City Circle Saturday School GCSE Results 2011

In the name of God, the Infinitely Compassionate, the Merciful
 
We are pleased to announce another year of strong results for the students at the City Circle Saturday School who sat their GCSE examinations in Mathematics and English this summer.
In total 15 students sat for Mathematics while 13 for English Language and 11 for English Literature.
 
One of the many objectives of the school is to directly raise the standard of the children so that at the very least they are achieving a B grade in Maths and English when they sit their GCSE exams in year 11 - it's not just about helping struggling students, it's about helping them reach the highest standards. While we currently target at least a B grade for every child who has been with the school since the primary level, we have full faith that inshallah this target will be raised to an A grade.
 
A brief summary of the results:
 
A*-C:
100% Maths
85% English Language
91% English Literature
 
A*-B:
73% Maths
77% English Language
91% English Literature
 
 
I think it is fair to say that these results don't provide one with a complete idea of the tremendous achievement of the teachers and students. There is the danger the individual stories of diligence, commitment and discipline are hidden in the collective results. I would say in most cases the students exceeded the expectations they would have had at the start of the year.
 
The objective of the school is not only for academic success but to improve the children's educational experience in its most complete sense: by presenting to them role models, granting them inspiration to do their best, encouraging them to see how they can give back to their communities and society and ultimately reminding them to seek God's pleasure in every endeavour.
