Congratulations to our Year 11 students of 2021.  Despite the huge challenges facing our students this year, they have done us proud, with continued improvements in attainment and lots of top grades and success stories.

Our top ten Castle View students achieved 95 GCSE strong passes between them, 81 of which were the grades 9-7 (or equivalent), which are the highest grades available.  The top 7 students achieved 10 grade 9s and 25 grade 8s between them.

English and maths attainment continues to be high.  102 students achieved a grade 9-4 in English, with 81 in maths; 76 students achieved a grade 9-5 in English, with 47 in maths; 37 students achieved the top grades (9-7) in English, with 11 in maths.  78 students achieved a double pass in science.  The geography and history pass rates were maintained having improved significantly the previous year.  The French pass rate improved again by 15%.

Our disadvantaged students’ overall attainment measure continues to rise and progress estimations indicate that differences between themselves and their peers nationally are reducing.

Other improvements include subjects such as Art (up 3%), Drama (up 1%), Hair & Beauty (still 100%) and Sport (up 13%).  The school’s continuing improvements can also be seen in the following subjects:

Construction                     - 100% Pass with 51% Merit-Distinction.

Health & Fitness               - 71% Pass with 57% Merit-Distinction.

Health & Social Care        - 98% Pass with 36% Merit-Distinction.

Business Studies              - 67% Pass with 58% Merit and 34% Distinction.

Music RSL                           - 93% grades 9-4 with 41% achieving grades 9-5.

 

As a result, the estimated progress in the ‘Open Bucket’ options continues to improve.  Our students attain well across a broad and balanced curriculum.
