Exam results – ensuring our students achieve their full potential.

As an academy, we work hard to ensure that our students achieve grades that reflect their potential. In 2019 our students excelled, achieving outstanding results across a breadth of subjects.

The table below illustrates our Progress 8 scores for 2019 and 2018. Progress 8 measures the performance of our students compared to the national progress of students with the same starting points across 8 subjects, as prescribed by the government. As you can see, in 2019 our students made – on average – around three fifths of a grade more progress in each of these 8 subjects than their national counterparts with the same starting point. This places the school in the top DfE category for progress (‘well above average’) and should place the school in the top 8% of schools nationally when final data is published.

Please note that the data below is not final confirmed data.
