Examination Performance

In the extraordinary year that was 2020, exam results also happened in an extraordinary way.  Centre Assessed Grades (CAGs) were provided by schools to exam boards and these were largely the grades that students received, although some were altered by exam boards. Fortunately we were in a good position to set these grades, due to our real knowledge and understanding of our students and what they are capable of achieving and our clear assessment systems.

Given the nature of the 2020 results we have chosen to present them alongside our previous years’ data. This shows that our 2020 results were an improvement on previous years.

Progress 8 for 2020 is not available as this is calculated by the government, and has not happened this year. When compared to 2019 data our P8 would have been 0.22, in line with our 2017 results before the curriculum changed.

Although the results were awarded rather than examined, we were delighted that staff and students had, yet again, worked together so that our students received the grades they deserved.

Together we achieved success! Well done to all.
