Exceptional GCSE results at Mayfield
Mayfield is celebrating some of its best ever GCSE results, an impressive achievement in a year where examination reforms have made it more challenging for students to reach the top grade. Over one-third of all entries were awarded either A* or 9, the newly introduced highest grade in GCSE English and Mathematics, which recognises the very best performing students. Almost three quarters of entries were graded A*/A or 9–7 and 98% A* to C or equivalent.
An outstanding 20% of the year group was awarded A*/A or equivalent grades in all their subjects and almost 20% achieved 9 A* or equivalent. Over three quarters of the year group attained 5 or more A*/A or equivalent. The GCSE results are all the more impressive as the School has a broad academic intake and they highlight Mayfield’s success in unlocking the academic potential of each girl. They are a testament not only to the first-rate teaching and exceptional pastoral support at Mayfield but also to the School’s ethos of commitment, aspiration and challenge and we congratulate the girls on their achievements.
