GCSE Results 2019


Overton Grange School students and staff are once again celebrating a very good set of GCSE results this year. Over 70% of students gained a grade 4 Standard Pass or above across all subjects including English and Mathematics. This is a considerable achievement by our students, staff and the support given by parents and carers.

There were some outstanding individual success stories from students including those who achieved the highest grades, many students who coped with considerable personal or health challenges and those with special educational needs who worked hard and gained the qualifications they needed to pursue their ambitions at our Sixth Form.

Headteachers, Mr Bennett and Mr Stride, congratulated Overton Grange students on their summer achievements and thanked them for their hard work, well supported by teachers, parents and carers. “We have once again performed very well at GCSE across all subjects building upon the progress of the last two years. However, the most important consideration is that students have the qualifications they need to move on to the next stage of their education or training and are well prepared for adult life and we wish them every success.”

25 students managed to gain 6 or more grades 7 to 9, which is the equivalent of the A/A* grade, while 2 students gained 8 or more grade 8/9s, the highest grades possible. Indeed, we have exceeded the National Average for Grades 9 to 4.

Given that Overton Grange is a non-selective school in a ‘selective’ Borough, this is an excellent achievement.

Other students have managed to gain the grades that they needed to go into apprenticeships, further training, work or College. As an inclusive comprehensive school we celebrate achievement at every level and of every kind.

Mrs Brenda Morley MBE, Chair of Governors added: “As a school community we are very pleased with these excellent results by all our students, and I would like to thank the Staff for all their hard work.”
