St. Paul’s pupils celebrate their IGCSE results

After celebrating our latest and brilliant IB results last month, today, St. Paul’s new 6th form pupils received their IGCSE results, together with thousands of pupils around the world.

Last week, thousands of pupils around the world are celebrating their success as they receive their Cambridge IGCSE results. At St. Paul’s, the new Lower 6 pupils are celebrating some of the best numbers in the last five years, with around 62% of our pupils’ grades being A*-A, and 32% of our grades being A*. Overall, 88% of the grades are A*-B, which is our best result in more than seven years. This is a remarkable achievement and every pupil is to be congratulated on their individual successes!

It has been a very demanding year for pupils and all have worked incredibly hard to overcome the many challenges of the pandemic, in order to gain their qualifications and move forward with their next educational steps.

IGCSEs are the international counterpart to the British GCSE examinations, which are undertaken by almost every pupil in the UK. Usually, they are run as externally set, assessed and moderated examinations but this year the grades have been based on pupil progress and evidence collated by teachers. Our pupils study a broad and balanced curriculum including the arts, sciences, humanities, maths, and languages, and they generally sit 9 to 11 subjects. Doing well in examinations is not everything, but these results open doors for our pupils for the future. It will lead them, we know, to great success in their IB diploma programme studies in the final two years of school, and to great university offers in the future. Well done everyone!
