GCSE and Level 2 results for 2018

Share this page

Thursday 23 August 2018

68.4% of students in the Bailiwick have achieved five or more GCSEs or Level 2 equivalent qualifications including English and Maths at grade 4/C or above.

Last year saw the introduction of the new 9-1 grading system (9 being the highest grade) for English Literature, English Language and Mathematics. A further 20 subjects have used the new grading system this year, with most others following in 2019. The reformed exams have a wider and more challenging range of content. The new grades have been brought in to better differentiate between students of different abilities, particularly at the higher end of the scale. Fewer Grade 9s will be awarded than A*s currently.

The Bailiwick figures include results from the three grant-aided Colleges (the Education Office does not report on the Colleges' individual results) and those in special schools unlike some other jurisdictions. Please note that at this stage the results still remain provisional.

NB Les Voies have a very small cohort

A new secondary school accountability system was announced in England in 2013 and introduced in 2016. The two main headline measures that will appear in the English performance tables are Attainment 8 and Progress 8.

Attainment 8 measures pupils' attainment across 8 qualifications including English, Maths, three qualifications that count in the English Baccalaureate and three further qualifications, as shown below.

GCSE Table

Pupils' Attainment 8 scores are then compared to those of other pupils nationally with similar prior attainment to calculate a Progress 8 score. These are then averaged across a cohort to give a school's Progress 8 score, which aims to capture the average progress made from the end of primary school to the end of Key Stage 4.

For further information on the new English accountability system, please read the Secondary Accountability Measures guide which can be found at https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/progress-8-school-performance-measure.

When the Committee was elected in February, no preparations had been made to introduce these new performance measures in the Bailiwick. The Committee has started investigating the possibility of introducing similar performance measures at the earliest opportunity and is working with officers and Headteachers to enable this. The Committee is also exploring the options for reporting on the wider outcomes of schools.

Only if Guernsey develops these similar measures will it be possible to make meaningful comparisons with England. The focus for this year's results should be, where it is possible, on the Bailiwick data trends over time.

Deputy Richard Graham, Vice President of the Committee forEducation, Sport & Culture, said:

'On behalf of the Committee, I would like to congratulate all our young people who have worked extremely hard to achieve these results today. Our thanks and congratulations also go out to the teachers and support staff who have enabled their pupils to achieve these high standards through the challenging transformation period for GCSEs.'

Andrew Warren, Director of Education, said:

'Our students and teachers have all worked extremely hard to obtain these fantastic results. Today's focus should be on celebrating the success of our students and I wish them every success as they move onto the next stage of their lives.'
