Headmaster Greg Meakin comments: “It is accepted that grades across the country were affected adversely by stricter marking criteria in English, Mathematics and Science this year. This effect is naturally magnified for Learning Support pupils at Moyles Court. Starting this September, the school is moving to IGCSEs in order to protect all our students from the disruptive effects of on-going examination reform. To give them the best chance of success, our GCSE classes average 15 pupils for core subjects (English, Mathematics, Science and ICT ) and just 10 pupils per class for GCSE option subjects. ”

Year 9 pupils at Moyles Court School learned this week that they passed the FCSE examinations in French and Spanish, with 79% of all passes awarded a Merit or Distinction. Moyles Court has a 100% success rate over the last 5 years for securing all leavers their first or second choice post-16 destination.GCSE results photo 2
