Hollygirt School on Elm Avenue in Nottingham saw another year of fantastic GCSE results.
Of all the GCSE papers sat by Year 11 pupils at Hollygirt School,
- 30.3% A* grades
- 45.8% A*-A grades
- 61.5% A*-B grades
- 83.2% A*-C grades
Headmistress, Mrs Pam Hutley, said: “Our small cohort of pupils, some of whom joined the school in Early Years, others who joined in Year 11 following the closure of Dagfa School, have done themselves and the school proud. The pupils whose outstanding A*/A performance is most impressive, do not tell the whole picture of progress and success for all at their relative levels.”
Hollygirt School moved to studying for the international GCSE in English and Maths in order to maintain stability on specifications when the GCSEs were under review. Additionally, because the English iGCSE retains an element of controlled conditioned coursework, this is, they believe, more beneficial for pupils. The English staff are also delighted that they can continue to teach American authors such as John Steinbeck and Arthur Miller on this specification. As such, pupils at Hollygirt School still had their Maths and English grades reported as letters rather than the new 1-9 number system.
