Key Stage 5 Results 2017

We have another fantastic set of results this year, testament to the hard work and dedication shown by our students and staff. Our students can be proud that they have achieved the best progress scores since the sixth form opened, demonstrating our commitment to excellence for all students.

This year 45% of all grades were at A* – B and an overall 99% pass rate. 77% of students achieved A* – C (or equivalent) grades in all their A Levels which is an exceptional achievement.

15 students achieved the equivalent of at least 3 A* – A grades and all of our students achieved at least 2 qualifications. BTEC average grade is Distinction*-.

Students are progressing onto a wide-range of destinations including university and higher apprenticeships, with Charlie Wright going on to study Chemistry at Oxford.

We are overjoyed that the A Level and BTEC results continue our upward trend and are excellent again this year as our sixth form flourishes. We wish all of our students well as they move on to University or new careers.

KS5 Progress Explained

The post 16 progress measure shows the relationship between students’ GCSE performance and their performance in level 3 qualifications (i.e. A levels and Level 3 BTECs).

For example a score of 0 equals expected progress, and a score of +0.5 would mean students in the sixth form on average scoring half a grade more than expected in every subject.

Our score of +0.09 for A levels is therefore above expected progress nationally. Our score of +0.35 for vocational qualifications is well above expected progress nationally.
