Plymouth secondary school league tables 2013
PERFORMANCE tables have been released showing city pupils GCSE results.
At GCSE level nationally, 59.4 per cent of pupils in both maintained and independent schools reached the government's benchmark of five GCSEs (or equivalent qualifications) graded A* to C, including English and maths - up from 58.2 per cent in 2011.
In Plymouth, 57.5 per cent of pupils reached the government's benchmark of five GCSEs (or equivalent qualifications) graded A* to C, including English and maths.
Comparing results across Plymouth, Devonport High School for Girls have scored top of the table, with 99 per cent of pupils getting grades A*-C in five GCSE - or equivalent qualifications.
At the bottom of the table, only 29 per cent of pupils at Sir John Hunt Community Sports College were getting grades A*-C in five GCSE - or equivalent qualifications.
This year is different from many others as a number of schools were affected by a grade boundary change in the GCSE English paper.
A row broke out in August after it emerged papers taken in June were graded more harshly than those in January.
At A/AS-level, the average number of points netted per pupil at each school has also been collated.
At Devonport High School for Boys the average number of points netted per pupil was 1074.2, which was the highest in the city.
At Stoke Damerel Community College the average number of points netted per pupil was 529.6, which was the lowest in the city.
And in the English Baccalaureate, pupils getting A*-C GCSE passes in maths, English, two science subjects, a language and either history or geography, 69 percent of pupils achieved this at Plymouth High School for Girls who were at the top of the table.
However at Tor Bridge High, St Boniface’s RC College and Marine Academy Plymouth, only one per cent of pupils were achieving A*-C GCSE passes in those subjects.
