We take great pride in the achievements of our students in the national summer examinations every year. The level of achievement at GCSE has continued to improve due to the professionalism of our staff, the application of our students and the support of parents.
We are very pleased with the achievements of our Year 11 class of 2017. In a changing GCSE environment, our students rose to the challenge and worked hard in partnership with their teachers to succeed.
76% of all students secured Grades 4 to 9 (in the new grading system) in English and Mathematics
75% achieved at least 5 standard passes (A*-C) including English and Mathematics (4-9)
25% of all grades were A or A* (or Grades 7, 8 or 9)
33% of students achieved standard EBACC passes and 28% of students achieved strong EBACC passes
To ensure that students are prepared for their actual GCSE exams, throughout KS4, there are several times where planned practice exams take place. These are published within the curriculum booklets sent out at the start of September and on the parent App key dates.
For each examination, including the practice exams, students are given a personalised timetable indicating the time, length and location of each exam as well as their set number.
It is essential that students record a note of the time, location and seat number of each exam, as these are different for different exams.
Students are expected to arrive at the exam location 10 minutes before the start time of the exam
To meet with the JCQ expectations, all electronic equipment, including mobile phones will be handed in before the start of the exam, pencil cases need to be transparent and clear bottles of water with no label are allowed.
