GCSE & A-Level Results 2016

The Vaughan has long enjoyed a position of national prominence in terms of the high performance of its pupils in public examinations: year after year the School tops national league tables, regularly outperforming many selective and fee-paying schools.

Its success is attributable to its unapologetically traditional outlook: we expect hard work from pupils and staff, and support from the parents. Regular homework in all subjects is set to support classwork. High standards of discipline are expected and enforced. This traditional approach, however, does not mean that the School looks backwards – on the contrary, pupils’ learning is supplemented by state-of-the-art technology. The Vaughan is, therefore, traditional in the best sense of the term: retaining the best of the old, it adopts of the best of the new.

At the heart of the School’s success, however, lies its Catholic ethos, which underpins all that it does. It is this ethos, to which all members of the School – staff, pupils and parents – subscribe, which binds us all together, creating a sense of unity. This unity of outlook leads to a clearly defined sense of purpose, which creates real momentum. The results of this are plain for all to see.

A-Level Results 2016

This has been another fine year for A-Level results, with the School firmly retaining its position at the top of national tables.  The proportion of A* grades is, at 19.4%, well over double the national average of 8.1%, while well over half - 54% - of all grades were A* or A, 83% A* to B, and 96% A* to C. Ten pupils will go on to Oxbridge.

We are delighted with our GCSE results which make the Vaughan, according to The Times, the highest performing comprehensive for boys in the country:  22.1% of grades - four times the national average for boys - were at A*, and 49.4% A* & A: three times the national average.  87.4% of pupils attained at least five good GCSEs including Mathematics and English. 

These complement our A-Level results, in which we were found to be, according to The Times and The Daily Telegraph, the top comprehensive school in the country.
