Birkdale celebrate one in four results at the highest possible GCSE grade.

Birkdale School students are congratulated on their GCSE successes as one in four results are at grade 9 – the highest possible level. After what had been an incredibly difficult and nervous time for every young person we were immensely proud of our pupils’ positivity and resilience.

With an overall pass rate (grades 4-9) of 100%, 43% of all results were at a grade 9 or 8 (equivalent to A** to A* in previous years) and 88% were at grades 9 to 6 (A** to B).

Four pupils achieved a full set of top grades.

The School continues to excel across the full range of subjects:

  • 8 subjects had over 50% of grades at 9 or 8 – including Chemistry, Computing, D&T (Electronics), Geography, Music, Physics and Religious Studies.
  • Science results were outstanding with 52% of all grades across Chemistry, Physics and Biology at grades 9 or 8.
  • The Art department continued their success with 64% of students receiving grades 9 or 8.
