Academic Outcomes

Ib results day 2023 4Our Mission - ‘Education is Success’ - is realised as students fulfil their potential and progress to their preferred destination. Year 13 students typically achieve well enough to have a choice of university offers with students progressing to elite universities and courses. Year 11 students consistently make above average levels of progress (+0.43 Progress 8 in 2022), leading to growing numbers progressing to International Baccalaureate programmes in our successful Sixth Form or to competitive courses at other providers. An above average proportion (72% 2023, compared to ~67% nationally) of students achieve standard passes in Maths and English, allowing them to progress to Level 3 courses.  

 

Sixth Form International Baccalaureate Programmes

In 2023, destinations for Year 13 students included Cambridge, Oxford, UCL, Bristol, Nottingham and other Russell Group universities as well as highly competitive apprenticeships.

Year 11 Outcomes

In 2023, outcomes at Key Stage 4 have broadly returned to levels seen in 2019, following years where assessment and grading has been affected by the pandemic. Given the uneven impact on school and college performance data, the Government has advised that direct comparisons should not be made between the performance data for one school or college and another, or to data from previous years.
