First Star GCSE outcomes
GCSE outcomes for 2021 – despite the impact of Covid-19 – show our scholars doing really well
In 2021 First Scholars’ GCSE outcomes exceeded exceptions, even overcoming the disadvantages of Covid. 58% of scholars passed GCSE English and maths (grade 4 or above) compared to 17.5% of looked after children nationally (DfE, 2018).
32% of First Star Scholars passed GCSE English and Maths at grade 5 or above compared to 10% of looked after children nationally.
Ebacc scores and Attainment 8 scores are extremely good – scholars’ Ebacc scores (5.28) exceeded national score levels (4.28) and vastly outstripped scores for looked after peers (1.27). Similarly, First Star Attainment 8 score (47.10) compares well with national data (50.20) and is more than double the score for looked after young people (21.40).
