This is the first set of results under the new GCSE framework. The syllabus for the Maths, English and English Literature GCSEs has changed considerably both in terms of topics covered, the amount of material and the level of difficulty. In some subjects content that was previously AS level is now in the new GCSEs. There is no longer any coursework element, and all exams are now taken at the end of Year 11 with no modules being sat during the course. And finally, the grading of GCSEs in these subjects are changing from letters (A*-G) to numbers (9-1).

For this year letter grades are being used for other subjects. Next year, 2018, will see the majority of remaining subjects move to numbers, too.

Once again Hayle School students have done themselves proud and achieved some outstanding results. All of the achievements are remarkable and are the product of their commitment. We believe that a number of factors have contributed to all this success of which the hard work of the students themselves, the support of their parents and the skill and dedication of our teachers are the most significant.

Hayle School has continued to achieve a positive trajectory of examination results for the last 5 years, and will seek to build on this achievement.
