23 Aug GCSE Exam Success
The Year 11 Students at Cambridge International School are celebrating their GCSE successes this morning as they receive their results. The students at the non-selective independent day school based in Abington sat a combination of International GCSEs and the newly graded GCSEs. 86% of all marks were graded 4-9 (or their equivalent) with 54% being graded 7-9, the former A/A* grades. 79% of students received an A/A* in their IGCSE Maths. A particular strength of the school is languages and 86% of students obtained at least one Modern Foreign Language at a grade 4 or above. With two students achieving A/A* grades in the three languages they took.
Cambridge International School Principal, Mrs Philippa Mills said:
“These excellent results are a reflection of the hard work and dedication of the students and the staff, and also of the tremendous support of our parent body. The results are a testament to the school’s strength and commitment to ensure that amazing learning takes place at all levels. My warmest congratulations go to all of our Year 11 students. I am so very proud of all that they have achieved and wish them well as they go onto the next step in their educational journeys.”
Happy students Maria and Aya (who gained 100% A and A*grades in her IGCSEs) said “we are overjoyed with our results.”
The students will now leave CIS and progress onto various sixth forms in Cambridge; Hills Road, Stephen Perse and Long Road to name but a few.
The CIS students are celebrating not only their outstanding results, but a whole host of successes throughout their time at the school. For many of the students English is their second language and they have overcome many barriers, helping them to develop life skills which complement their excellent academic achievements.
Cambridge International School offers a broad curriculum, allowing students to pursue their interests within small classes, designed to facilitate their ongoing development and achievements. As well as their academic studies, pupils are encouraged to participate in a wide range of extra-curricular activities, enabling them to become confident, independent young people.
Summary of results:
Five 4-9’s is 79%, Maths Pass (4 or above) is 93%, English pass (4 or above) is 86%.
