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 2018, Worth celebrated the best results the School has ever achieved since GCSEs were introduced in 1988. These strong results were continued in 2019, when 50% of all results were at 7 to 9 (formerly A* or A), with a third of all results at 8 to 9 (formerly A*). Over 10% of the cohort achieved straight 8 to 9 grades, amassing an impressive 193 of these top results between them. One pupil achieved 9 in all of her subjects. Just under 50% of pupils achieved five or more 7 to 9 grades (formerly A*-A).
Pupils performed particularly strongly in the Sciences, with 87% of all results in Chemistry at grades 8 or 9, 81% in Biology and 80% in Physics.
IB students achieved an average of 34.5 points, compared to a world average of 30 points. Almost two thirds of all A Level results were at A*-B, against the backdrop of a national dip in the number of students achieving the top grades.
The wide range of university courses accepted reflects the breadth of our students' interests and talents, among them Actuarial Science, Civil Engineering, English Literature with Creative Writing, European Politics, Film-making, Fine Arts, Geography, Law, Marine Biology, Mechanical Engineering, Medicine, Neuroscience, Pharmacy, Philosophy, Property Management, Psychology, Photography.
In 2018, one student took up a prestigious degree apprenticeship with Rolls-Royce in the autumn.
