Key Stage Results

 

2015 GCSE and A Level Results

GCSE

GCSE results demonstrated some outstanding results for many of our year 11 students. The overall attainment results were below expectations mainly due to the grade boundary change in GCSE Maths for grade C on the Higher Tier paper which moved from 57 marks to 65 to gain that grade. This affected many schools across the country. However, expected progress, in particular in English, was outstanding. The overall value added is 1025 which means that students achieved almost one grade above expectations.

All students were successful in gaining a place in the sixth form, going to college or embarking on an apprenticeship.

A Level/ L3 BTEC

The overall pass rate at A Level was 96% which is our best achievement to date and 100% of the students who took a L3 BTEC course passed with the majority gaining a distinction or a merit. These results enabled all the 38 students who had applied to UCAS were successful in gaining a place at university to study the course of their choice. We are delighted that the academy is now enabling so many young women to gain a place at university, not only at one of the local universities, but also at ones further afield, including Russell Group ones. In addition our students are applying for a wide range of courses: Anthropology, Law, English Language, Psychology, Medical and Pharmacological Sciences, Physics, Analytical Chemistry and Forensic Science, Event Management, Mathematics, Social Care and Sociology. The other students who did not want to go to university moved onto college or gained an apprenticeship.

We would all like to congratulate all of our students who gained their GCSEs, A Levels and BTECs in 2015. We are all extremely proud of you  and wish you well for the future.
