70% of GCSEs at The Grammar School at Leeds awarded top 7/8/9 grades

Thursday 24 August 2023

It’s been a year of excellent results for The Grammar School at Leeds (GSAL), with 70% of all GCSEs awarded the top grades of 7, 8 or 9 (A/A*). 51% of entries were awarded grade 8 or above, and almost a third given grade 9.

GSAL’s GCSE Class of 23 included five sets of twins, two Bradford City academy footballers, two City of Leeds Youth Orchestra members, an Olympic swim team hopeful, an England U17 cricketer, a Junior GB tennis player and a rising golf star. Six students had particular cause for celebration after receiving 9s – the highest possible grade – across the board in 10 subjects, and 43 students achieved 10 grade 8s and 9s.

Sue Woodroofe, Principal at GSAL, said: “The preceding years haven’t been easy for this year’s GCSE cohort, and their outstanding achievement is thanks to their hard work, determination and resilience – and, of course, that of their family and teachers. I’m so proud of everything our students have achieved, both academically and personally.”
