2017 Results

Penair is once again celebrating fantastic GCSE results. Congratulations to all our students who have achieved at every level – we are proud of them all. 72% of students achieved A* – C or equivalent, in 5 or more GCSE subjects. Over a third of our students have achieved 3 or more A*-A. Penair School continues to achieve well above the national average for the GCSE performance measures.

Headteacher James Davidson said: “I would like to congratulate all Penair students on their excellent GCSE results this year. Amongst many areas of success, we are particularly pleased to see the very strong results in Mathematics and English. We are hugely proud that 34% of our students achieved a grade 7 or above in maths with 9% of students achieving the highest grade 9. Students have worked extremely hard and these excellent results are a tribute to their commitment and dedication. I would like to thank their teachers and other staff who have taught and supported students so effectively, and also parents who have nurtured and encouraged students throughout their time at school. This fine set of results reinforces OFSTED’s findings that Penair is a Good School” “Although today we are, of course we focusing upon celebrating our students’ GCSE results, it is important to remember that Penair students gain a fully rounded education. Our commitment to developing our students’ character, values, grit and determination, helps to make these achievements possible.”
