There are a significant number of students with outstanding results, many of them shown in the photograph below.
Special congratulations go to Abu-Bakker MAZHAR (6x A*, 5x A), Anil DOGAN (5x A*, 7x A), Intisar MOALIN (5x A*, 6x A), and James NGUYEN (4x A*, 5x A). James also achieved a very rare ‘A* Distinction’ in Further Maths.
Special mention also goes to Hanad ELMI and Shuqin WANG. Hanad started his UK schooling at NPCS as recently as September 2014 but worked very hard to achieve 7 A*-C grades, including an A in Maths. Shuqin joined NPCS in Year 8. She had moved to the UK from China and at the time was unable to communicate in English but nevertheless has achieved 5 A*-C grades, including an A* in Textiles and an A in Maths.
Most successful subject was Further Maths. Amongst a small cohort of 23 students, 8 achieved A* grades and 7 achieved A grades.
Despite the increased challenge which has been added to GCSE exams, the proportion of students attaining 5+ A*-C grades (including English & Maths) has remained steady at 40%.
A number of our students have won scholarships to prestigious Independent Schools:
Christ’s Hospital – Anil Dogan
Royal Hospital – Intisar Moalin and Jennifer Chu
Dulwich College – Rin Ngyuen
Eastbourne College – Chloe Webster
Wymondham College – Christian Cocha Guerra
The school has chosen to opt-in early for the new Progress 8 performance measures, which apply to all schools in 2016.
Our headline results for Progress 8 in 2015 confirm that students at NPCS make excellent progress, well above national averages, during their 5 years at NPCS.
