Every year we celebrate the academic success of our pupils, whatever that represents for the individual. For some it will be securing an Oxbridge or Ivy League university place or gaining straight A* grades at GCSE. For others it will be achieving good pass grades in all of their subjects.
We expect the very highest standards from all of our pupils, regardless of their ability. Indeed for some, their real achievement is measured through the progress made over their years studying with us. Our community celebrates all successes equally, if pupils have fulfilled their potential.
In 2018, Worth celebrated the best results the school has ever achieved since GCSEs were introduced in 1988. Almost two thirds of all GCSE grades awarded to Worth students were A* - A (or 7, 8 or 9). Well over half of all students received six or more A* or A (or 7, 8 or 9) grades. 40% of all results were given the top grade of A* (or 8 or 9). Six students received straight A* (or 8 or 9) grades, amassing an incredible 75 between them.
