Exam Overview


In 2016, Monk’s Walk School celebrated a great set of GCSE results, with improvements over 2015 despite reported falls in results nationally.  Provisionally, 68.4% of students attained grade C or above in English and maths (the ‘basics’).  The national average in 2015 was 58%.  26 students gained A* or A in at least eight of their subjects.  Students of all abilities performed well; however, of our more-able students, 97% gained the basics in comparison with 91% of more-able students nationally (2015 national figure). 

We are very pleased indeed with the recent set of GCSE results.  These come in the face of important national changes to the way GCSEs are assessed and warnings from the DfE and Ofqual about volatility in schools’ GCSE results.  We are delighted for the students who have worked so hard – they thoroughly deserve their success.  We are also grateful to staff who have yet again demonstrated outstanding commitment to our students and to the school in general.  Not least we would like to extend out thanks and appreciation to our parents who support our students so magnificently so they can fulfil their potential. 

Because of the excellent results, we have very large numbers staying on in the Sixth Form; so there is lots to do! 

We are now focused on achieving even greater success in 2016.

A Level

Monk’s Walk School is celebrating a fantastic set of A Level results in 2016.  Overall, the school A Level pass rate is 99%, 72% at A*-C.  93% attained 3 A Levels at A-E.  We are delighted with the results which are testimony to the students’ hard work and determination to succeed.  Our results compare really well to other schools, even though we only offer academic A Levels.

Almost all students gained a place at a university of their choice, including Oxford (maths, medicine and chemistry) and other great universities.  Students also gained places on apprenticeships with top employers.

We are very proud of all of our students and wish them all the best for the future.
