“Pupils’ outcomes are outstanding. From typically low starting points, pupils make very strong progress over time. This is especially impressive considering the range of complex needs the majority of pupils have, and the disrupted educational histories that most have experienced. ” – Ofsted, February 2018
Exam Results and Accreditations
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 due to the pathways to accreditation and the next phase of learning or training. There is very good evidence of our pupils achieving an appropriate destination.
Exam results 2019-20
We are very proud of our students who, under the difficult circumstances, have again celebrated another year of examination success. This is again in line with Ofsted’s judgement that, “As a result of excellent teaching, pupils of all abilities and needs make outstanding progress over time”. Our students 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 to further education or training.
