We take great pride in the achievements of our students particularly in this extraordinary year when it was decided that Centre Assessed Grades or a Grade higher given by an algorithm were to be awarded for GCSE's and completed components were to be used for GCSE Equivalent courses.Â Â
75% of all students secured Grades 4 to 9 in English and Mathematics
50% of all students secured Grades 5 to 9 in English and Mathematics
29% of all GCSE grades were 7 to 9
50% of students were entered for the EBacc (Eng, Maths, Science Geog OR History and an MFL)
39% of students achieved standard (Grades 4+) EBacc passes and 26% of students achieved strong (5+) EBacc passes
EBacc Average Point Score = 4.82
Attainment 8 = 52.08
96% of students stayed in education (2017 leavers)Â
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 seat 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.
We are still waiting for the exam timetable for June 2021 to be confirmed etc by exam boards and that we will send Year 11 students and Parents the details when it is available.
