84.2% of Sutton students achieve five GCSE 9-4 grades this year, including English and Maths
Students and teachers at Sutton’s schools have been celebrating this year’s GCSE results with results well above the national average.
84.2% of Sutton students have achieved five GCSE 9-4 grades this year (9 being the highest and 4 a standard pass), including English and Maths. The national average pass rate is 67.3% this year.
For the third year running, pupils in England were receiving GCSE results graded from 9 to 1 – rather than the traditional A*-E – under a reformed system originally introduced only for maths, English language and English literature.
Councillor Marian James, Chair of the People Committee at Sutton Council, said:
“The Council is ambitious for our borough and is committed to making sure that Sutton keeps its reputation as a great place to live, work and raise a family.
"I am delighted that pupils in Sutton schools have continued to excel and receive amazing GCSE results.
“Congratulations to all pupils on their hard work. I would like to thank the hugely dedicated teachers, governors and support staff who work so passionately on behalf of all our young people in Sutton.”
NB: All results are provisional - final statistics will be available in January 2020
