Exam Results

The release of provisional progress 8 data puts our figure at -0.21 for 2018, an outcome that represents over half a grade improvement for progress compared to the 2017 outcomes.  The progress 8 unadjusted calculation puts us within average for the confidence interval.  The DfE performance table can be accessed via this link:

Comparing the attainment of a cohort from one year to the next is difficult.  This is because course content and the way in which some courses are assessed can change, and every year group will have their own set of prior attainment at key stage 2.

The headline results in 2018 were as follows:

The EBacc result was higher than the national average for 2017 (24%), and compares well to local schools.  We were extremely proud of the individual successes achieved by some of our students, including those who attained top grade 9 qualifications.

Libby Brooke worked extremely hard to attain a fantastic six grade 9s, two grade 8s and two A*s.

Adam Parker is one of only 732 students in the country to achieve a full suite of top grades.  Remarkably, in addition to his nine grade 9s, he also attained two A*s, a truly amazing achievement. 

Jack Gibson, a key member of our school debating team, used the reasoning skills he developed to good effect in his exams, attaining a super set of results that featured six grade 9s and two grade 8s. 

Alice McNelly was our head girl, and her outstanding results – six grade 9s, two grade 8s and two A*s – demonstrate the way she was able to balance her studies and duties as head girl.

Summer press release:
