Key Stage 4 Examination Results 2017-2019

The information below indicates the school examination performance for the past 3 years.  This information is not current as the Academy is not required to publish its exam and assessment results from the 2019 to 2020 academic year as these have not been published as performance measures by the Secretary of State.

The Key stage 4 results for 2020 are a combination of the Centre Assessed Grade (CAG) or the ‘calculated grade’ which is generated by Ofqual using a national statistical model. The final grades are calculated using whichever is higher. Heads of Centre (in effect, the Head of Academy) were required by Ofqual to ensure that “students are awarded a grade which fairly reflects the work that they have put in”, and to “ensure that the distribution of grades follows a similar pattern to that in other years”.   The academy set up a robust process of moderation, gathering evidence from teachers and leaders to justify predicted grades. These grades were then moderated by subject leaders and senior leaders based on the advice provided.   The Department for Education confirmed that the 2020 results will not be used for any accountability measures and should not be used to judge the performance of academies
