In 2017 Pipers Corner celebrated record results at GCSE with a significant increase in top grades in a broad range of subjects.
In over 12 subjects at least half of all results were at the top A*/A grades including Geography (in which 86% of candidates achieved A*/A grades), as well as History, Drama, Textiles, Food Technology, ICT, German, Spanish, Physical Education, Religious Studies and Design Technology (Resistant Materials). In Mathematics iGCSE over a third of girls attained A* or A grades.
The new grading system in English Literature and English Language provided some very pleasing results as well. Almost half of all students achieved top grades 9 – 7 (equivalent to A*/A) in English Literature, with a quarter of girls achieving the highest grades of 9 – 7 (equivalent to A*/A) in English Language.
