Public Exam Results

We would like to congratulations all our girls on their achievements at GCSE and A level.

At More House, we do not select pupils only the basis of academic excellence. We are extremely proud of our GCSE and A-level pupils, who received their results over the summer holidays. Thanks to their strong performances in these examinations, the leavers are off to their chosen universities and the new sixth formers are already embracing their A-level courses. We have the largest sixth form ever, which is hugely exciting.

A Level

The overall pass rate remains at 100% and A*- B rose by 8% to 41%. All students deserve to be congratulated for their hard work and dedication.

GCSE

As you know crude statistics like these results and league tables do not do justice to the value-added scores and individual successes and achievements of every one of our girls. Our value-added results continue to underline how, relative to their academic starting points, More House girls outperform other schools with similar intakes in public examinations. In terms of Value Added, we can confidently say that we have added approximately half a grade to pupils’ outcomes, on average, across all subjects. This year, pupils with SEN performed exceptionally well; 92% of all pupils in this group achieved 5 or more GCSEs at grades 9-4. 

It is important to remember that at More House we do not ‘cull’ our candidates prior to them sitting their examinations or enter them as external candidates. As a result, there may be a variation in overall standard from year to year because this reflects the differences in overall ability from year to year. Also we must remember that with small cohorts of girls, statistics are heavily impacted by one or two grades.
