Congratulations to all our students who sat examinations and who were highly successful this summer.
A tremendous thanks must go to all of our staff who have supported and encouraged the students to achieve another year of very pleasing results. Further, students could not achieve this success if they did not have supportive and dedicated parents.
We are delighted for the students themselves who have worked extremely hard, many giving up their Easter holidays to attend extra lessons organised by staff. They have deserved their success and have laid a solid foundation for future achievement.
Our overall pass rate at A Level was 99.01% and our percentage of A* grades was 5.26%. The Average Point Score per entry achieved was 220.95, which is broadly in line with previous years. The proportion of A*/A grades was 17.43% with four of our students achieving only A*/A grades in their A levels.
There is no AS examination report this year as due to the reform of A Levels and the change to linear courses not all of the students sat AS examinations in all subjects.
At GCSE we achieved 13.47% A* grades with the proportion of A*/A grades being 47.83% and a pass rate of 80.61% at A*/B. 96.99% of our students achieved 5A* to C including English and Mathematics. Six of our students achieved only A* and A grades in their GCSE examinations and one student achieved 10 A* grades, an A and a B. Seven students achieved 6 or more A* grades across their subjects.
The new performance measures of Attainment 8 and Progress 8 were pleasing with an Attainment 8 score of 65.1 (compared to a National figure of 48.5) and out Progress 8 score of +0.07 indicates that our students are making at least the progress required by the end of GCSE.
64.66% of our students fulfilled the requirements of the EBacc, an increase from 50.68% in comparison with 2014/15. 72% of our student’s chose the correct combination of subjects to qualify for the EBacc in spite of us not compelling students to do so. Most of our students achieved very highly in subjects such as Economics and Religious Studies which are subjects not covered by the EBacc and we continue to have considerable success in the creative subjects.
The destinations measure was 99% either continuing in Education or Employment compared to a National figure of 94%.
