- The link below shows an annual breakdown of results so this can be compared each year. Please note that since the grading system changed, it cannot be compared long range.
- Progress is the achievement made compared to what students are expected to achieve. A score of ‘0’ means that they have achieved what is expected. For a number of reasons, students don’t always achieve this – which is why individual understanding of circumstances must be had.
- Attainment are the actual scores linked to the grades achieved by students.

Please note that due to the national epidemic, the measures for Summer 2020 will not be nationally published. We will update our performance on the teacher assessed progress this year in due course.
Our school continues to improve and we have introduced a new curriculum to ensure this happens at a rapid pace. Students study a broad and balanced curriculum which enables them appropriate time to study key courses.
- Number grades were only in place nationally for Maths and English.
- All subjects apart from technology will follow the new number grading system this year.
- To understand what the new number grades mean see the table below.

- Absence data covers pupils aged 5 to 15 on 31 August 2018, and is for the full 2018/2019 academic year including the second half of the summer term.Â There is a lag on published data but the school meets national benchmarks.
The table below shows how the old letter grades compare with the new number grades in GCSE qualifications.
- TheÂ first new examsÂ for GCSE Maths and English were taken in summerÂ 2017. The new GCSE Science exams will start in summerÂ 2018.
- There’sÂ no Foundation LevelÂ in the newÂ EnglishÂ GCSEs â€” students of all abilities will takeÂ the same exams.
- There are fewer course options in the new Science GCSEs. Most students will either take the newÂ Combined ScienceÂ course (worth two GCSEs) or three separate GCSEs inÂ Biology,Â ChemistryÂ andÂ Physics.
- Some of the new grades match up with the old ones. A low Grade 1 is comparable to a low Grade G, a low Grade 4 is comparable to a low Grade C and a low Grade 7 is comparable to a low Grade A.
- CourseworkÂ andÂ practical assessmentsÂ play a muchÂ smaller partÂ in the new GCSE courses â€” which means most of the marks are won or lostÂ in the examsÂ at the end of Year 11.
If you would like further information or support on the new system, please contact the school and we will be more than happy to help.
