 2016 Results Statement

100% of all students achieved at least one qualification and 65% of all GCSE only entries were graded at C or above. 17 students achieving 8 or more A*/A grades and some achieving straight A* grades. 21% of all GCSE grades were A*/A. This shows how truly inclusive and comprehensive we are as a school.

The College’s  headline measure of Attainment 8 is 48. This is a new national headline measure of  the best 8 subjects including English and Mathematics. The other new national measure called Basics, which measures the percentage of grades at C or above for English and Mathematics is 53% . Given the national context and national changes to the way the performance of GCSE results are now measured, Ofqual have stated that it is difficult to make comparisons with previous years. (NB these results are provisional and subject to change)

At A Level, 100% of our students achieved A*-E Grades which is our best ever for three years in a row. Many of our students have progressed on to university with many getting their first choice place. Our Sixth Form judged as good by OfSTED also achieved 22% A*/A grades and 75% C grades or above at A Level.
