GCSE Results 2014

Despite reports of significant drops in subjects such as Maths and English, it’s business as usual here at the Vaughan with stable results counterbalancing the national variability.

The proportion of pupils gaining 5 or more A*-C grades, including Maths and English, rose from last year’s 92% to 93%, with 57.3% of all GCSEs taken resulting in A* or A grades – tripling the national boys average of 17.6%. Achieving our highest score ever in A*-B grades, Cardinal Vaughan more than doubled the 38% national average for boys and almost quintupled the national average of A* - 24.7% of GCSE pupils at Cardinal Vaughan walking away with the top grade.

Matthew Bacarese-Hamilton is one of our pupils who achieved an exceptional run of results, scoring ten A* and two A grades. He said:

“I feel great. I was really nervous but it’s a big relief to have received such good grades. I look forward to beginning my A-Levels at the Vaughan next term and going on to University after that.”

Cardinal Vaughan achieved a 100% pass rate in nine subjects (Classical Civilisation, Engineering, Geography, Graphic Design, Greek, Latin, ICT, Chemistry and Spanish) with a 95% overall pass rate in grades A*-C.

Headmaster, Paul Stubbings, said:

“This is the reward for all the hard work and dedication of pupils and staff alike. The support of our parents also plays a massive role in achieving such outstanding results."
