GCSE Results 2018
Stover School is celebrating its best ever GCSE results, with 89% of the pupils achieving 5 or more GCSEs at A* to C (grade 9-4) including English and Mathematics. The schools performance has more than doubled since 2012 and risen 9% from last year.
Particularly impressive results were recorded by Maisie who achieved 8 A* (level 9 or 8) equivalent grades and 2 A (7) grades and Matthew who produced 7 A* (9 or 8) grades and 2 A (7) grades.
Stover is well-known for its positive Value Added outcomes, a measure of how much a pupil exceeds their expected grades. This year saw Chloe record a Value Added score of a massive 18 grades, in achieving 3 A* and 6 A grades.
Mr Notman, Headmaster, said, “This year’s results are exceptional; the best in the school’s recorded history. I am extremely proud of the pupils and my staff. We aim to help pupils exceed their academic expectations and in this sense this year’s GCSE results give a gratifying feeling of mission accomplished. The outcomes are a testament to the hard work that has taken place at home and at school. These results together with our inspiring extra-curricular offering reflect the superb balance that a Stover education provides.”
A Level Results 2018
Stover School is celebrating another set of excellent A Level results, with 60% of entries passed at A* to C grades. It is particularly pleasing that 14% of our awards were at A* level, exceeding the national figure of 8% by some distance. This marks exceptional academic and personal achievements for our pupils and has enabled the entire cohort to achieve their first choice post 18 pathways.
Special mention must go to Mia, who exceeded her predicted D grades in achieving a clean sweep of A*s in the STEM subjects, Mathematics, Physics and Chemistry. Resulting in 12 grades of value added performance.
Headmaster, Mr Richard Notman said, “I am absolutely delighted for our pupils, their families and our teachers. These results are just reward for a great deal of hard work by all involved. I am particularly pleased that we have enabled all of our Year 13 pupils to pursue their first choice courses and careers. Our pupils are encouraged to make the most of every moment of their time at Stover, involving themselves in many worthwhile extracurricular activities, alongside their academic studies. This has led to a group of accomplished and rounded young men and women securing their futures. Well done to everyone”.
