Going through the new and more rigorous GCSE exams in every subject for the first time, 75% of all students achieved a 4 or above in English or Mathematics and 67% achieved 5 or more GCSEs at grades 9 to 4 (the equivalent of the old A* to C) including English and Mathematics, reflecting the school’s ongoing commitment to a broad curriculum offer.

Nationally 66.6% of all grades were achieved at 4 or above whilst at Malton it was 74%.

Both boys and girls outperformed the national rates of achievement, this was especially important in a year group that was most unusually made up of 70% boys.

The inclusive approach of the school also saw the achievement of a larger than usual group of disadvantaged students come close to matching that of the rest of the cohort.

Sixteen students achieved 5 or more GCSEs at grade 7 (equivalent to the old A grade) or above.

Four students achieved this standard in all 10 of the subjects they took.

Deputy Head Mick Fenwick said: “It has been a very positive morning in school with the vast majority of our students achieving in line with or above their expected grades.”
