Results and Pupil Premium

Exam results – ensuring our students achieve their full potential.

As an academy, we work hard to ensure that our students achieve grades that reflect their potential. In 2017 our students excelled, achieving outstanding results, despite a challenging and evolving national picture.

The table below illustrates our provisional Progress 8 scores for 2017 and published results for 2016. Progress 8 measures the performance of our students compared to the national progress of students with the same starting points across 8 subjects, as prescribed by the government. As you can see, we expect that our students will have made almost two thirds of a grade more progress than their national counterparts with the same starting point. We expect this to put us in the top 5% of schools nationally once full national data is published later in the year.



Measure 2017* 2016 National 2016
Progress 8 0.65 0.31 -0.03
Progress 8: English 0.27 0.25 -0.04
Progress 8: Maths 0.28 0.53 -0.02
Progress 8: EBacc 0.30 0.33 -0.02
Progress 8: Open 1.51 0.17 -0.04


*Please note that official Progress 8 data has not yet been officially published by the DfE for 2017. The above data is therefore provisional until published by the DfE.

Our KS4 results in 2017 are as follows:

  • Progress 8 score 0.65
  • Attainment 8 score: 50.6
  • Percentage of students with a strong pass (grade 5 or above) in English and Maths: 47%
  • Percentage of students with a standard pass (grade 4 or above) in English and Maths: 67% (in 2016 the equivalent national average for C+ was 59%).
  • Percentage of students achieving the English Baccalaureate (grade 5 or above for reformed subjects and grade C or above for unreformed subjects): 25% (33% of students entered). 2016 National average was 23% (37% entered).
  • Destinations: Please note that destinations data is published in arrears. The data below relates to students who completed Key Stage 4 in 2014.

Pupils staying in education or employment for at least two terms after Key Stage 4: 95% (England Average 94%)

Please note that much of the above data is provisional and is unlikely to reflect what will initially be published in the performance tables, due to the impact of results that have been remarked and the resulting impacted grades.


Our KS5 results in 2017 are as follows:

A-level ALPS 3 = Top 25% schools for A-level progress

BTEC ALPS 2 = Top 10% schools for progress in vocational subjects

  • Progress compared to other students across the country: TBC (published in due course)
  • Average grade students achieve – A-level: C, Applied General: D* (please note that these grades are subject to change following confirmation from the DfE of the official cohort later in the year)
  • Retention (the proportion of students who get to the end of the main programme of study that they enrolled on): A-level: 95%; Applied General: 65% (note that these are 2016 figures, as data isn’t published until much later in the academic year)
  • Students staying in education or employment for at least two terms after KS5: 92% (England average 88%). Please note – as for KS4, this data is published in arrears and refers to those that finished their study in 2014.
  • Please note that our Maths and English data is suppressed due to small student numbers.
