Students and staff at Colyton Grammar School are today celebrating GCSE results which have improved on those for 2019 (the last year when examinations were marked externally) and where the top grades of 7 to 9 are more than three times the national average. 

This year, 90 per cent of GCSE grades at Colyton Grammar School were marked 7 to 9, compared with 86 per cent in 2019. The national average for grades 7 to 9 is 26.3 per cent this year. 

From a cohort of 154 students, 21 gained 10 or more grade 9s. The overall attainment of grade 9s was 43 per cent. 

Tim Harris, Head Teacher at Colyton Grammar School, commented: “These results are exceptional, especially taking into consideration the disruption caused to students and colleagues by the pandemic and its aftermath. As a whole GCSE students across the country have faced unprecedented challenges and my congratulations go to our students who have shown the most extraordinary mental fortitude, and to my colleagues who have guided them through the difficulties of the past few years.”
