Examination Results 2016
I am once again delighted for all our students who have achieved success in the summer 2016 examination season. The examinations system continues to be subject to change and we are very proud to celebrate the achievements of our students at all levels. Their successes are a credit to their hard work, the work and guidance of their teachers and the support of their parents.
At A Level over a third (35.2%) of the grades achieved by students are A* and A grades. 64.0% of the grades attained by students are A*, A or B and 87.3% of the grades are A* - C. This figure increased by 5% compared to 2015 and is the highest number of A*- C grades achieved by students in recent years. 99.7% of all entries are A*- E passes. Three students gained all A* outcomes in their chosen subjects with a further nineteen students gaining all A* and A grades.
At AS Level, seven students gained 3 or more of the top A grades with another fifteen students achieving all A and B grades. The percentage of A and B grades is 47.8%. 71.2% are grades A - C and 92.8 % of all entries are A - E passes.
This year has seen the introduction of new performance measures at GCSE. The new Progress 8 score for the school is 0.71. This means our Year 11 cohort achieved greater than average progress compared to similar students in other schools nationally by almost three-quarters of a grade per subject. The Attainment 8 score is 6.23 (this equates to an average of just over a B grade) while the percentage of students achieving the threshold in English and Maths (currently a C grade) is 88%. The percentage of students achieving the English Baccalaureate (EBACC) is 36.1%.
With regards to the previous measures used at GCSE, the percentage of students achieving 5+ A*- C grades is 90.5% and the percentage achieving 5+ A*- C including English and Maths is 87.3%. 92.6% made expected progress from KS2 to KS4 in English with 88.5% making expected progress in Maths from KS2 to KS4. A total of five students achieved all A* grades with a further fifteen achieving all A*- A grades in their chosen subject areas.
We wish all of our students every success in the next phase of their education or chosen career path.
