We were delighted with our Key Stage 5 outcomes which showed us in ALPS 2 for Year 12 and ALPS 4 (very close to a 3) for Year 13. This has led to outstanding progression to university with double the national average attending Russell Group universities including our first girl to attend Cambridge (Chemical Engineering) and one student studying medicine. This is the second year running that we have sent student to Cambridge and medicine. Our Sixth Form numbers are at a record level and are rising.
We were extremely pleased to once again be above national averages for the combined English and Maths outcomes. 45% of students gained 9-5 in both English and Maths and 69% gained 9-4. English gained an ALPS 4 and Maths and ALPS 3. Given that boys’ performance nationally is notably lower than girls, we are very pleased with this performance which is part of a long trend of strong outcomes.
Our predicted Progress 8 score is +0.1 which is an improvement of +0.3 from last year. We are naturally very pleased, Given that the boys’ national average last year was -0.23, we are very happy to be so far above this figure. Our Maths P8 score is particularly pleasing at +0.4. The scores in all four buckets rose by approximately +0.3 from the previous year which shows that our impact is being felt across the curriculum.
