As part of global changes to GCSE examinations, some subjects have been graded on a new 9-1 scale this year. This means that students have letter grades for some of their examinations and a number grade for others. A grade 4 is equivalent to a low grade C, while a grade 8 or 9 is equivalent to an A*. Most schools are still reporting their results as letter grades.

In addition, 100% of students achieved A*-B in global citizenship and in French; 100% were graded A*-C in maths, history, English literature, music, design and technology and drama.
