Exam Overview

GCSE

In 2019 the examination results were yet again some of the best results the school has ever achieved. 

At GCSE, attainment 8 is a really important measure because it tells you how well students performed across 8 subjects, including English and Maths. We saw an improvement in our attainment 8 figure again this year, 52.6,  as you can see this is well above national (44.5). With the strong performance across 8 subjects our performance 8 measure is a positive 0.11. It is also important to note that we are 5% above national for the proportion of top grades awarded.

The basics measure is the percentage of students achieving Level 4 (standard) or 5 (strong) in both English and Maths. 76% of students achieved basics standard (national 64%) and 47% basics strong (national 43%). 

99% of Year 11 students have remained in education or employment with training.

GCSE Results 2019


A Level

We were really pleased with our A Level results as we have been focussing on the sixth form.

At A Level, it’s important to look at the APS per entry as this gives more of an idea of the quality of grades in general.  Ours increased significantly this year (34.5) and as you can see is comfortably above national (32.12).
