At the moment the most important measure of a school’s exam success is the percentage of its pupils who achieve 5 or more GCSEs at grades A*-C including Mathematics and English. This year 66% of our pupils achieved this measure giving us our best results ever.

But this is not a one off; it is part of a trend of improvement which has continued for the past five years.

Other important measures are: the percentage of pupils who achieve 3 or more GCSEs at grades A*-A and the percentage of pupils who achieve 5 or more GCSEs at grades A*-G.

Between 2005 and 2013 our performance against these measures steadily improved to the point where, in 2015 we are above the national average on all these measures.

The reason for this sustained improvement is the effort we put into making sure that all of our lessons were of a high standard. Success comes from teachers using well proven teaching methods, with high expectations for all pupils and who have positive working relationships.

Over the next couple of years, as other changes we have made to what we teach and how we assess students take effect, these measures will continue to rise.
