A-Level Results 2019
This has been another fine year for A-Level results, with 13.9% of grades attained at A-Level A*, 46.1% A* and A, and 69.5% A* - B. Over a quarter of students attained AAA or higher at A-Level and eleven obtained places at Oxbridge. These superlative results, no flash in the pan, keep us right at the top end of The Times's national league table for all Catholic comprehensive schools at A-Level.
GCSE Results 2019
At GCSE, the proportion of grades at 9 & 8 (i.e. equivalent to the old A* grades and above) was, at 31.5%, extremely high, and over three times the national average for boys. Half of all grades were 9-7 – in other words, in old money, A**, A* or A. I am especially proud that the proportion of grade 9s attained by Vaughan boys in English Language was, at 10.1%, over seven times higher than that of all boys nationally (1.4%) and that the overall A8 grade attained by Vaughan boys across the board was 6.3: that is every boy knocking on the door of an old A grade in every subject. The P8 score looks set to be 0.5; this means that each boy achieved half a grade higher than his primary performance indicated. Such results make the Vaughan, according to The Times, the highest performing comprehensive school for boys in the country.
