St Peter’s Church of England VA School in Exeter GCSE Exam Results 2019

Students at St Peter’s Church of England VA School in Exeter are once again celebrating their excellent GCSE results.  Chair of Governors, Karen Leach said, “We are delighted that our focus on outstanding teaching and learning continues to provide strong results for students, enabling them to build foundations for exciting and aspirational futures.  These results, on the back of our Excellent SIAMS inspection in May are evidence of the great work of students and staff.”

Early information suggests St Peter’s have performed well above the national expectation of students gaining strong grades in both English Language and Maths.

Initial analysis indicates that at least 87% of students in Maths and 83% in English achieved the new harder to achieve 9-4 grading.

Significant successes also came in 9-7 grades (the equivalent of the old A/A*) in Music with 65%, Physics with 55%, Biology with 45% and in Chemistry with 44%.  Students in RE, PE, Art and Photography have also achieved extremely positive progress under the new tougher measures and we look forward to further comparative data.

Some of the stories of success are:

Grade 9’s

Harriet Wood with 10 grade ‘9’s’, Holly Hoban with 9 grade ‘9’s’ and 1 grade ‘8’, Hannah Mulcahy with 8 grade ‘9’s’ and 2 grade ‘8’s’, Zoe Mirvahedy with 8 grade ‘9’s’ and 1 grade ‘8’, Samuel Pestridge with 7 grade ‘9’s’ and 3 grade ‘8’s’, Molly Wraith with 7 grade ‘9’s’ and 3 grade ‘8’s’and Briony Dillon with 7 grade ‘9’s’ and 2 grade ‘8’s’.

Exceptional progress has been made by many students, amongst the students making the most notable progress are:

Tom Vincent, Diya James, Charlie Tapp, Zoe Davies, Esther Lawley-Hopton, Molly Harris, Iric Joseph, Katy Baylis, Louise Leclerc, Lily Prole, Ellen Robertson, Talesha Stylianou, Amrutha Dileep, Poppy Harris, Alan Peter, Zak Wilton-Davies, Eva Ludlow, Gib Clayton and Lola Wylie.

Headteacher Phil Randall said, “I am so pleased for the students, their parents, carers and the staff.  GCSE’s are always a challenge but this year has seen so many additional challenges with significant changes in what is being studied and the new even harder grading system.  Therefore what has been achieved by St Peter’s Church of England VA School students and staff is even more encouraging.  The results reflect the fantastic commitment of our students and staff who work closely in partnership with our parents, carers and governors.  Our relentless focus on teaching and learning and building the resilience of our students continues to improve their experiences and outcomes.”
