The Year 11 pupils who took GCSEs at Worth school in 2012 produced the best percentage of A* grades ever achieved at the school. These results meant that the School had an overall pass rate of 54% at A*- A grades at GCSE level.
Year 13 students who left Worth School last year studying the IB attained an average score of 37 points. This is equivalent to receiving 3 A*s at A Level. The average score of 37 achieved is particularly impressive as the worldwide average currently stands at 29.6.
The good news continued at A Level with 16 students achieving a minimum of 3 A* or A grades. The combined grades of all 2012 IB and A Level students represent an A*- B pass rate of 75% and Worth School had an overall pass rate of 98%.
The 2012 leavers did brilliantly in securing places at their first-choice universities with 77% of 2012 leavers gaining places at the top 43 universities in the UK, plus a number of leavers choosing to go to top universities abroad. 2012 leavers have now completed their first year in their chosen courses; these being as diverse as Psychology at Exeter, Law at Warwick, Classics at Edinburgh, Maths at Oxford, Geography at Manchester, Biology at Bath and Engineering at Bristol.
This year’s A-Level students will receive their results on 15th August so we wish all of them luck. For those who were in the same situation 12 months ago – and no doubt remember it vividly – we hope that they are pursuing their current students with enthusiasm and doing us proud as Worthians.
