GCSE Results 2014
Well done to all Commonweal students
Huge congratulations to Year 11 2014 for achieving excellent exam results. Results which were greatly deserved and are a testament to their hard work, dedication and ability. Thanks must go to the student’s superb teachers and wonderfully supportive parents and carers.
Overall 64% of Year 11 students recorded 5 A* - C grades including Maths and English. This is an improvement on 2013 and comes despite numerous new challenges including the move to terminal assessment and the mid-course changes imposed in some subjects. Results were generally very positive across the range of subjects. However results in the key subjects of Maths and English deserve a special mention. 79% of students achieved a C grade or higher in Maths and 75% in English. These figures are both significantly higher than the national average. The English results come despite the fall in English grades nationally.
