Laude San Pedro International College has had another outstanding set of results in the most recent GCSE and A level exams. The results, which came out last month, show that more Laude students than ever achieved an A-C pass in their GCSE and A levels.
The number of A-C passes at GCSE is 91% this year, showing a 7% increase on the previous year. The percentage of students obtaining high grades in this external exam has also increased with 72% of students achieving an A*-B grade. The number of passes at A level has also increased from last year’s results, with 80% achieving an A-C and 98% achieving A-E. These results are all well above UK national averages and reflect the academic rigour of the curriculum at Laude San Pedro International College.
The English Department at the school maintained their 100% pass rate in GCSE First Language and in GCSE Literature for the second year running. In fact, this year all students achieved a B grade or higher. The results in the A Level English Language and A Level English Literature exams were equally outstanding, with all students achieving an A or B grade.
Amongst these statistics there are many individual success stories, and many students performed better than their target grade. Indeed, the results are particularly impressive given the student cohort. Laude San Pedro International College, which was included among the best schools in Spain according to El Mundo newspaper earlier this year, has 52 different nationalities, and a number of students start at the school with little or no English. In fact, a number of students passing their GCSEs last year began in English Induction classes only four years ago.
The Head of the school, Remedios López, said: “I am really pleased with this year’s results. They are a credit to the hard work of our students and the high expectations of their teachers.”
