Examination Outcomes and Ofsted
A Level Results 2023
Year 13 students at Woodbridge High School received their very well-deserved A Level and Level 3 vocational and technical (VTQ) results. The school is once again very pleased to report some excellent achievements by students this year.
Steven Hogan, Headteacher at Woodbridge High School, said: “Woodbridge students have once again excelled themselves. They have been working hard for two years to achieve their well-deserved A Levels and VTQs. I am delighted that so many of them have achieved excellent grades that will enable them to go on to study their chosen courses at universities across the country, or to take up apprenticeships in range of
companies. It has been lovely to see their smiling faces today as they opened their envelopes.”
He continued: “Year 13 students collecting results today did not sit GCSE exams, and experienced huge disruption when they were in years 10 and 11. We have seen Woodbridge teachers and support staff do allthey can in recent years to make up for this and help our young people achieve their very best. I am so grateful to all of the wonderful people working in schools. Results days for me are never about percentages, but instead about celebrating the individual successes of each and every one of our students. I think what they have achieved is nothing short of amazing, and I am immensely proud of them. I wish them every success as they embark on the next stage of their lives.”
GCSE Results 2023
Grading for GCSE examinations this year has been returned by the government to the standard last seen in 2019, before the pandemic. This means that the number of top grades seen nationally has fallen significantly since last year.
Despite this national fall in outcomes, Woodbridge has seen 23pc of all GCSEs graded at 9-7, the equivalent of A*-A grades under the previous system. 75pc of all students achieved grade 4 or better, and 62pc grade 5 or better, in both English and Maths. These are excellent outcomes for the school that compare with the best schools nationally, despite the disruption to students’ education in recent years.
The majority of Woodbridge students will be continuing at the school as they join its highly successful Sixth Form in September, with enrolment taking place today and tomorrow. The school offers one of the widest ranges of A Level and vocational courses available locally. The school says that there may be some places left for students from other schools for some courses, and staff will be on hand at the school to advise.
