GCSE 2023 Results

We are delighted to announce another set of GCSE results at Reading Girls’ School which showcase the talent and hard work of our girls, and the commitment of our staff to ensure that our students reach their full potential. Year 11 should be proud of their achievement.

Across the curriculum areas, we have celebrated excellent results that reflect the unique character of the Reading Girls' School. Early indications suggest that a significant majority of our pupils excelled in a number of subjects.

Headline Figures:

  • Progress 8 is 0.61
  • Attainment 8 is 51.9
  • Grade 5 or above in English and Maths GCSE: 59%
  • Grade 4 or above in English and Maths GCSE: 70%
  • 86% of pupils were entered for Biology, Chemistry and Physics
  • Progress 8 score for Maths was 0.73 (national was -0.02)

  • Achieving the EBacc at grade 4 or above: 24%
  • Achieving the EBacc at grade 5 or above: 17%
  • 86% of students stayed in education or employment after KS4

This stellar set of GCSE results was achieved despite this cohort suffering significant disruption to learning time during the pandemic; having little chance for formal examination practice; and in the context of a return to the full course content and more robust grade boundaries of the pre-pandemic era.

Marika Farrugia, Principal, stated: I am so proud of the pupils. They have been rewarded for all their hard work, resilience and determination. The results are also a tribute to the parents and carers and to the dedicated staff at Reading Girls’ School who have nurtured and supported the pupils. Congratulations to the class of 2023!
