Exam Results

In 2017, the Department for Education introduced a new grading scale for GCSEs. Numerical awards are now given to pupils in each subject – grading from 9-1 (9 being the highest attainment). The purpose was to allow greater differentiation between pupils and to also help distinguish the new GCSEs from previous versions. The exams have new, more demanding content, which have been developed by government and the exam boards. A Grade 4 is a ‘standard pass’ and a Grade 5 is a ‘strong pass’.

We are extremely proud of our learners, who have achieved our best ever results.
