GCSE Performance 2017

During the last two years the school has achieved its two best ever sets of results.

We are particularly proud of the class of 2017 who faced the tough challenge of harder 9 – 1 examinations in English and Maths.

80% passed English at a standard pass (Grade 4) and 69% at a good pass (grade 5)

76% passed Maths at a standard pass (Grade 4) and 56% at a good pass (grade 5)

The students also achieved a record number of A/ A* grades – with over 1 in 5 of all grades being A/A*.

The EBAC measure (Students achieving a good pass in English, Maths, Double Science, A foreign language, History or Geography and three other subjects) was the school’s best ever at 31% ( 5th best in West Sussex)

Attainment 8 (the measure of achievement across 8 specified subjects) was the schools best ever with an average grade of B- and a score of 47.66.

The following subjects were all significantly above national average – Maths, English, Science. History, French, Spanish, Business, IT, Textiles, Art, Photography, Psychology, RE

Progress 8 remains around the same as the improved score last year. We are on -0.07 (Broadly average) – The first part of our journey as an Academy has been to improve achievement and the next part is to improve progress. The students have the potential to do even better over the coming years.
