GCSE/BTEC Results 2022
GCSE/BTEC Results 2022
The Courtyard is delighted to announce another set of fantastic GCSE/BTEC results.
80% of pupils have achieved the benchmark 4+ (the old C grade) in their GCSE exams, a figure in line with the results from July 2019, the last time students sat public examinations. Over 70% have secured the challenging 5+ grade. Finally, we are incredibly proud of our 20% of students who achieved grades 8-9 in their subjects. This is the highest percentage of students to achieve at this level here at the Courtyard.
Here at the Courtyard we also recognise BTEC Level 2 achievements, the equivalent of GCSEs. Students are challenged with completing coursework over a two year period and then sitting a final exam to showcase their deeper understanding of the subject. We are delighted to share the news that 100% of students achieved Level 2 merit or pass grades in BTEC Art & Design, BTEC Hospitality, BTEC Workskills and BTEC Home Cooking. Students also work towards Level 1 qualifications in these subjects as a stepping stone to Level 2 and the students achieved 100% success here also.
There were so many individual successes that we have selected just a few to highlight:
Congratulations to Liz who achieved the Courtyard's first ever Grade 9 result in GCSE English Literature and Jack who achieved Grade 8 in GCSE English Language.
Congratulations to Fred who achieved Grade 6 in GCSE English Literature and Grade 5 in GCSE Mathematics.
Congratulations to Henry who achieved Grade 4 in Mathematics and is going onto study a Foundation Degree in Music at Trinity College.
Congratulations to Dorian who achieved Grade 5 in Mathematics and is joining the Courtyard's 6th form to add to his academic achievement.
Headteacher, Deborah Shepherd, said
'I could not be more proud of the Class of 2022. The past 2.5 years have brought significant disruption to all our lives and presented challenging circumstances which has made attending school and studying towards qualifications extremely difficult for our Courtyard students. The students have developed increased resilience and determination in order to overcome these challenges and achieve this success. They are role models for us all and will be held in the high accolade by Courtyard students who supersede them.
I am also incredibly thankful to the dedicated staff team and supportive parents who have supported our students to achieve their success.
Eliot Brooks, Chair of Governors, said ‘The Governors are very proud of the students’ achievements. They continue to inspire us to work together to provide an outstanding educational provision for current and future students.'
