The table below shows the latest progress and attainment measures compared to last year and national. Please note that 4+ and 5+ cannot be exactly compared with last year’s C+ due to the change in grades.
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.

The table below shows how the old letter grades compare with the new number grades in GCSE qualifications.
- The first new exams for GCSE Maths and English were taken in summer 2017. The new GCSE Science exams will start in summer 2018.
- There’s no Foundation Level in the new English GCSEs — students of all abilities will take the same exams.
- There are fewer course options in the new Science GCSEs. Most students will either take the new Combined Science course (worth two GCSEs) or three separate GCSEs in Biology, Chemistry and 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.
- Coursework and practical assessments play a much smaller part in the new GCSE courses — which means most of the marks are won or lost in the exams 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.
