GCSE Results

The College is proud of its standing as one of the top state-funded schools in England for the percentage of pupils achieving the English Baccalaureate (EBacc). The Minister of State for School Standards congratulated the school on our ‘very high standard of achievement’ in the EBacc during our GCSE examinations in 2016.

The English Baccalaureate is awarded to pupils who achieve at least a grade C in six subjects: English, Mathematics, two Sciences (Core and Additional), a Humanity (either History or Geography) and a Language.

Overall, in 2016 the percentage of A*/A grades achieved increased by almost 6% and 78% of pupils gained at least 5 good GCSEs (A* - C) including both English and Maths.

*It should be noted that official Key Stage 2 prior attainment data for pupils at the end of Key Stage 4 is only available for 143 of 166 pupils in the cohort (those who attended state-funded primary schools) - this will be the data used by DfE/RAISEonline to measure progress. Unofficial Key Stage 2 data has been obtained from independent primary schools and is also shown here to judge achievement of the full cohort
