Exam Results 2019

We would like to congratulate the Class of 2019 for all of their hard work and effort. Some excellent results were achieved in some difficult circumstances with nearly 15% of you only starting at Dormston in year 10.

While it seems wrong to single out students amongst such a hard working cohort particular mention should go Mansi Singh who achieved a grade 8 or 9 in every one of her 11 subjects. Maria Hunt, Owen Roberston and Navneet Sekhon all achieved grades 7,8 or 9 in at least 9 of their subjects.

Progress 8 measures the progress students have made from the end of primary school compared to pupils of the same ability across the country. Maria Hunt, Navneet Sekhon, Grace Perry and Ellie Turner all scored on average over 2.5 grades higher than ‘expected’.

The new GCSEs are graded from 9 (highest grade) to 1 (lowest grade) with a 4 being the equivalent of a C grade and considered a standard pass. A 5 is considered a strong pass (high C, low B grade). Grade 7 is the equivalent of the old A grade.

Progress 8 and Attainment 8 are key indicators of school performance. These are calculated based on the performance of students nationally and ‘unvalidated’ early results are supplied to the school in October. These measures may change slightly as both our own and other pupils nationally have papers remarked.

Currently our Attainment 8 figure is 43.06 and the Progress 8 figure is -0.31
