50% of our students gained at least one exam at 7+ or A/A* grade, showing that we offer a wide range of courses designed to help as many of our students as possible to find something they do well at.

This Summer 50% of the cohort did Triple Science (Biology, Chemistry and Physics), compared to about 24% nationally in 2016. Many of our students take A Levels in the science when they leave us.

As well as the academic subjects you would expect us to do well in, we are particularly proud of the achievements of our students in subjects as diverse as Art, Drama, Music, Photography, Psychology, Textiles, Catering, Resistant Materials, Construction, Engineering and Childcare. These subjects are not covered in detail in performance tables and so are often missed out when schools’ performance is being judged. In all of these subjects our students made more progress than their peers nationally.

 

*The measure of progress in English and maths has been phased out with the move to the new grading system. National data for this is from 2015.
