Results 2018

We are celebrating another great set of results this year! 

Our GCSE results were outstanding.

Of the students entered for GCSE:

  • Progress 8 score was +0.78 
  • Attainment 8 score was 51.4 (well above the average for England)
  • 65.5% of students attained a standard pass in English and Maths (above the average for England)
  • 19.5% of students passed EBacc 
  • ALPS Key Stage 4 score is 3

We are especially pleased with the number of higher grades across a range of subjects:

 % 9-7 Spanish (61%), Media (58%), RE (46%) and History (38%).

We are very proud of each individual child and their own personal achievements.

A Level

We are pleased to report a 99% pass rate at A level (55% A*-B and 79% A* - C grades). The proportion of students achieving the highest grades is particularly impressive. Students studying BTEC courses also achieved excellent results. When BTEC results are taken into account the A*B becomes 65% and the A*-C becomes 83%.

This continues to place us in the top 10% of schools for progress made when measured using the Alps performance measure. Our A level results have been consistently placed in the top 10% of schools by Alps for more than three years running.

A full breakdown of results by the Department for Education performance measures will be available on the website shortly.
