Our Exam Results

2019 Examination Performance

As GCSEs have changed, there is now a greater emphasis on the progress students make rather than just on the actual grades they achieve.  This is a great step for us because our students make really good progress in many subjects.  As a result of this our Progress 8 is positive for our 2019 results overall, an in every ability band.  In addition, with respect to grades, 16 subjects performed better than National Average at either grades 7+ (A*-A) or grade 4+ (A*-C) and 15 subjects improved performance from 2018 results. 

We are really pleased to have seen so many students achieve great results this year that will support them into positive futures and we have seen results improve across many areas.  Many of our students started Year 7 having thrived at primary school, although many others joined us with learning, and particularly literacy, difficulties, and so the results we achieved were all the more impressive.
