Highest KS4 Results Ever

Our 5+A*- C KS4 pupils receive GCSE results 2013 grades including English and Maths matched last year's record high at 66% and 26.2% of students achieved 3+A*-A grades which again matched the highest we have ever achieved.

The government now measures schools on the progress that students make between KS2 and KS4 and expects students to make 3 levels of progress in the key subjects of English and Maths.

This year students made record progress in Maths with 73% of students making three levels progress (up 1% on 2012), and 79% in English making three levels progress (up 3% on 2012).

More records were broken with our English Baccalaureate score which measures how successful students were in the key areas of Maths, English, Science, Languages and Humanities. A massive 29% of students achieved this which is 11% up on last year, (the national average in 2012 was 16%)

Many students are now staying on into our sixth form, some are going to college and a number of students were successful in gaining apprenticeships. We hope all the students will be successful no matter which career path they have chosen and congratulate them on their success.

Students are going to study courses at a full range of universities all over the country and will be studying subjects including Physics with Nuclear Technology (Nottingham Trent University), Illustration and Animation (Coventry University), American Studies (University of Winchester), Modern Languages (University of Sheffield) and International Relations(University of Edinburgh). Some have been accepted on higher level apprenticeships and students have been very successful in reaching the grades needed to progress their careers.
