2016 GCSE Results Success

This week our Year 11 students received their much-anticipated examination results. 

We are pleased to announce that, once again, students at Cardinal Hume have earned excellent grades. Their hard work and determination has been justly rewarded and we wish this group the very best of luck in the next stages of their education. 
It is excellent to see a further increase in the proportion of candidates securing good grades in both English and Mathematics, as well as greater numbers of students attaining 8 or more GCSEs at A and A*.
Headline Figures
Students achieving A*-C in English and Mathematics: 81% 
Students achieving A*-C in English: 94% 
Students achieving A*-C in Mathematics: 82% 
Students awarded the English Baccalaureate: 40%*
Progress 8 
Progress 8 is the new system used to measure the progress students make during their time in secondary school. Accredited scores will be provided for all schools later this term. 
Based on school calculations, we are estimating that we will have an extremely healthy figure of +0.38. In simple terms, this means that students at Cardinal Hume School achieve – on average – between a third and half a GCSE grade better, across all subjects, than students of the same ability in other schools. 
*Note: Due to subject choices, not all students are eligible for the EBacc. 60% of this year group were eligible.
