Exam Success in 2017

In 2017 our Year 11’s celebrated a record pass rate at GCSE with 92% of candidates achieving at least five A*-C (or equivalent) including Mathematics and English and an overall 93% pass rate. The English Department did particularly well, with a 100% pass rate in English Language under the new and more rigorous 9-1 grading regime, demonstrating that Sherfield pupils are well prepared for the tough changes to the GCSE landscape as other subjects follow suit next year. The new top grade 9 identifies the very highest performing pupils in the country, the top 2.3%.

There were also strong performances in STEAM subjects. Of the 48 pupils taking the IGCSE Mathematics Higher Tier papers, 79% achieved A*/A.  In Physics, 57% of grades were A*/A, with 64% in Biology and 54% in Chemistry. In Latin, 75% of grades were A*/A and in French 67%.

At A Level the school achieved an impressive 51% of A Level grades at A* to B.  Our mathematics results were outstanding with 80% of grades A* to B, topped by Further Mathematics where 90% of results were graded at A* to B. In Art we had 100% A*/A grades. 

Sherfield School pupils go on to study at an impressive range of universities and colleges including Oxbridge, Russell Group Universities and international universities including Monash in Melbourne, Australia; Istanbul; KyAMK in Finland and universities in the United States.
