GCSE/Level 2 results released

Share this page

Thursday 25 August 2022

Students across the Bailiwick received their GCSE and other Level 2 grades today, achieving an impressive set of results considering the challenging circumstances they have faced in recent years.

This group of students sat external examinations for the first time since 2019, and so caution should be taken in attempting to compare headline figures to previous years.

England's exams regulator, Ofqual, has called 2022 a "transition" year, with grades being brought down from the highs of the past two years to be more in-line with pre-pandemic results.

There have been a great many success stories across our schools and The Guernsey Institute. Overall, 67.2% of students across the Bailiwick have achieved at least five A* - C/9 - 4 grades including English and maths. This is a credit to students and teachers throughout the islands.

While they are not directly comparable, a 4 in the new grading system is roughly equivalent to a C Grade, and a 7 is roughly equivalent to an A Grade. 

As in the previous two years, school leaders will be analysing the results under the new Guernsey Attainment 8 system, the results of which will be published in January alongside England. 

Le Murier Year 11 students also had an excellent year with accreditations and qualifications being gained in functional skills, ASDAN, City & Guilds and BTEC from Entry Level to Level 2.

Results for students at The Guernsey Institute will be published in October in line with England.

Deputy Bob Murray, Vice - President of the Committee for Education, Sport & Culture, said:

"Today's results show just how much effort all of the island's students at Level 2 and GCSE have put into their studies in the last two years. After years of learning and teaching in an environment that was anything but normal, on behalf of the Committee, I'd like to congratulate each and every student who received their envelopes this morning for overcoming those challenges. I hope their results reflect the work they have put in. I'd also like to thank teaching staff for their hard work in helping our students through these difficult times and ensuring they can deliver when it comes time to put pen to paper in an exam hall. Well done to everyone who has received their results today."

Liz Coffey, Executive Principal of the Secondary School Partnership, said:

"After the difficulties of the last few years, the group of students receiving their results today can be very proud of themselves for their hard work. They have shown resilience and perseverance, and hopefully that will be reflected in their results. I am sure all students will be keen to join me in thanking everyone who has supported you throughout their education, and I know we as staff will be eager to hear of your future successes as you embark on the next steps of your journey, whether that be in education or employment."

Wendy Wilson, Headteacher of St Anne's School, Alderney, said:

"I am very proud of the achievements of all our pupils this year. Each success story is grounded in the solid relationships fostered at our school, the dedication of staff and the diligent support of our parents. Thank you to all of our teachers from early years, infant, junior and secondary; it is their work as a team that allows pupils at St. Anne's to progress into the next steps of life with their heads held high. The results are a true reflection of what we aspire for our young people, 'Inspired to Learn... Supported to Succeed'."
