QEHS GCSE Results 2017 – initial overview

The summary below will give you an overview of exam results at QEHS prior to any re-marks and appeals. These results are based on the best grades the students left QEHS with. As more analysis of results is undertaken, these figures may be updated.

As you may know, the DfE has reformed its accountability framework [1], so the key performance indicators for this year are slightly different to last year and should not be compared directly with 2016 results.
