Summer Examination Results 2019
A huge congratulations to all our students who sat examinations this summer. A tremendous thank you must go to all our staff and parents who have supported and encouraged the students towards achieving another year of very pleasing results.
We are delighted for the students themselves who have worked extremely hard, many giving up their Easter holidays to attend extra revision lessons organised by staff. They have thoroughly deserved their success and have laid a solid foundation for future achievement.
Our overall pass rate at A Level was 97.35%. The Average Grade achieved was a grade C, which was in line with previous years.
At GCSE, over 10% of grades were at Grade 9 with 26.8% at Grade 8 or 9. 36.4% of students achieved Grades 9 – 7 including Mathematics and English with the proportion of all Grades 9 to 7 at 47.6%. The proportion of students achieving 5 Grades 9 – 5 including Mathematics and English was 88.1% (national average 43%). That figure increased to 96.5% at Grades 9 – 4 including Mathematics and English.
In Mathematics, English Language and English Literature we performed very well indeed. The improvement in our Mathematics education is demonstrated by achieving 44.8% of grades at Grade 9 to 7. In English Language we achieved a Grade 9 to 7 percentage of 40.6% and in English Literature this was 52.1%.
50.4% of our students attained the requirements of the EBacc with 74.1% of our students entering this measure (national average 40%). The average point score on in the English Baccalaureate was 6.25 (national average 4.07). However, we will continue to maintain a broad and balanced curriculum for all students who have considerable success in all subjects at GCSE.
The new performance measures of Attainment 8 and Progress 8 were very pleasing and an improvement on last year. Our Attainment 8 score achieved this year is 6.6 (national average 46.55) with our provisional Progress 8 at +0.42. The progress 8 measure for our disadvantaged students was +0.30 (national average -0.45).
