2016/17 Exam results

Exam results 2016-17

We are delighted to announce another year of examination success achieved by our students, in the Academic Year 2016/17. Our students all achieved the ‘expected progress’ on their learning plans, regardless of their needs, with many making ‘exceptional progress’. We have also continued the trend of our students progressing on to further education or apprenticeships.

GCSE Results

19 GCSEs were taken with 100% of students achieving A*- G grades and 67% of grades were passes at A* – C or the equivalent. Both students who took English Language achieved a strong pass or higher and four out of the six students who took Mathematics achieved a pass or above. Apart from English Language and Mathematics, subjects taken include Science, English Literature, Geography, History, ICT, Art and Design, Psychology, Religious Studies and Food Technology.

Students achieved A/S in mathematics.

Other Results

Accreditations were also achieved through Cambridge National Award, Btec Level 2, Digital Applications Level 1 and 2, Functional Skills (English and Maths) Level 1 and 2, NCFE qualifications and Entry Level qualifications.

External verification confirms that there is very good evidence to show that, from very shaky starting points on entry to the school, the majority of students go on to achieve well at KS4 and KS5 and are able to move on to further education and training with good opportunities ahead of them.

All our students have access to a wide range of accreditation, and outcomes continue to be good because of the pathways to accreditation and the next phase of learning or training. There is very good evidence of our pupils achieving an appropriate destination.
