GCSE results


Wyvern students and staff are celebrating another exceptionally strong set of GCSE
examination results. Although the Department for Education has yet to officially
confirm national data for the 2023 exams, it is clear that this year Wyvern students
have attained higher grades and made more progress from their starting points than
students have nationally.

  • English grades 4 - 9 80%, grades 5 - 9 62%, grades 7 - 9  20%

  • Maths grades 4 - 9 82%, grades 5 - 9 57%, grades 7 - 9 21%

  • 2 x Science GCSEs 80% grades 4 - 9,  grades 5 - 9 58%

Pass rates for good grades (4-9) and strong grades (5-9) continue to be high and our
performance was especially strong in the key subjects which make up the
governments gold standard E-bacc curriculum:

  • English – 80% grade 4-9

  • Maths – 82% grade 4-9

  • Science – 80% grade 4-9 in two sciences

  • History – 75% grade 4-9

  • Geography – 76% grade 4-9

  • German – 79% grade 4-9

  • Spanish - 95% grade 4-9

47% of our students completed the suite of GCSEs which make up the E-Bacc and
of these 78% successfully secured the pass grade.

70% of students successfully passed 5 GCSE’s, including English and Maths, which
is a very strong performance when compared to historical outcomes.

In addition to strong outcomes in our core subjects we have once again achieved
excellent results in the creative subjects; Art & Photography, Drama, Music and
Dance. Wyvern has a tradition of excellence in the creative and performing arts and
students have once again performed very well in them.

Although the official government comparison of schools’ performance has yet to be
published, an analysis of results undertaken by the company SISRA, based on
271,985 students from 1458 schools, shows that at Wyvern students made more
progress from their starting points (Year 6 SATs results) than students did nationally.
In other words, their grades exceeded those gained by students in other schools with
the same starting points. Progress measures were once again especially strong for
the EBacc suite of subjects where SISRA projects the progress 8 score to be +0.2. It
is especially strong in the EBacc courses (+0.5). This means 5 in very 10 students
made a whole grade’s progress more than the national average. Once the
department for education has published its official data, we will update our website
to show these performance measures.
