Performance and Results
Standards are rising rapidly….Pupils made above-average levels of progress. Ofsted 2018
Outcomes for GCSE and A Levels in 2020 are unique in that for the first time, they are based on Centre Assessed Grades as students were not able to sit examinations due to the Covid 19 Pandemic. All schools went through a rigorous moderating process and submitted grades that teachers judged would be the most likely outcome if students had been able to sit their exams.
Initially, Ofqual had planned to use an algorithm to further moderate grades to ensure they were more in line with prior attainment of the cohort and the school. However, these calculated grades were dropped in favour of the Centre Assessed Grades.
This has resulted overall in a degree of grade inflation and therefore a boost to results, but we remain confident that we followed the process diligently and with integrity and that these very positive outcomes are still realistic and recognise the hard work, knowledge and effort of our students.
At GCSE, 31% of entries achieved the highest possible grades of 9-7 (A*-A) and 67% of entries achieved 9-5 (a strong pass).
At A level, we had many exceptional students: 31% of grades were A*-A and 54% of students achieved A*-B.
