2015 EBacc results
You might have seen the report in the Watford Observer about the secondary school league tables and the observation about WGGS that ‘none of the Key Stage 4 pupils achieved an English Baccalaureate.’
There are many other local academic schools in a similar position with 0% of students passing the EBacc according to published performance tables who choose a syllabus more appropriate to their students, which the league tables do not recognise.
We deliberately choose courses that we feel will give the girls the best opportunities in the future. The Biology, Chemistry, Physics and Double Science Award courses that our girls follow, the iGCSE, are not recognised in the school league tables and as such some of our results appear disappointing. The impact is that many of the published figures do not reflect how the girls actually did, as two or three of their qualifications (3 A*s in many cases) are not counted.
