Exam Results 2020

We have described the achievements of our year 11 and year 14 pupils below. Some of this information is required by the Department for Education and Ofsted.  If you have any comments or queries about the information on this page or would like any clarification, please do not hesitate to contact us.

This year was quite a different challenge as our Y11 pupils did not sit exams in the Summer term due to the Coronavirus lockdown. Instead we were asked to submit teacher assessment grades. These grades were based on our knowledge of the pupils, their performance in unit tests, mock exams and their course work.

When the results came into school in August we were very pleased to see that only one of our teacher grades had been altered and that grade had been raised.

We are very proud to be a school for pupils with Special Educational Needs and have high expectations for all of our pupils. We aim to provide a breadth of opportunity and encourage high levels of participation.

There were 45 pupils in y11 and all gained at least one external accreditation or qualification. This year the Government did not publish school performance comparison tables but you can Click on the link below to see our previous progress 8 scores and how we compare to other similar schools.
