GCSE Results Day 2023
24 August 2023
Despite this year being the year when there has been an expected fall in grades nationally, and most of this year’s GCSE students being in Year 8 when the pandemic hit, results today are a real celebration for our students and staff here at Priory, as we have continued to maintain our strong academic outcomes from previous years.

- 70% of all pupils achieved a grade 4+ (standard pass) in 2 Sciences.
- 67% of all pupils achieved a grade 4+ (standard pass) in Languages.
- Over 20% of pupils sitting the following subjects achieved a grade 7, 8 or 9 – Art and Design, Chemistry, Physics, French, Geography and Maths.
- Vocational subjects also performed fantastically well with Health and Fitness, Dance, Childcare, Engineering, Graphics, Creative iMedia and Drama all demonstrating outstanding results once again.
Congratulations, therefore, first and foremost, to our students. We all know how hard it’s been at times, but also how hard they have worked. They should be very proud.
Congratulations too, to everyone associated with the school; staff, parents guardians, trustees; in supporting our young people throughout their time with us.
Principal, Mr Eastham, said, "These results, in a year when there has been an expected fall in grades nationally, are a real celebration for all, after 5 years of hard work, to get our young people to where they are now and are testimony to the dedication of everyone. An enormous amount of hard work has gone into these qualifications in often difficult circumstances and the young people receiving these results deserve great credit for what they have achieved."
The results will ensure our students can now leave Priory, equipped with the right skills and attitudes to help them succeed in life, contribute positively to society, and go on to further education, employment or training.
Congratulations again on our student’s achievements and our very best wishes for what we’re sure will be their bright and exciting futures.
