Oxford High School GDST’s students continue to demonstrate the highest levels of achievement, as was reflected in the school’s recent ISI inspection report, the inspectors noted the “consistent pattern of strong academic attainment, with many pupils attaining results above those expected on entry”. This year’s excellent GCSE results continued that pattern.

  • 48% of GCSEs awarded, were Grade 9s.
  • 75% of GCSEs awarded Grade 8s and 9s.
  • 88% of GCSEs awarded were Grade 7s, 8s and 9s.

The school’s pastoral provision – again, highlighted in the recent inspection: “an atmosphere of mutual pleasure in working to achieve success” – means that the students who benefitted from intensive pastoral support will continue to do so as they navigate the next stages of their education.

In addition to the above, the school is celebrating those students who took extra GCSE courses beyond their core curriculum in Years 9 and 10, with 83% of those pupils achieving grade 9s.

“It’s been a wonderful experience to support the growth and curiosity of this group of courageous and bold students as they navigated ‘post-pandemic learning’. I am so grateful to all our staff, our parents and everyone in our community who has worked so hard to support them” — Marina Gardiner Legge, Head of Oxford High School GDST.


“The varied interests, sparky attitude and determination of these students shines through these results. We’re so proud of them. I know from all of my conversations with them, their parents and teachers that they will go on to do great things – many within our Sixth Form. I am so grateful for the support and guidance that our team of tutors and pastoral staff have given them over the last couple of years” — Jeff Pelling, Head of Year 11.
