Ofsted and Data – Our Rapidly Improving Exam Results

Since the Academy opened in September 2010 we have worked hard to raise the aspirations and achievements of all our students. We have seen some fantastic achievements this year in subject areas and for individual students.

Our Results 2015

•    51.4% of students achieved  5+ A* – C grades

•    45.8% of students achieved  5+ A* – C including English and Maths

•    75.7% of students achieved  3 levels or more progress for English

•    50.7% of students achieved  3 levels or more progress for Maths

•    7.6% of students  achieved the English Baccalaureate

The English Baccalaureate was introduced as a performance measure in the 2010 performance tables. It is not a qualification in itself. The measure recognises where pupils have secured a C grade or better across a core of academic subjects English, mathematics, history or geography, the sciences and a language.

We are delighted to report success in our 2015 examination results.  The English department continues to perform above national averages for the second year running. Maths has demonstrated great gains, with an increase of 6.7% in their levels of progress. Several subjects have exceeded national averages for A*-C including; Dance by 32.7%; French by 14.9% and GCSE PE by 29.9%; English Language by 4%. GCSE Computing are able to boast a 100% A*-C   pass rate, which is 36.4% higher than the national average in this subject.

In 2015 the percentage of students who achieved 3A* – A increased by 1.1%.  A range of subject areas contributed to the improvement in this indicator.  For example, in ICT 45.5% of students achieved A*- A.  Just under a third of BTEC Sport students achieved A*- A which was a 10.3% increase on 2014 results.  One quarter of students in BTEC Dance achieved A*- A grades which is an improvement of 9.6% when compared to 2014 outcomes.  GCSE Physical Education achieved 23.5% A*- A, improving by 17.9% on 2014 and 3.5% higher than 2015 national averages.  BTEC Art and Design improved on their 2014 A*-A figures by 10.2% and Religious Studies by 11.6%. French improved their A*-A by 15.6% when compared to 2014 and exceeded the 2015 national average by 4.5%.  Finally English Language A*-A exceeded the national average of A*-A by 8.3%.

We are also very proud of individuals in Year 11 who demonstrated that applying a sustained effort to their studies both in class, during their attendance at period 6 sessions and at home resulted in a set of fantastic results.

We wish all of the class of 2015 the very best of luck in all they do in the future.
