The School switched to iGCSE in Biology, Chemistry and Physics, a more rigorous examination equivalent to an old O Level, to ensure that all their students were stretched and better able to face the challenges of A Levels and university. Alongside many other of the top schools in the UK, as iGCSE results are not counted in national league tables, the Schools will only appear in A Level league tables this year.
Monmouth School achieved a 95.5% pass rate (A* to C grade) with 58.3% achieving A*/A grades.
Connor and Oliver achieved 10 A*s.
Amongst the pupils collecting their results today were William, Tobias, Daniel and Morgan who recently rowed for the GB J16 VIII team against France.
Dr Steven Connors, Headmaster of Monmouth School said, “These results are tremendous and show that the boys have performed well across the board. They should be very proud of all that they have achieved, and I would also like to thank the teachers for their support, encouragement and unwavering commitment. Alongside the boys’ GCSE school work, they have managed to achieve outstanding success beyond the curriculum, for example we had four GB oarsmen at J16 level this summer, and in astronomy Noah has already delivered a scientific paper to the Royal Society.”
