Our Academy

Exam Results 2018

“Overall outcomes achieved by pupils have improved rapidly… pupils achievement is now very good.”

“The progress made by pupils in English and maths by the end of Key Stage 4 is exceptional.”

(Ofsted, 2016)

As a result of high quality teaching, learning and assessment across the curriculum, the academy consistently achieves excellent progress at GCSE.

Value Added indicators have been consistently very high, placing the academy in top 20% of schools and academies nationally for the past 4 years. Based on the most recent GCSE results, we anticipate that the academy’s Progress 8 Score will remain highly positive in 2018.  This clearly demonstrates the success of our innovative curriculum and represents the high levels of progress that our students make in a wide range of subject areas.
