Achievements & Results

2016 GCSE

Parents, both present and future, will be delighted to know that the 2016 GCSE results continue to reflect a school that moves students on well from whatever their starting point. Reporting requirements have changed this year and it is difficult to make year on year comparisons but the results continue to demonstrate our ongoing commitment to examination outcomes!

  • The Attainment 8 Score was 52.8
  • The Progress 8 Score was +0.1
  • 63% of students gained an A*-C grade in both English and Maths
  • 20% of students met the Ebacc threshold

The Capped point score [the best 8 subjects per student] of 334 is once again strong and we anticipate this to be significantly above the national average demonstrating good attainment across the curriculum.

  • Average point score for English was 38.2 and the English (Language/literature) A*-C pass rate was 67%. Expected progress 73%.
  • Average point score for maths was 43.5 and the maths A*-C pass rate was 83%. Expected progress 87%
  • The 5+A*-C [including English and maths] pass rate was 60% and is now only an indicative figure and not used as a measure of school performance.
  • 67% of students achieved the overall 5+A*-C threshold measure whilst 99.3% of students gained 5+A*-G; again both of these figures are indicative and included for illustrative purposes only.

2016 A Level

  • Attainment: The overall pass rate at A Level was 99.2% with 74% of exams resulting in an A*-C grade and 45% achieving A*/B’s. Individual point score per entry was 208 reflecting a grade C result on average per entry.
  • Progress in English and maths level 2: +1. This means that students needing to retake either English or maths to progress in their studies were successful overall during their two year period with us.
  • Destinations: Early indicators suggest that 99% of leavers have positive destinations
  • Retention: Early indicators suggest that 90% of students have successfully progressed from AS to A2
  • All students wanting to move on to university were able to do so because of their results. We continue our relentless drive to improve our pupils’ life chances and to enable them in their journey to fulfilling their potential as an adult.
