Examination Results

Mrs Davies

It gives me great pleasure to report our KS4 and KS5 results below and show that the school is making excellent progress.  We are providing a value-added education for our students, regardless of starting points. The exam results since 2017 show that pupils are making progress greater than the national average. 2018 exam results continue to show this trend, with indications that the progress 8 score will continue to show pupils making progress above the national average. In line with government guidance, examination results for 2020 and 2021 have not been included in the table below. No performance tables measures have been generated as examinations were not completed, due to the pandemic.

The P8 figure is the average progress that all our students made in 8 subjects, compared with their entry scores in year 7. With the national average progress 8 score being 0, with figures of +0.19, +0.17, +0.03 students at Wrenn School make greater than national average progress.

Our Year 13 students achieved some amazing results this year with 87% of students gained at least one A*-B grade, with over three quarters of students gaining at least one A*-A grade. The number of A*-B grades achieved increase by 16%. Progress from GCSE in 2018 is the highest in the town, especially in Vocational subjects and Academic subject areas.

* 2018 results placed Wrenn as the top sixth form in the town for progress at A-level, Academic and Applied general.
SUPP: Suppressed: in certain circumstances the DfE will suppress an establishment’s data. This is usually when there are 5 or fewer pupils or students covered by the measure.

Our results show that Wrenn students are making progress, which is testimony to our hard-working staff and work ethos of our young people.
