Exam Results 2018

This year our Year 13 students did themselves proud achieving a pass rate of 94% and meeting their challenging targets at A*-B level with several students surpassing this and attaining A*-A grades. This enabled the vast majority of students to embark on the university course of their choice.

After a fantastic 16% rise in 2017, Year 11 students celebrated a further percentage increase this year at the new, and more challenging threshold, of grade 5 and above in English and Maths, with even further gains at the top grades of 7 to 9.  Despite the introduction of new and more challenging GCSEs in the majority of subjects (the new national measure graded 9-1) we have seen an increase of nearly one GCSE grade on average per student. These results have enabled a large number of students to join us in our Sixth Form this year.

We are pleased to see that provisional data shows an improvement in Attainment 8 and Progress 8 measures. This data will be published once it has been validated by the DFE.
