Results 2017

Results are provisional as we await national comparisons in relation to progress.

Congratulations to our Year 11 students of 2017.  Despite the challenges of huge change to the English and Maths examinations and far tougher exams this year, we saw some fantastic results    and an overall improvement year on year.

English and Maths (Basics) improved by 6% on last year’s results – 63 students achieved Grade 9-5 in both English and Maths with 27 students achieving level 9-7 (the top grades) in either subject.  Maths performance this year significantly improved and of particular note was the performance of disadvantaged students – the number of students (disadvantaged) who gained a 4+ in Maths rose by 20%.

Our disadvantaged students’ attainment, particularly in English & Maths Basic (4+) improved by 5% (compared to 2016), thereby reducing the differences between themselves and their peers nationally.  Similarly, SEND students achieving the basics measure doubled, year on year.

Some exceptional improvements for subjects such as French and History, as well as Business and Media – typically between 25% and 33% of students gained the top grades, an A*-B in these subjects.  Those achieving the EBAC also doubled compared to the previous year.

The school’s continuing strengths can be seen in subjects such as Chemistry, Physics and Biology (Triple Science), Dance, Construction, PE and Health & Social.  The contribution of other subjects ensures our students attain well across a broad and balanced curriculum.
