Excellent 2017 GCSE results at La Sainte Union School


On Thursday 24th August, Year 11 students at LSU celebrated their very impressive GCSE results. In a year, which saw huge changes in specifications and ways of marking and grading, they were justly rewarded for all their hard work. We had phenomenal achievements across the board and this will ensure that students are now able to access their chosen post 16 pathways.


74% of all results across all subjects were A*-C grades or 9-4, opening up a wide range of opportunities post-16

68% of students achieved 9-4 in both English and mathematics, with 92% 9-4 in English and 70% 9-4 in mathematics. These grades are vital for many post-16 options.

84.3% of all Religious Studies grades were A*-C, with 35% at A*-A

14.5% of all mathematics grades were 9-7 (A*-A) (provisional national 15.5%)

21% of all English Language grades were 9-7 (A*-A) (provisional national 13.6%)

36% of all English Lit grades were 9-7 (A*-A)  (provisional national 19.2%)

Our students worked especially hard to achieve top grades:

24 students achieved a grade 9 in the new GCSE

28% of all results across all subjects were graded at the highest level - A*-A or 9-7   

53% of all results were A* - B or 9-6 grades, reflecting the ambition and high aspirations of our students

La Sainte Union offers a traditional curriculum:

Of the students who took triple science: 85% achieved A* - C in biology; 87% achieved A*-C in chemistry 92% achieved A* - C in physics

Students who took double science achieved 81% A*-C

All students study a language to GCSE. In French, 67.8% of all results were at A*-C and in Spanish 71.9% were at A*-C

In option subjects the following A*-C percentages were achieved:











 We are delighted with these results which reflect the strong work ethic which exists throughout the school. Year 11 worked hard and the excellent teaching staff supported them exceptionally well. Our maths results were not as expected and we are in the process of challenging the exam board as these do not reflect the hard work of the pupils and staff.

Thank you to all who have supported them in achieving these great results: their subject teachers, the pastoral team, the support staff, and the valuable support from home. La Sainte Union has proved once again that this is a school in which all students can thrive and achieve their very best.
