GCSE Results 2018
There were lots of smiling faces at Selby High School today as students and staff celebrated an excellent set of examination results. This year, the majority of subjects followed the new 9-1 grading system, and students have performed well from all different starting points. 20 students gained six or more grades at 7 and above, and five students gained 4 or more grade 9s - the very highest grade.
Principal Nick Hinchliffe said, “Well done to all students and staff for their hard work and commitment. I’m really proud of the way in which everybody has risen to the challenge of the new tougher GCSEs. This year we’ve not only maintained our performance levels in English and Maths, but many subjects also saw a rise in grades at A/7 and above. The strong performances across a wide range of subjects, emphasises the high quality of teaching and learning at Selby High School. I’d like to pass on my congratulations to all year 11 students who have excelled today.”
Subjects which performed very well compared with national averages included Product Design (79% C+), French (83% 5+) and Fashion (82% C+). All triple science subjects, Computer Science, Art and PE all had impressive results across the grade ranges. A number of subjects also significantly improved their performance from last year, including History and Spanish.
