Today, almost 2000 Doncaster students are celebrating achieving the GCSE benchmark of five A* to C including English and mathematics. For the first time this year GCSE performance is calculated based on students first examination attempt.
Many young people will be celebrating improved outcomes that are not shown in the headline figures today. A number of schools both nationally and regionally are reporting lower results than last year under the new arrangements, Doncaster is in line with this trend. Whilst five schools have improved on last year, the unvalidated figure for Doncaster is 53.2%, a 2.6% drop from 2013.
Lead Member for Children’s Services, Councillor Nuala Fennelly, stated ‘We congratulate all Doncaster students who are celebrating their achievement today and we look forward to continuing our work with schools and academies in order to raise standards even higher.’
