Cognita students celebrate 2019 exam results
Students at our British Curriculum schools in the UK and Spain are celebrating another successful year of strong GCSE and A Level results.
In the UK, Cognita students have achieved nearly twice the national average of GCSE grades at the prestigious Grade 9 (9.1% vs 4.7% nationally). This exceptional performance is mirrored at Grades 8+ and 7+ (equivalent to the former Grade A and above).
Subjects with outstanding performance include Maths, with 10% of Cognita students achieving the top Grade 9 compared to the national average of 3.7%, and English Language, with 34% of Cognita students achieving a Grade 7+ compared to an average of 17% nationally. At Akeley Wood Senior School in Buckinghamshire, the sciences dominated, with a fantastic nine out of ten results at Grade 7+.
There was cause to celebrate in Spain too, as 46% of all grades awarded were A*-A. Standout performances came from The British School of Barcelona (BSB) and The English Montessori School (TEMS) in Madrid, where 50% of all grades awarded were at A*-A.
Among the A Level highlights are North Bridge House Senior School & Sixth Form Canonbury in London, whose students significantly outperformed the UK national average, with 32% of A*-A grades compared to 25% nationally.
Students were delighted to secure places at their first-choice universities for onward study, including some of the world’s top academic institutions such as University of Oxford, University of Cambridge, Imperial College London and University College London.
Stuart Rolland, Cognita’s Chief Executive Europe, said: “We are immensely proud of our students’ achievements. The results are a testimony to the hard work and commitment of both students and their teachers. We wish our students every success for their further studies and future careers.”
