Congratulations to all students in Year 11 for achieving outstanding results at GCSE.
Despite the removal of Speaking and Listening marks in English, 72% of pupils
gained A*–C grade passes in that subject (up from 69% in 2013); in mathematics 74% achieved this outcome (75% in 2013). 47% of students achieved 1 or more A*/A grades. Overall, 61% of students at the College gained 5 or more A*C grades including English and mathematics, despite strict new rules on counting vocational qualification equivalences.
The average points score per entry in 2014 is 42.4 (42.0 in 2013), representing further continued improvement in achievement in each entry overall.
Ten students achieved A* or A grades (or equivalent) in eight or more GCSE subjects and 47% of students in the year group achieved 1 or more A*/A grade.
Naturally, students receiving these results, in the company of Border TV were delighted, as were the staff who taught them.
The number of applications for Sixth Form courses at Ullswater Community College is at a record high, with an expected 170 applications to continue into Sixth Form studies at the College in September.
