Examination Results

Results 2020

We are delighted to be able to celebrate the achievements of our students.  The grades that each student was awarded this summer represent the culmination of countless hours of dedication and study. 

The impact of Covid-19 on this cohort of students’ final few months of school has been significant.  We want each of our students to feel confident that, in spite of them not being able to sit their exams, these results are a legitimate reflection of the hard work and commitment they have shown throughout their journey through compulsory education.  They should, each and every one of them, feel rightly proud of their achievements. 

I would also like to thank the teachers who have worked tirelessly to support these students on their journey.  Their rigour and integrity in determining the Centre Assessed Grades, drawing from a vast array of evidence, demonstrates their deep professional knowledge of the strengths of each of our students.  It has been a challenging time for everyone, and yet our teachers have continued to go above and beyond to support our students and I am immensely grateful to them for this.

Whatever grades each student has achieved, and there are countless examples of individuals making exceptional progress, the truth is that each young person is leaving with a breadth of knowledge and skills reflecting their time at school.  Most importantly, they are heading into their next chapter as young people with oodles of character, charm and a genuine care for the world around them.  We are deeply proud of them all.

 

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.

GCSE Results 2019

We could not be more proud of our students.  Every member of the class of 2019 should feel rightfully pleased by their achievements.  Behind every grade achieved in this summer's results lies a story - a story of hard work, commitment and resilience.

Outcomes across the board remain healthy, with particular success in certain subjects.  Achievements in maths and English continue to be strong, with almost 70% of the cohort achieving a pass in both subjects.  We were particularly pleased by the increased number of the highest grades in a range of subjects; biology, German, geography, PE and physics all saw a significant rise in the proportion of students achieving a grade 7 or higher.

As always, there were some stunning individual achievements.  Cameron Church and Hannah Lilly both attained an armful of top grades.  Cameron's 6 grade 9s is a record for the school!  However, the successes do not end there; so many students have exceeded expectations and some have overcome significant challenges to do so.  It is knowing the individual story behind every set of results that matters most to us and that gives us such reason to celebrate.

Well done to the entire cohort for a smashing set of results.  It was a privilege for us to work with the class of 2019 and we are incredibly proud of the superb young adults who now make their way into the world.   We wish them all every success in the next stage of their journey.
