Exam Results

Results at Key Stage 4

Progress 8 and Attainment 8 are two measures that schools will be judged against.They are designed to encourage schools to offer a broad and balanced curriculum at KS4.

Progress 8 is based on students’ progress measured across eight subjects:

  • English;
  • Mathematics;
  • Three other English Baccalaureate (EBacc) subjects (sciences, computer science, geography, history and languages).

Three further subjects, which can be from the range of EBacc subjects, or can be any other GCSE or approved, high-value arts, academic, or vocational qualification.

Attainment 8 is the students' average achievement across these eight subjects. From 2016, the floor standard will be based on schools' results on the Progress 8 measure.

We have had excellent performances from both individual pupils and across many subject areas with a record number of high grades. For example two of our top scoring students from 2019 gained an average grade of an 8 (old A*) across all subjects taken and have now joined our ever growing sixth form. We would like to congratulate students and staff for their efforts and parents for their continued support.
