GCSE Results Day: LVS Ascot – Top Grades Up, Despite National Grade Reset

Published by LVS Ascot on Thursday 24th of August 2023

Our students are celebrating an amazing set of GCSE exam results. Grades 8-9 were up 1.5% on 2022, despite the ‘Great Reset’ of GCSE grades this year.


20.4% of grades this year were 8-9 (18.9% in 2022). This also represented the highest level of 8-9 grades in the ‘normal’ pre-pandemic years since 2014. One student achieved an incredible ten grade 9 passes including an A in Further Maths.


Students taking the Maths Higher and Foundation did particularly well, they had the highest pass rate (97.7%) for a decade…and that was including the higher-marked Covid years


Other highlights include 100% BTEC pass rate and the highest percentage of grades 9-7 in a ‘normal’ year since 2014.


Dylan achieved two grade 9s, two grade 8s and seven grade 7s. He’s been with LVS Ascot since Year 2 and will be staying with us for another two years as he takes up his studies in our Sixth Form. Dylan is looking to do History, Politics and Film Studies at A-Level.


Ava joined LVS Ascot in Year 7, and she’s just achieved a grade 9, seven grade 8s and one grade 7. Longer term she wants to study Creative Arts & Humanites at UCL.


School Principal, Christine Cunniffe said “We are delighted with the GCSE results this year, and the higher grades achieved. It is a testament to the exceptional work of our staff and the hard work and perseverance of the students at LVS Ascot”.
