Examination Results

Results 2021

The GCSE results of the class of 2021 represent the culmination of 5 years’ worth of dedication and study.  We are delighted by the outcomes that our students have achieved across the full range of subjects here at Frogmore Community College.

These results are particularly impressive in the context of the disruption, caused by the pandemic, to their education over the past 18 months.  The resilience and tenacity that our students have shown, especially through the gruelling period of assessment between March and May, will stand them in great stead as the embark upon the next steps in their journey.  We are immensely proud of them all for the way that they rose to the challenges, time and again.

A big part of the success for this cohort is down to the immense hard work of teachers and support staff throughout the past year.  Whether it has been adapting to online learning, maintaining provision in school for our most vulnerable, or developing fair and accurate methods of assessment in lieu of exams, the staff here at Frogmore have gone above and beyond to do the best they can for the students.  The support of parents, carers and the wider community has buoyed us in this mission and for this we are highly grateful.

Today is a day for celebration.  These qualifications open doors for our students and they can take their next steps with confidence and pride in all that they have achieved.

Exam Results Overview

School accountability measures changed significantly in 2016, so that schools are now required to publish the following information: ‘Progress 8’, ‘Attainment 8’, ‘Basics’ and ‘E-Bacc’, all of which can be seen in the table of examination results below. 

These measures are explained below the table.  We have included the % of students who achieved five or more 9-1 or A*-C including English and maths in order to allow for historical comparison.
