Malton School GCSE Results 2007
Record results once again!

Some headline summary facts and figures:

  • 70% of entries resulted in a pass at grades A*-C, which is our best ever, beating the previous best of 66% last year, (and in 2003).
  • The percentage of 16 year old students gaining 5 or more grades at A*-C is 67%, 5% up on last year.
  • The pass rate is virtually 100%, with only 1 fails from a record 1011 entries.
  • All students in the group achieved at least 1 GCSE pass, with 97% achieving 5 A%-G.
  • Girls performed better than boys. 7% more girls than boys gained 5 A%-C passes. The top 2 performers were girls, though the next 5 were boys
  • Five students gained all grade A or A* results. The best individual performance came from Helen Carrie with a staggering 11 A* results – that is the top grade in every GCSE subject she entered. Another best ever performance (equalling Emma Marsden last year). Amy Burnett scored 8 A* and 3 A's, James Baker and Will Smith 6 A* and 5 A's, Simon Gaskell 7 A* and 4 A's, Daniel Pratt 5 A* and 7 A's.
  • Well done to the Science department once again on the star-gazing, with 10 double A*s, and a further 14 double A's. This is important to us as a specialist Science college.

Deputy Head Stephen Fearnley commented: .
“We are once again delighted with results this year – continuing our upward trend over the years, we have hit 70% passing at grade C or above for the first time. Once again one student gained 11 passes at A* level. n incredibly high achievement! Well done to all involved in making this another successful year, and best wishes to them in the next stage of their education or training.”
