Exams

Summer exam performance embeds the school’s reputation for high performance.

Congratulations to all students and staff on the 2016 summer’s exam results. All A level students gained their first or second choice university place and GCSE results bucked the downward national trend. Whilst the English and mathematics crossover fell by 2.1% nationally to 54%, the school showed a 7% rise to 62% this year. Furthermore, the school’s progress figures were outstanding with the students achieving a progress 8 figure of +0.26. This means that, on average, every student achieved nearly one quarter of a grade higher in every subject than they were expected.  This is a fantastic achievement.

At A level 98% of all grades were A*-E with just under 70% at A*-C. The average grade profile for A levels was BBC whilst the performance in vocational subjects was truly outstanding with 60% of grades being either distinction * or distinctions.
