We are once again delighted with the results that all our students have achieved. We are very proud of all of them and look forward to seeing their continued success in the future. They are truly amazing young adults who have a huge array of talents and skills.
St Edmund's continues with excellent levels of examination results which are comparable to last year's, which placed the school into the top 2% nationally. 81% of students achieved a 9 - 4 grade in both English and Maths. This represents a tremendous year of hard work, commitment and dedication from the whole of the St Edmund's family.

As you may be aware, the Government has reformed and changed GCSE courses. This has also coincided with a different emphasis on how schools are measured and compared to other schools. Despite these changes, St Edmund’s remains one of the top performing schools in the country. This reflects the school’s ‘Outstanding’ grade for student achievement, which is based upon a consistent level of high performance.
We are extremely proud of all our staff and students who have worked incredibly hard to achieve outstanding results. (For example, last year we were the highest achieving school in the whole of Hampshire and Portsmouth for individual student progress (Progress 8). We had many students achieving the new grade 9 and were above the national average for the number of students who achieved the top grade.
Indeed, 27% of students achieved at least 1 A* grade. However, I am equally as proud of those students who achieved grades which reflected their own progress and commitment to learning. All students (100%) left with qualifications. This can only be achieved as a contribution of quality teaching, high standards, hard work and the whole support of the St Edmund’s family.
