GCSE Results 2020

Claydon High School students celebrate another year of GCSE success

Students at Claydon High School are celebrating an excellent set of results with many impressive individual performances.

The Class of 2020 have had a really challenging few months, having missed the end of their school careers because of lockdown and all of the usual rites of passage which go with this. Furthermore, waiting for exam results is nervewracking at the best of times, but for this cohort this has been heightened by the media coverage of the difficulties and uncertainty over the preceding weeks and days.

This makes us doubly proud all of our students who worked hard for the duration of their GCSE courses to achieve excellent results. We are very pleased that the centre assessed grades, alongside some upgraded results from the national standardising algorithm, are being issued to students as they take into account the full range of their performance including practical components for music, drama, sport and design technology as well as mock exams and consideration of individual circumstances which may have affected them.

This year group has been an excellent cohort, demonstrating daily our motto of being the best they can be. They have acted as exemplary role models for younger students, leading the School Council, wellbeing groups and a Green Council as well as performing consistently strongly in sporting and musical events. Each and every one of these young people has contributed to the culture and community of the school and they will be missed.

We hope that we will be able to safely gather together the students and their parents/carers in the future to celebrate their successes and to say farewell. As a school we recognise how important it is to work closely with families to support our young people, academically and for their wider wellbeing, and we thank them too.

I would also like to pay tribute to the team of people at school, teachers, learning support assistants, and other administrative staff who have worked tirelessly to support students throughout their time with us.

On behalf of all of the staff and governors at Claydon High School, we congratulate the Class of 2020 upon their many successes, especially in these GCSEs, and thank them for all that they have contributed to the school and wish them every success in the future.

GCSE Results 2019 

74% of the 123 students at Claydon High School achieved a grade 4 in both English and Maths. This impressive achievement from the class of 2019 equals last year’s excellent results. We are also proud of the number who achieved the EBacc qualification at the same pass rate. There are many students who have a set of GCSE results to be proud of and which will take them onto their choice of education or training in September.

Congratulations to all of our students upon their achievements; we ask each of them that they aim to achieve the best that they are capable of and they have certainly done this. We are especially impressed by students who overcame significant personal challenges during their GCSE studies. We will miss all of the students who contributed so much to the school community, including sporting talent, debating success and acting as role models in their student leadership roles.

There were successes in many areas across the school including pass rates in the following subjects: Spanish (85%), Biology (96%), Chemistry (98%), Physics (92%), Business Studies (85%), Drama (73%), PE (70%) and English Literature (75%). The Maths results were exceptional as they were last year, with 82% of students passing at a Grade 4 or above and lower down in the school Year 9 and Year 10 students also celebrated excellent results in Statistics and Further Maths; we look forward to those students developing their mathematical skills further as they study for their main GCSE.

The individual and group achievements reflect the combined efforts of students and their families, teachers and the wider school community, and my congratulations and thanks are extended to everyone who contributed.

 2018  Another excellent year of GCSE results - well done to all our students!

Students of the Class of 2018 have been awarded an excellent set of GCSE results, rewarding their hard work over the last two years. Of the 148 students in Year 11, 73% achieved a Grade 4 or above in English and Maths; 54% of them achieved a Grade 5 or higher. Pass rates in both of these two subjects at the Grade 4 and above, needed for future employment, education or training, were over 80%.

Congratulations to all of our students, some of whom overcame some personal challenges to achieve some excellent GCSE grades. We ask students at Claydon High School to ‘be the best they can be’ in all aspects of their lives and these results reflect their commitment to achieving that and are a fitting recognition for a year group who also impressed us with sporting, musical, performance and debating skills over their five years with us.

There were successes in many areas across the school including pass rates at Grade 5 and above in the following subjects: Biology at 77%, Chemistry and Physics at 72.4%, Food Technology at 83%, Music at 67%, PE at 67% and Business Studies at 85%. Pass rates at the highest grades of A-A* or Grade 7 and above were achieved in the Sciences, History, Spanish, Business Studies, PE, Food Technology and Further Maths. Over 20% of all grades were awarded at this high standard.

A huge thank you to all the teaching and support staff who have worked alongside our young people to achieve these outcomes, our governors and the South Suffolk Learning Trust for supporting our work, and to the families and parents/carers who have been part of the journey.

As our students move onto further education or employment with training, we wish them all the very best of luck.
