Excellent A level and GCSE results
In the summer 2018, our Year 13s and Year 11s celebrated another very successful year of A level and GCSE examinations results.
Overall, 86% of A level grades were A*-C, 58% were A* – B and almost a third (32%) of the A level examination results were A* – A grades. 81% of the BTec results were graded Merit or above. Our leavers have, once again, gained places at a number of prestigious universities, including Russell Group, to study a diverse range of courses such as Medicine, Economics, History, Languages, Politics, Engineering and many others.
GCSE figures were also impressive: 29% of the grades were A*/A (9-7), 45% A*-B (9-6), and 81% A*-C (9-4). In Music 100% of pupils achieved 4 + pass grades. The English and Maths departments also enjoyed significant successes; the proportion of pupils achieving 9-4 grades for these subjects were 92% and 80%, respectively. The ‘Attainment 8’ measure stands at 53.9 across all subjects as opposed to 53.6 in 2017.
Many congratulations to all sixth formers and Year 11 pupils. We wish all our Year 13 leavers a bright and successful future, whether they choose to go to university, travel or start employment. Thank you to the parents and members of staff for their incredible support. A large cohort of our Year 11 pupils are now continuing their education with us into the Sixth Form.
These results makes us, once again, one of the highest performing non-selective state school in the borough.
