Our Exam results - KS4 & Post 16 (2016)
This year was another fantastic year for our KS4 results. A greater proportion of George Salter pupils achieved the English Baccalaureate than last year’s National average. The same was true of the new basics measure.
At GCSE, 59% of year 11 students achieved GCSEs passes in English and Mathematics with A*-C grades. This figure is a slight drop on last year, though there has been a national drop due to changes in examinations, etc. Despite this, this was still a great achievement.
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.
