Results and Performance Tables
Students and staff at Saint Paul’s have good reason to celebrate their latest GCSE results. The school saw Year 11 achieve some of the school’s best ever results with a number of students achieving the top grades in the country. We are extremely proud of our school’s achievements. Below is a summary of our results and you can link through to our official DFE published results using the link below:
Following on from last year’s changes to the examination system in English, English Literature and Mathematics, students received GCSEs graded on a new scale of 9 -1, with 9 the highest grade, in reformed and more challenging qualifications.
Despite the increased challenges, 55% of Saint Paul’s pupils achieved a Grade 4 or better in English and Mathematics. In total 56% of all pupils at Saint Paul’s achieved a grade 5 or better in English and 40% in Mathematics with more than a third of all pupils achieving a grade 5 or better in both English and Mathematics. These results are all a significant improvement on last’s year’s results.

“Congratulations to all our Year 11 students who have worked extraordinarily hard, every day, to make their success a reality. These results are a testament to the incredible young people of Saint Paul’s. Whilst much emphasis is placed on the performance of English and Mathematics, there were also some extraordinary results in non-core subjects. My thanks go to all staff for their hard work and on-going commitment and to the parents of our children for their support.”
