2021 Examinations & Assessments
With examinations cancelled for summer 2021 Teacher Assessed Grades, based on evidence gathered on students’ performance and competence, will be provided to exam boards instead.
Examinations are an integral part of student learning at the College. Students are supported and prepared for all examinations appropriately. Our excellent reputation with the Awarding Bodies is maintained by our strict adherence to assessment processes and procedures.
Specific arrangements for students with individual needs can be put in place to ensure they can access an assessment. This will give them a level playing field in which to demonstrate their skills, knowledge and understanding.
The College has established a strong reputation for the consistently high level examination achievements of its students. We are fully committed to the principle of continuous improvement and are constantly striving to further improve our performance ensuring that we maintain our distinctive culture and ethos and our strong partnerships with the world of business and industry.

Progress 8 calculates how much progress students make between their results in Year 6 and their results in Year 11. It is a ‘value-added’ measure, meaning students’ results are compared to the achievements of other students with similar Year 6 results. It is called Progress 8 as it is based on the results of 8 subjects.
Attainment 8 is a way of measuring how well students do in Key Stage 4. A student’s Attainment 8 score is calculated by adding up the points for their 8 subjects, with English and maths counted twice. The College’s Attainment 8 score is the average of all of its eligible students’ scores.
This is the percentage of students who took qualifications in English, Maths, (at least) two Sciences, a Modern Foreign Language and History or Geography.
More information for parents regarding performance measures can be found on the GOV.UK website.
