Our Exam results - KS4 & Post 16 (2017 - provisional)

KS4

 

students with their GCSE resultsThis year was another fantastic year for our KS4 results, with more than half (51%) achieving the Government’s new headline measure in both English and Maths, despite this being the first year of the new tougher exams.

Students had particular success in English with 76 % achieving a Grade 4 or better, with a 4 the new grade set by the Government as a pass. This is up on the equivalent proportion last year, when the old Grade C was still in place.

We are also now measured on what is referred to as Progress 8. This involves looking at the progress that young people make in 8 subjects during their time in the Academy. The estimated figures look pleasing. All said and done, this was still a superb achievement and we look forward to this year.

All of these results are remarkable and testament to the hard work of students, teachers, support staff and parents. We all have to work together to ensure that all young people achieve.
