All of the GCSEs taken by our Year 11 students were the newer more challenging exams which are graded 9-1. Our students achieved very good results, significantly higher than the national average at every grade from 9 to 5.

Because of the way grades were awarded this year, there will be no DfE performance tables for 2020. This means the headline measure of “Progress 8” cannot be calculated because it is based on comparison to national figures which are not available. The following tables show some of our other KS4 headline measures and a breakdown of GCSE grades achieved in 2020.

Attainment 8 (average score per student) 60.4
