Our School

Attainment and Progress

We are proud of our students´ success in exams...

Key Stage 4 (Year 11)

The school's performance in GCSE exams is now measured in terms of the students' progress compared with their starting point in Year 7.  The grading of English and maths GCSEs changed in 2017 and the reformed GCSEs are graded 1 (low) to 9 (high).  Grade 4 or above in the new grading is a similar level of achievement to a grade C or above in the old grading.

In 2017

  • Our provisional ´Progress 8´ score is -0.09*
  • Our ´Attainment 8´ score is 38.8*
  • 53% of students gained a grade 4 or above in maths and English GCSE
  • 17% of students achieved the English Baccalaureate combination of subjects**
  • 72% of students gained a grade 4 or above in an English GCSE
  • 64% of students gained grade 4 or above in maths GCSE

*Progress 8 and Attainment 8 are new performance measures that gauge students´ results in their eight best subjects.  For more information, visit:  https://www.ncfe.org.uk/media/790481/SecEdGuideTo-NCFE%20web.pdf

** This is the percentage of pupils who achieved the English Baccalaureate (EBacc) at a grade 4 or above in English and maths, and at a grade C or above in the following subject areas: sciences, a language, and either history or geography. The English Baccalaureate is not a test or qualification; it is a measure used to provide information about a particular range of qualifications.

Key Stage 5 (Sixth Form)

In 2017 our overall pass rate at A*-E was 97% with 66% at A*-B.  For Applied General Qualifications our points score was well above the national average at 45.68 with an average result of Distinction*.  Overall, our progress score was -0.1 which is around national average. 

These results have enabled a higher than average proportion of students to move to their first-choice higher education destination, apprenticeship or employment, something of which we are very proud.
