The Key Stage 4 prospectus is now available. The choices form to be submitted is also available as a separate document for easy printing. Completed form need to be returned to the school by Tuesday 24th February.
The official DFE performance tables for the school for 2014 GCSE results have now been published and can be found here. This year has seen significant changes to the performance tables following the move to linear GCSEs and the changes made to which qualifications are included in the tables following the Wolf Review. In addition, these figures have used the ‘first-entry’ rule introduced half way through the two-year course which means they do not actually show the real achievement of our students.
The actual GCSE Maths A*-C percentage figure was 73%, the actual GCSE English percentage figure was 75% and the 5+ A*-C including English and Maths figure was 62.2% (not 56% as under first entry). These figures show a good improvement on 2013 results. This year Ofsted are using the first-entry figure for all official statements and not the actual achievement of the students. Given the new regulations, such early entry may seem mistaken. However we believe that we should continue to do the best for our students rather than be restricted by technical regulations.
