We are incredibly proud of the GCSE class of 2017 who achieved great results, particularly given the national context of new examinations, more challenging thresholds, and a fall in the national figures.

Parrs Wood achieved 69% of students with 'standard' passes of 4+ in English and Maths and 45% at the new 'gold standard' of 5+ passes in English and Maths. We are really proud that almost 25% of our entries were awarded with an A* / A grade.

Particular congratulations to:
- 43% (15.3%) students who achieved 5 or more A*/A/9/8/7 grades
- 35 (12.4%) students who achieved 6 or more A* /A/9/8/7 grades
- 12 students who achieved straight A*/A/9/8/7 grades
- 33 (4%) of our student entries who achieved the highest possible grade of 9 in English / Maths
