2019 Examination Results

For a summary our examination results over the last few years please see the downloads at the bottom of the page.

The Performance of Disadvantaged Pupils


Whilst we still have more work to do in closing the gap for our boys from more disadvantaged backgrounds, many of our students from less affluent backgrounds make strong progress and attain at the same level or higher, on average, as other pupils nationally.

A Level:

Whilst the progress of disadvantaged students remains a focus in the Sixth Form, in both 2018 and 2019 the average Value Added for disadvantaged students was +0.3. This indicates that on average they made more progress than their peers. No national progress data will be published for 2020 or 2021.

Performance Tables

The 2020 and 2021 examination results will not be published in DfE Performance Tables due to the Covid-19 Pandemic. Our A Level results from all previous years and GCSE results from 2016 and 2019 can be viewed in the Performance Tables. However, please note our GCSE examination results from 2017 and 2018 are not reflected in the Performance Tables. The reason for this is that IGCSE English results ceased being included in Performance Tables from 2017. For more information please click on the link below.
