Examination Results

Aspiration is one of our core principles and this includes having high expectations of our students academically. Good examination results will prepare students for opportunity enabling them to move on to further and higher education including university and a successful career. High expectations, self-belief, hard work, independent learning and determination are key factors leading to high achievement.

The success is also testimony to the hard work, determination and commitment of the staff who are committed to supporting the students to achieve their very best. They are well qualified – continually developing professionally to ensure your child receives the best education possible.

Working alongside our partner primary schools has also meant students have improved their levels on joining us and will lead to further increases in attainment and progress.

Progress 8

Progress 8 aims to capture the progress a pupil makes from the end of primary school to the end of secondary school. It is a type of value added measure, which means that pupils’ results are compared to the actual achievements of other pupils with the same prior attainment. It is now considered the main measure in performance tables.

Attainment 8

Attainment 8 measures the achievement of a pupil across 8 qualifications including mathematics and English, 3 qualifications including sciences, computer science, history, geography and languages, and 3 other additional approved qualifications.
