The most improved school in Worcestershire
With the new school performance tables being released on Thursday 12th October, we're delighted that the excellent GCSE results achieved in the summer have put us in the top 10 secondary schools in Worcestershire, based on the Progress 8 measure.
Additionally, the significant improvement in results between 2016 and 2017 means that we are the most improved of all secondary schools in the county, and are likely to be one of the most improved schools in the country.
Mark Pollard, Headteacher, said, "Our Progress 8 score of +0.1 shows that our students performed above the national average across all of their subjects. There were large increases in English and maths pass rates and more than a quarter of all grades were A/A* or 7, or better, which is testament to the hard work our team puts in to ensuring our students reach their full potential.
"It also underlines our belief that the result of an Ofsted inspection earlier in the year was very much based on the past. Over the last three years we've made extensive changes to enhance learning. The improvement in outcomes that we always knew was coming wasn't recognised during the inspection, however the improvement can clearly be seen in the 2017 exam results."
The publishing of the school performance tables comes just ahead of the secondary school application deadline. Mr Pollard added, "It's an important time for parents and guardians of Year 6 children. Although the application deadline is approaching, it's not too late to arrange a visit us to ensure the right choice is made."
Parents who were unable to attend our recent open evening can arrange a private tour with Mark Pollard by contacting the school direct.
