Croydon High celebrates the inspiring achievements of their aspirational GCSE pupils

Croydon High School GDST has confirmed its commitment to encouraging every pupil to work hard and to aim high, announcing excellent GCSE results for the 2023 students

  • 46% of GCSE students awarded straight Grades 7-9
  • 55% of grades awarded are the highest Grades 8-9
  • 77% of grades awarded are Grades 7-9

Croydon High’s Head Annabel Davies said:

“We are absolutely delighted to be celebrating the individual journeys of these impressive young women, as well as the GCSE results they have achieved. We recognise their hard work, dedication and focus and we know that each of them will be determined to build on these strengths as they go forward.

I would also like to publicly recognise all the staff here at Croydon High for their unrelenting support of each and every girl, every day. Our school is growing in every sense and I am so proud of the relationships forged between pupils and staff, which make it such an inspiring environment in which to work and learn.”

The range of subjects studied at GCSE reflects the diversity of interest which is such a feature of Croydon High life, and the school is particularly proud to recognise the journeys that many of their pupils have been on, bringing them to this point, where they can proudly celebrate these impressive GCSE results.

The majority of pupils at Croydon High take Triple Award Science and here the results are particularly strong, with 88% of pupils awarded Grades 7-9 (A*/A in the old currency) in Biology and Chemistry and 89% awarded Grades 7-9 in Physics. English Literature grades were exceptional – 93% of all pupils achieved Grades 7-9 and in Latin this figure was an outstanding 100%.

For a school that is renowned for its sporting achievements, it is pleasing to see that 82% of pupils sitting PE GCSE were awarded the top Grades 7-9.
