Examination Results

Mrs Parker
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 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 table measures have been generated
for these years as examinations were not completed, due to the pandemic.

2023 results

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 +0.17, +0.04, +0.09 and a provisional score of +0.06
for 2023, students at Wrenn School make greater than national average progress.

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.
