Examination Results: Year 11

Another excellent year...

Year 11 Results in Summer 2016: 77% C+ in English and Mathematics

The percentage of students achieving A*-C grades in both English and Maths was 77% this summer with 74% of students achieving 5+ A*-C including English and Maths. We were delighted as these results reflect both our commitment to raising the attainment of our students and their continuing hard work.

Students of all abilities have exceeded many of the accomplishments of last year.

At the highest level, 32 students gained 8 or more A* and A grades with 66 students gaining 5+A*A grades.  Over 283 students gained eight or more GCSEs and over 670 A* and A grades were achieved.   69% of those taking the EBacc combination of subjects gained C+ in all areas equivalent to 21% of the cohort.

In individual subjects there were some excellent results with the Mathematics and English results continuing to be outstanding and results in Science (Core, Additional and Further), Languages, Art, Applied Business, Computer Science, Further Mathematics, Textiles, PE, Philosophy, Music, Hair and Beauty far exceeding national figures.

Progress figures are also very pleasing overall with outcomes of 0.17 that, for the size of school, means that progress is significantly positive compared to national figures.

The figure means that, on average, every student gained 1.7 grades higher than expected from national figures.  Higher ability students gained 2 grades higher than similar students, and students of all abilities (both boys and girls) were above national progress figures.  English, Mathematics, Science, Modern Languages all were above expectations and students with EHCP (SEN needs) also did well with outcomes of 0.12 (or 1.2 grades higher than expected).  National Performance tables show Year 10 outcomes, and so do not reflect these outcomes (see below for an explanation of this).
