Abbeywood Community School has reported a “record-breaking” set of GCSE examination results, despite this year’s candidates experiencing several years of disruption due to the Covid-19 pandemic.

The proportion of students achieving both English and Mathematics at Grade 4 or above was 63 percent (compared to 67 percent in 2019).

Grades 7-9 were recorded across a wide range of subjects, while 78 percent of students achieved a Grade 4 or above in English.

A spokesperson for the school said:

“These formal examination results reflect the strength in teaching and positive student attitudes at Abbeywood, and with the school attracting record numbers for next year it is an exciting time at Abbeywood.”

“Headline figures this year continue an upward trajectory, following on from a successful set of 2023 A-level and vocational results last week.”
