Prospectus

In 2017 Year 11 students took reformed GCSEs in maths and English. The average point scores for maths and English cannot therefore be compared between 2016 and 2017. The new 'Attainment 8' measure was also calculated differently in 2017, so direct comparison cannot be made between 2016 and 2017.

Almost all subjects taken in 2018 were the new reformed GCSEs.

2018 results are provisional, and we are awaiting the publication of progress / value-added measures.
