The Exams Team

We are delighted with the outcomes for all of our students, who demonstrated an improvement on results from 2019 – the last set of GCSEs performed using the same grading criteria. 

Students demonstrated their resilience and commitment with an outstanding set of attainment and progress results. Despite the widely publicised drop in grades this year to bring exams back in line with pre-Covid grading, Dorothy Stringer students’ results were strong.

  • Attainment 8, the measure which takes into account a range of 8 GCSEs, is 53.74, meaning that students, on average, gained a Grade 5.
  • The number of students achieving a Grade 5 or higher in both English and Maths has increased to 61% from 2019. (82% for Grade 4 or Higher)
  • The number of students achieving grade 5 or higher in Maths has increased significantly from 2019 to 70% of students with 87% achieving Grade 4 or above.
  • English results remain strong at 74% Grade 5 and above and 86% at Grade 4 and above.
  • 47% of students achieved a full EBacc suite of subjects (English, Maths, 2 Sciences, a humanity and a language)
  • Two thirds of all grades achieved were at Grade 5 or higher.

Head Teacher Matt Hillier said –

Brighton and Hove Secondary Headteachers are jointly celebrating the achievements of our students. Schools have worked in partnership, closely and collaboratively, to ensure that every child in our city has access to a good education and is able to make strong progress. We take collective responsibility for a set of exams results that reflect great levels of attainment and achievement across all schools in Brighton and Hove. Today’s results reflect the hard work and tenacity of fantastic group of students, and an unerring commitment from all schools to joint practice development and partnership for the benefit of every young person in our city. We are extremely proud of the ‘Class of 2023′ and wish them all the very best for the future.
