2019 GCSE Results

Many congratulations to our Year 11 students at Robertsbridge Community College for achieving an outstanding set of Key Stage 4 results this year, which they should feel very proud of. It has been a privilege to work alongside our students, who have worked so effectively as individuals but also as a team to support each other through a challenging set of new GCSEs. Their achievements are a testament to their hard work, effort, resilience and determination to succeed.

We are especially proud of the students who joined us during their school career for a fresh start, some as late as year 11. Their perseverance and commitment to their own learning has been impressive and they have achieved results which reflect this.

Not only have our students achieved a great set of results but we have had the pleasure of seeing each student grow and develop personally during their time at Robertsbridge. We are very proud of each and every one of them. We would also like to thank all of our staff in providing our students with a first class education delivered with passion and dedication in order to prepare our students effectively for the challenge of GCSEs and just as importantly to our parents for their continuous support of the school. 

It should also be remembered that exam results, important as they are, only represent part of the bigger educational picture.  As well as performing so well academically, we would like to take this opportunity to commend this cohort for participating wholeheartedly in so many other areas of school and community life.  They proved to be outstanding role models and are excellent ambassadors for the school, their families and the wider local community.  They deserve their success and everyone at Robertsbridge wishes them all the very best for the future.

Overall, Robertsbridge has seen an improvement from last year in several areas:

  • 79% of students achieved grade 4+ in Maths
  • 27% of students achieved grade 7+ in Maths
  • 61% of students achieved grade 5+ in English
  • 20% of students achieved grade 7+ in Biology
  • 100% of students taking Dance achieved grade 4+, with 27% of these at grade 7+

I would personally like to congratulate all the students, staff and parents here at Robertsbridge for their hard work over the last 5 years, culminating in today’s nervously-awaited results. As a school, we have seen some amazing individual grades as well as some exceptional performances from subject areas.

As we all know, the new GCSE exam specifications have brought much more challenge and rigour to every area of the curriculum that our students are educated in - with now a total emphasis on final exams in the majority of subjects, the pressure on both students and parents throughout the country has been immense, but the Robertsbridge community has most certainly risen to the challenge! These are stunning results and they reflect the hard work of all the students, teachers and supportive parents.

Our school is going from strength to strength and it was a privilege to be amongst so many happy students this morning. One of the best outcomes is that our students made such excellent progress in their time with Robertsbridge. They really responded well to excellent teaching and staff that believed in them.

* Note that the 2019 figures above are in draft and will not be finalised until January 2020. They take into account national data and are subject to several revisions before being finalised. At the moment we are aware of at least one key set of data (GCSE Dance results - in which our students produced excellent results) that is missing from the calculations which have been made by the Government. Therefore, while we have published the draft figures as they currently stand, and may yet publish further drafts as these are produced by the Government, these figures should not be relied upon until finalised.
