. In terms of overlap between the two, provisionally 74% of the students crossed this threshold in both English and Mathematics.


Although we are not in a position to calculate the relatively new ‘Progress 8’ score at this stage (the national schools’ performance measure which compares the students’ progress from their secondary school starting points as 11-year olds against their peers nationally within a prescribed curriculum), the high attainment right across the curriculum augurs well for a very positive score against this progress measure.


Headteacher, Mr Alan Newton, said, “As always, I credit the expertise, experience and diligence of the teaching and support staff. The high percentages of students achieving the very top grades, including the exceptional new Grade 9 in Maths & English, are testimony to an outstanding teaching input. But also the work ethic and aspirations of the students have ensured that they have made the most of everything we have provided, from on-line learning to Saturday schools. The vast majority of students have achieved ‘personal bests’ in their GCSEs, which speaks volumes about Wyvern as a learning community.”


He went on to express his profound satisfaction with high achievement across a traditional, broad academic curriculum: e.g. subjects such as Additional Science (81% A*-C), Additional Further Science (96%) and Computing (90%), as well as Music (96%) and Drama (81%).


Many of Wyvern’s grades were the top grades of A* or A, e.g. History (40% A*/A), once again demonstrating the College’s ability to establish and meet the highest expectations of its students.


Wyvern is proud of its distinguished history as a comprehensive school and the high attainment of the vast majority of students combined with high levels of progress of all the young people of the Class of 2017 is a mark of the College’s consistency over many years.
