GCSE

2016

Students, staff and families are celebrating another outstanding year for GCSE results at Waddesdon Church of England School.

100% of students gained 5 A*-G grades, 90% gained 5 or more A*-C grades, with 78% achieving the benchmark 5 A*-C grades including English and Maths.  These results reflect the hard work of students and their teachers and support staff and the active support of parents and families.

We are all delighted with our students’ performance in their GCSE exams.  Our students are outstanding ambassadors for our school and they richly deserve their success.  We are most grateful to our colleagues and to our students’ parents and families for all they have done to help our students to achieve so highly.

The majority of the students at Waddesdon continue into our Sixth Form, but wherever they go, they have our sincere congratulations and our enthusiastic best wishes for continuing success.
