24th August 2023               Celebrating great GCSEs at Bishop Vesey’s Grammar School Bishop Vesey’s Grammar School is delighted to celebrate the many outstanding achievements of all their Year 11 pupils in the GCSE examinations this summer. This is despite the fact that this cohort spent their formative Years 8-10 living in the shadow of the coronavirus pandemic, which has had a massively disruptive impact on their learning. Mr Goodwin, Deputy Headteacher in charge of Pastoral Care at Bishop Vesey’s Grammar School said, “It is really pleasing to see that GCSE results at Bishop Vesey’s Grammar School are at 70% 7-9 and 46% 8-9, which compare very favourably to our last ‘normal’ set of results in 2019. The average student Attainment 8 score is 75, the equivalent of every pupil attaining five grade 8s and five grade 7s.” There have been many exceptional student performances with 10 students attaining straight top grades. Five boys received a clean sweep of ten grade 9s: well done Kian, Sanjay, Aditya, Donald and William! Well done also to Yusuf (eight 9s, two 8s and an A in Additional Maths), Umar (eight 9s and two 8s), John (eight 9s, two 8s and an A in Additional Maths), Lemar (three 9s and seven 8s) and Amar (five 9s and five 8s).
