Examination Results

GCSE Top Performers 2017

Stover School has bucked the national trend by producing another year of improved GCSE performance. This year, 80% of the cohort achieved 5 A* to C grades (or equivalent 4 and above scores) including English and Mathematics. Results have improved year on year from 45% in 2012 and the school is delighted for its pupils and the staff.

Mr Notman, Headmaster said, “the pupils and staff thoroughly deserve their successes. They have worked with dedication, focus and enthusiasm to secure some stunning grades in a time of uncertainty and change in the national GCSE provision. At the same time, this group of pupils have enjoyed a broad range of non-examination successes from international sporting commitments, to school drama and music performances and a whole lot more. They are to be complimented for balancing these commitments with their academic work so successfully.”

Particularly impressive were Rose Smith who secured 8 A* (or Level 9 and 8) grades and 2 A grades, and twin brother Jack who recorded 5 A*, 4 A grades and 1 B grade.

Press Release from Stover School

Stover School is delighted to announce the excellent A Level results achieved by our 2017 cohort. This year 79% of all entries achieved A*-C grades with 30% of the grades at A* and A.

There are many individual successes, with pupils gaining places at a variety of universities and colleges to study subjects ranging from medicine and surgery to geophysics and philosophy, politics and economics.

The staff and pupils have worked hard to achieve these superb results and they thoroughly deserve their success.

Particularly pleasing for the school’s new management team, staff and pupils, are the significant improvements in achievements that have occurred in the last two years. The percentage of A* and A grades has doubled, while A* to B grades have increased by over 20%. This is particularly relevant given the increased rigour in the examinations over the same period, reflecting Michael Gove’s reforms.

Amongst the top-performing individuals were Ursula Lancaster who achieved A*AAA grades in Philosophy, English Literature, Biology and AS Art and Callum King who will be going on to read Medicine and Surgery at Plymouth University following successes in A2 Biology, Mathematics, Psychology and Chemistry with AAA and B grades respectively. 

Stover School’s Headmaster Mr Richard Notman said of the results, “Stover’s pupils have proven that being a sportsperson, dramatist, artist or musician is entirely compatible with, and indeed complements, achievement of the very highest academic outcomes. We are fortunate to have a pupil body with a staggering diversity of talents and abilities, and they consistently exceed expectations. As a school we understand the importance of celebrating talent, and the pupils and staff can be justifiably proud of their achievements.”
