Our Year 11 students have done extraordinarily well in the GCSE examinations this year.
After last year’s success, the school’s results have again risen sharply, by over 20%. Stoke students benefit from small class sizes and of the 19 students in Year 11, 89% of pupils achieved 5 A*-C, with 79% gaining these grades including English and Maths*.
We are delighted for the students who worked consistently hard to achieve their grades. They were an excellent year group who encouraged each other. They received additional individual support from teaching staff as well as from LDU staff when it was needed. They often used social media too, to help each other in their homework and revision. Their achievements are a testament to their commitment and to that of staff and parents.
At Stoke College we are proudly non-selective and close working relationships with staff allow all pupils to make strong progress. Our small class sizes benefit pupils of all abilities and we are particularly pleased to see how pupils across the academic spectrum have exceeded national expectations.
We look forward to many generations of students succeeding at Stoke, not just at GCSE but also at A level, as we open our new sixth form in September.
(* English and Maths are now graded 9 to 1, with a grade 4 being the equivalent of a C grade.)
