Its a right royal result as pupils get their grades
KING’S School Macclesfield GCSE students took the tougher new GCSE examinations in their stride with another set of superb results.
More than three-quarters of all grades were at A* to B or the equivalent with the new numerical format, with a staggering third of all pupils getting eight A grades or better while the number of King’s pupils receiving a Grade 9 in maths was three times the national average.
Headmaster Dr Simon Hyde said: “We are delighted with all our results and congratulate pupils and staff for their hard-work, planning and preparation period of change.
“Though the new grading format helps identify the truly exceptional student, it is the results of all of our students that are important to us.
“We’re delighted to see so many happy students now able to progress to during a national the next stage of their educational journey.”
