Our bespoke teaching and small class sizes empowers pupils to achieve excellent exam results and we pride ourselves on our strong performances across the School.
We are proud of our pupils and all they achieve, as demonstrated here by our GCSE and iGCSE examination performances over the past five years:
A*C / 9-4 92% | A*B / 9-6 72% | A*A / 9-7 49% with our average points being 6.0.
The pupils demonstrated academic excellence with another set of superb GCSE results in 2019. Pupils sat a combination of GCSEs and IGCSEs, receiving a mix of numerical and alphabetical grades, with 93% of students achieving A*- C (9-4) grades in five or more subjects. Over a quarter accomplished more than five 7s and above (A*/A grades), a fantastic achievement.
Amongst the impressive results, there were some notable performances by pupils that have embraced the holistic and balanced nature of Plymouth College. Zoe Lancaster, a talented pianist, secured nine 9 grades and two A*s. Ciara Bartlett, who is pursuing an international basketball career, achieved nine 8s or above. Annabel Denton, a GB U19 Pentathlete who had a very successful summer winning two bronze medals at the Youth World Pentathlon Championships, secured seven 8s or above and two 7s or equivalent.
Jonathan Cohen, Headmaster, said:
“Plymouth College continues to demonstrate its academic excellence and I’m thrilled to see all our pupils excelling in their exams. At Plymouth College we strive to educate, enrich and empower every single one of our pupils and today’s results, alongside performance in the value-added league tables, demonstrates our commitment to providing educational excellence both in and out of the classroom. As our wonderful Upper Sixth pupils head off to leading universities in a few weeks’ time, I’m very much looking forward to welcoming our amazing year 11s back in September, alongside the many new pupils joining the school, for the next chapter of their journey with us.”
