Exam information & results
Students celebrate excellent 2017 exam results
Oldfield school’s GCSE results have shown another rise for the third year in a row, with 70% of students achieving 5 A*-C (including English and maths at grade 4 or above), and 22% of all entries at A/A* (or grades 7-9). This reflects similar successes at A-Level, and is well deserved for our hard working students and also our very dedicated and skilled teachers.

Yash Rajput (10A* and 1 A, achieved 9 in maths)
Lucy Lord (9A* and 2 As. Achieved 9 in maths and English Lit)
Thomas Wills (9A* and 2 As. Achieved 9 in English Lang and English Lit)

“These are excellent outcomes for our students, achieved in the context of a more challenging examination system. I am delighted with their achievements and I have every confidence that they have laid the foundations for great success in the future,” Steven Mackay, Headteacher.
Oldfield School head student Rhianne Good leads the way on A-level results day
Once again, at Oldfield School, we are delighted with our students’ success at A level this year. Nearly 20% of all grades this year were A* or A grades and over 50% of our students’ grades were A* A or B grades. 15% of our students achieved three A grades in their subjects. Notable successes this year have included our Head Student Rhianne Good who achieved three A grades at A level and an A* for her extended project; Rose Nicholson who also achieved 3 A grades and an A* for her extended project.
Although attainment is very important, even more so is progress. Our Sixth Form was judged to be in the top 25% nationally for the progress our students made. A wide range of our subjects produced results that were likewise in that national top 25%. These included; Photography; Business Studies; English Language; Film Studies; History; Physics and Psychology.
“Our Year 13 students have been an absolute credit to the school and have contributed so much to school events and extra-curricular activities. All our students deserve hearty congratulations for the hard work and dedication to their studies they have shown over the course of the last two years. We wish them every success with their future plans. Time to celebrate!” Graham Nash, Head of Sixth Form.
