Newcastle High School for Girls has appealed to the DfE for its results to be set to zero after performance figures reported were incorrect and reflected only one of its two founding schools.
NHSG was formed in September 2014 following the merger of two leading girls’ schools, Central Newcastle High School and Newcastle Church High School so will only be able to report on GCSE and A Level results from Summer 2015.
Headmistress of Newcastle High School for Girls, Hilary French, said:
“It is important to give parents an accurate picture of the performance of any school, in as far as league tables can reflect this.
“For Newcastle High School for Girls, the DfE performance table show only the GCSE and A level results of one of our founding schools. This situation has been further compounded by the fact that the GCSE results that have been reported are incorrect.
“As our school is only in its first year, I very much look forward to reporting upon our first set of GCSE and A Level results in August 2015.”
