Key Stage 4 Exam Results 2016

Reading Girls’ School is delighted to report very encouraging results for its students in the 2016 exam season.

Using the new Key Stage 4 national measure of the percentage of students who achieved A*-C grades in both English and Maths, results were up by 3% on 2015, at 48%. In English, 70% of students gained A*-C, while 52% of students did so in Maths. The percentage of students who attained the EBacc rose from 8% last year to 14% this year, and students made more progress overall than last year, as measured by the new national measure Progress 8.

These improvements are a real tribute to the students' and teachers’ hard work throughout what was a difficult year, and are particularly impressive as results across the country fell in 2016.

We are proud of each and every student and their individual successes. Outstanding performers include Yashica Gupta and Kama Gunde, who both got 10 A*s. Other noteworthy performers include Ofuase Dirisu who got eight A*s and three As, Sidra Karim with six A*s and five As and Amasha Rajagura with five A*s, an A and a B.
