GCSE results 2016
On behalf of governors and staff I would like to congratulate our Year 11 students on their exam results. Each and every one of them has had a challenging few years. Those that came up from our Primary school have shown great loyalty and perseverance, sticking with the school even when its future looked uncertain and I thank them all for their faith in us. Their GCSE results are outstanding and very well-deserved. In this group, 94% got at least a C grade in English and 69% at least a C in Maths.
Over half of this year group though came to us in Year 10, just twenty months before their GCSEs, again showing great courage and faith in this school. The fact that they changed schools at such a crucial time and have come away with good results is a testament both to them, to their families and to their hardworking teachers. Well done everyone.
Progress 8 measures the progress made by pupils between taking their SATS in year 6 and receiving their GCSE grades in year 11. Each child’s performance is given a figure based on whether they made/ did not make/ exceeded the expected progress and these figures are then divided by the cohort to give the average which is the school figure. Any negative number therefore is a cause for concern.
Chetwynde’s position is complicated because;
- Nine of the children in this cohort of 42 did not take SATS because they were in Chetwynde Independent School in Year 6 and did not take them. They therefore DO NOT COUNT at all in our Progress 8 score which is obviously a great shame and disadvantage. Our score does NOT therefore reflect the progress made by the whole cohort.
- 29 of the children in this cohort of 42 joined us in Year 10 or part-way through Year 10. One was educated off-site and did not take any GCSEs at all. This was also not to our advantage and has clearly impacted upon our score.
