BTEC Results

This was a particularly strong year for our BTEC Level 3 results where the average grade was a Distinction (equivalent to Grade A) with 65% of grades awarded being Distinction* or Distinction (A*/A)

GCSE Results

The school has a Progress 8 score of +0.18 (above national average) but when legacy qualifications are taken into account (some of the exams that pupils took in Years 9 and 10), this rises to +0.31.

  • 71% of pupils achieved 4+ in English and Maths
  • 46% of pupils achieved a 5+ in English and Maths
  • 26% of pupils achieved three or more 9 – 7 (A*/A) grades

71% of pupils achieved 5 GCSEs 9 – 4 (A* - C) including English and Maths

Our EBACC score and percentage of pupils entered is adversely affected by the majority of our pupils taking their MFL GCSEs in Year 9. This means that their results have not been counted in performance measures because, until the summer of 2020, the qualifications they have held will have been from the legacy specifications.

This does not affect results for pupils but does have an impact for the school. If these results were taken into account, our EBACC entry would be 50% for last year’s Year 11 and will be 80% for the current Year 11.
