GCSE SUCCESS FOLLOWS RECORD-BREAKING A-LEVEL RESULTS
Congratulations to Wheatley Park students who have achieved the best GCSE results in the school’s recent history a week after our record-breaking A-level results.
Excellent achievement across the full range of subjects has led to an Average Attainment 8 score of 51 - a 5 point increase on last year and the school’s highest figure since the new performance measures and reformed GCSEs were introduced in 2017.
73% of students have achieved the crucial Grade 4 or above in both English and maths, maximising their choice of further study options.
We are immensely proud of the entire cohort for demonstrating remarkable levels of hard work and resilience throughout a demanding process.
We recognise and celebrate all their achievements, from the 14% of students who gained eight or more GCSEs at Grade 7-9 to the individual students who successfully completed their education with us after overcoming great personal adversity.
This year’s GCSE success at Wheatley Park represents a fantastic collaboration between committed students, supportive families and dedicated staff, underpinned by our school values of Everyone Learning and Everyone Caring.
Best wishes to all our former Year 11 students in their future ventures and thank you for being such wonderful members of our community.

RECORD-BREAKING A-LEVEL RESULTS AT WHEATLEY PARK

Enormous congratulations to all sixty students. Their results are due to expert teaching, deep pastoral care and, most importantly, the students' ceaseless dedication to their studies.
