In 2018 the examination results were some of the best results the school has ever achieved. With a backdrop of new exam courses and a different grading system the school achieved higher results than the year before. 80% of students achieved grades 9 to 4 in English and Maths. This is the Government’s standard pass replacing the old A*- C grade. This is higher than the national average of 64% (2018 national figure) and higher than the 72% achieved by the students in 2017. Over half of the students (56%) achieved grades 9 to 5, a strong pass. This is higher than the national average of 40% (2018 national figure). 30 students in total achieved grades 9-7 in English and Maths.
Our progress 8 score is 0.2. Our attainment 8 score is 51.2.
We are really pleased with the outcomes the school achieved last year, particularly in light of the changes to the examination system that has taken place over the last two years. This demonstrates how well the students and staff have managed the changes.
Our A level results were also improved on last year. This reflected hard work and dedication of the students and staff especially as more subjects experienced the new linear A levels. Students achieved an average point score of 30.83, placing our average grade at C. 42% achieved A*-B grades and 72% achieved A*-C grades. We had a 96% pass rate overall. Our students have gained places at top universities or have gone onto apprenticeships in a range of careers.
