Examination Results 2017

Examination results this year have yet again been extremely positive and congratulations are in order for both our KS4 and KS5 students.

This year sees the first results of the new reformed A Levels where AS and A Level has been decoupled. There are a small number of Legacy AS subjects which were taken, these qualifications will be reformed in 2019. Standalone AS subjects were also taken by a small number of students.

The 2017 results also reflect the changes to reformed GCSE English Literature, English Language and Mathematics qualifications. These subjects are awarded in grades 9-1 whilst the remainder of GCSEs continue to be awarded with traditional A*-E grades. The way school’s results are being published has also changed in light of the numerical grades and results are now given as a ‘standard pass’ (grade 4 and above) and a ‘strong pass’ (at grade 5 and above).

Despite these major changes our students have performed exceptionally well and this is reflected in our exceptional examination results.
