Now that we have had a chance to process this Summer’s GCSE results, UVHS is both delighted and proud to announce that once again, the students at UVHS have achieved a fantastic set of GCSE results. With the new grading systems for Maths and English in place it is not now possible to compare figures with previous years, but we do know that the performance of UVHS students against both county and national figures will be very positive.
The proportion of students achieving a standard pass in both English and Maths - a grade four and above (equivalent to C and above) was 78% - indeed, in English alone, almost 9 out of every 10 students achieved a grade 4 or above. As a result of this strong performance, the percentage of students gaining the equivalent of 5 or more GCSEs at Grade A*-C (9-4) was 75% - significantly higher than the Cumbria average and, we expect, the national average.

UVHS is absolutely delighted with the achievements of all students completing their A Levels this summer. Now that all the results have been processed we can confirm that it has been one of the most successful exam seasons ever recorded, with our ‘value added’ scores the best in the school’s history.
A record 63% of all grades were A*-B and 88% A*-C. We were also delighted with a 100% pass rate across all 22 A-Level subjects.
Almost 50% of all our students achieved at least one grade A at A-Level.
The school is immensely proud that 77% of all Year 13 students were accepted into their first choice universities, including 3 students who accepted offers from Cambridge after achieving their required grades. We are also very pleased that all of our students applying to study medicine secured their places as well. The most popular destinations this year were Leeds, Liverpool, Lancaster and Newcastle University which, all together, accounted for around a third of our university-bound students.
