Examination Results 2018
Year 11 students at The Priory School celebrated very good GCSE results in 2018. This, in a year where most of the GCSEs have been reformed to the new 9-1 grades, is outstanding. Of the new grades, the grade 9 was created to be awarded only to ‘exceptional performers’, so we are delighted that there were 49 Grade 9s across the school and a total of 102 Grade 8s.
English results were again excellent. 66% of our students attained grades 9-5 (a good pass) and 81% achieved grades 9-4 (a standard pass). Many Maths students met their target. 44% attained grades 9-5 (a good pass) and 68% achieved grades 9-4 (a standard pass).
The current Attainment 8 score is 49, which is equivalent to a high grade C across the school. The progress 8 figure has not been published yet, but we are anticipating an even more positive outcome than last year, as our students have made very good progress from their starting points.
30.5% of all students in Year 11 in 2018 were entered for the English Baccalaureate.
27% achieved the English Baccalaureate (9-4). This is higher than 2017 and higher than the national 21.1%.
