Students at Patchway Community School are celebrating a “well-deserved” set of GCSE examination results, despite experiencing several years of disruption due to the Covid-19 pandemic.

The proportion of students achieving both English and Mathematics at Grade 4 or above was 42 percent (compared to 40 percent in 2019), while Grades 7 to 9 were recorded across a wide range of subjects.

A spokesperson for the school said:

“All of us at Patchway Community School are thrilled that learners will be celebrating a well-deserved set of GCSE achievements.”

“Considering this is the first year following the pandemic where all subjects have examined on all of the content in the GCSE specifications again, learners have coped magnificently.”

“There have been some amazing individual performances with almost all of our students gaining what they needed, to be able to go onto either post 16 studies or apprenticeships/training. There have been some really strong outcomes, particularly in the separate Sciences, Photography, and Health & Social Care. We have also seen significant improvements in the outcomes for learners in Mathematics and Hospitality & Catering.”
