Summer Examination Results 2017
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 97.07% and our percentage of A* grades was 3.72%. The Average Point Score per entry achieved was 31.94, which is broadly in line with previous years. The proportion of A*/A grades was 19.95% (an improvement on 2016) with nine 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 took AS examinations in all subjects.
At GCSE we achieved 15.13% A* (or 9 to 8) grades with the proportion of A*/A (or 9 to 7) grades being 43.23% (which compares favourably with the National figure of 22.1%) and a pass rate of 72.91% at A*/B (or 9 to 6). 99.28% of our students achieved 5A* to C including English and Mathematics. Seven of our students achieved only A* and A grades (or 9 to 7) in their GCSE examinations. Fourteen students achieved 6 or more A* (or 9 to 8) grades across their subjects.
In the reformed subjects (Maths, English Language and English Literature) we performed very well indeed. In Maths 38.13% achieved 9 to 7 against a National picture of 19.9%. In English Language we achieved 5.76% of the top grade 9 compared with the National figure of 2.6% and the 9 to 7 figure of 35.25% was much better than the National figure of 16.8%. English Literature was even better with 10.07% of our students achieving the top grade (compared to National of 3.3%) and for the 9 to 7 range we achieved 43.17% (compared to the National figure of 19.1%).
The new performance measures of Attainment 8 and Progress 8 were pleasing with an Attainment 8 score of 62.7 and our Progress 8 score of +0.25 indicates that our students are making significantly above the average progress required by the end of GCSE.
57% of our students attained the requirements of the EBacc, in line with the figures for 2015/16. 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.
