Scarborough College Year 11 pupils had much to celebrate on the release of their GCSE results. Over 20% of all entries were graded at A* and a 100% A* to C outcome across all pupils was achieved in no less than 12 separate subjects.
The College's 'Value-Added' score also demonstrated that on average almost an entire grade was added to every GCSE subject for ever pupil beyond their external prediction.
The Headmaster, Charles Ellison, commented: "We are simply delighted by this year's tremendous results. They are testimony to a great deal of determined hard work by the pupils and staff over a number of years. As a genuinely mixed ability school, we are especially pleased by our continued capacity to bring about such a significant level of academic 'added value' which reflects our strong commitment to small class sizes, a broad curriculum, expert teaching and exposure to confidence-building opportunities outside of the classroom. The year group is very well prepared to succeed within the rigorous IB Diploma course that awaits them."
