Every year we celebrate the academic success of our pupils, whatever that represents for the individual. For some it will be securing an Oxbridge or Ivy League university place or gaining straight A* grades at GCSE. For others it will be achieving good pass grades in all of their subjects.
We expect the very highest standards from all of our pupils, regardless of their ability. Indeed for some, their real achievement is measured through the progress made over their years studying with us. Our community celebrates all successes equally, if pupils have fulfilled their potential.
In 2017, against a national backdrop of examination reform and more rigorous standards, the School was delighted that 25% of all GCSE grades received by our pupils were A* (compared to a national figure of 12%), 50% of all grades were at A* or A (compared to 26% nationally) and 75% were at A*- B (compared to 45% nationally). A* was the most common grade for Worth pupils. Click here for an easy-to-view breakdown of figures.
Students studying the International Baccalaureate attained an average score of 35.7 points (compared to 30.2 globally) and there were similarly impressive results at A Level. The combined grades of all students, IB and A Level, represented an A*- B pass rate of 71%. On top of this success, of the 13 students who completed an EPQ (Extended Project Qualification) 94% achieved an A* or A grade.
Three A Level students took up places at Oxford and another earned a place at Cambridge. Three other students went on to study Medicine and over 50% were admitted to Russell Group universities.
One IB student, Patryk Kulik, was awarded 45 points – the maximum possible. This staggering result is equivalent to five A* grades at A level. Only 0.3% of students globally achieve this standard. Twenty per cent of Worth candidates achieved 40 or more points and 40% achieved 38 or more (38 points is the equivalent to five A grades at A level).
Amongst the many success stories, Kasen Aboitiz will take up a place at Brown University – an Ivy League Institution in the US. The acceptance rate at Brown was just 8% this year.
