Year 11 GCSE Results 2016
In a highly competitive examination framework, students need to work extremely hard to achieve the top grades and we are thrilled to see so many of students reaching these standards. As a fully comprehensive school with over 70% of students in receipt of the pupil premium, we’re pleased to have made progress on our outcomes from last year.
The key outcomes using the new measures are as follows:
The percentage of students gaining grades A*-C in both Eng and Maths is 45%; the percentage of students securing A*-C in all five EBacc subjects (English, Maths, Science, Languages, Humanities) is 25%, a significant jump from 11.5% last year. Our Attainment 8 grade is C-; this represents the average of the best 8 grades for every student. Progress 8 is still being calculated nationally; we will add this in as soon as we can provide an accurate figure.
Our A/A* grades have increased significantly and we have achieved more than double the previous record for A* grades . Our strongest individual results include the following:
