Exam Results

We are delighted that for the 5th consecutive year our students continue to improve and would like to congratulate all of our students on their excellent performance. The introduction of the new number graded GCSEs in most subjects make it difficult to compare the 2018 results to those in previous years.

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).

Last year saw the introduction of Progress 8 and Attainment 8 as 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.

While it seems wrong to single out students amongst such a great cohort particular mention should go Elizabeth Hale, Navjeet Khakh, Sarah Knight and Hannah Smith who all got 10/11 results at grade 7+.

Progress 8 measures the progress students have made from the end of primary school compared to pupils of the same ability across the country. Maisy Barnett, Andrea Cunningham, Sarah Knight, Jack Moore, Alex Perkins and Hannah Smith will all be top performers based on this measure, scoring on average 2.5 grades higher than expected in every subject.

Students gaining a 5+ in English and Maths was 33%

Students gaining a 4+ in English and Maths was 62% 29% of our students were entered for The English Baccalaureate (Ebacc), of which 9% gained a 5+ and 14% gained a 4+. The Ebacc APS is 3.7.
