A level and GCSE results 2015

We are very happy with our A level results. Over 20% of A level and equivalent grades were at A/A* and 15% of A level grades were of this standard. This represents our ‘best ever’. In addition, 70% of grades were A*-C and 58% of A level grades were at this level. 99% of A level grades were A*-E.

At GCSE, 61% of learners achieved 5A*-C grades with 15% of learners achieving 5 A*-A grades. Additionally, 45% learners gained 5 A*-C including English and Maths. Whilst that represents excellent outcomes for our most able and is in fact the highest proportion of learners ever attaining those top grades the headline measure is obviously not as strong as we were hoping for. The reasons behind it are a drop in English results down to 53% from 68% last year due to changes in grade boundaries on the iGCSE English qualification. The school is currently appealing a large number of outcomes. Maths results were good at 61% and Science results exceptional with 69% of all grades at A*-C and 24% of grades at A or A*.

Elsewhere, our foundation GCSE subjects performed well and our school value added and new progress 8 measure are predicted to be strong according to our SISRA data analysis software at 1023 and 0.22 respectively.

A big well done to all our learners.
