Examination Results 2019

KS4 Results

Year 11 students at The Priory School celebrated very good GCSE results in 2019.  Of the new grades, the grade 9 was created to be awarded only to ‘exceptional performers’, so we are delighted that there were 72 Grade 9s (49 in 2018) across the school and a total of 116 Grade 8s (102 in 2018).

English results were again very good. 57% of our students attained grades 9-5 (a good pass) and 79% achieved grades 9-4 (a standard pass, which is equivalent to the previous Grade C  at GCSE). Many maths students achieved their target grades in maths, with 47% of students achieving grades 9-5 (a good pass) and 71% achieving grades 9-4 (a standard pass).

The Attainment 8 score is 48.3, which is equivalent to a high grade C across the school. The Progress 8 figure has not been published yet, but we are anticipating a positive outcome, which reflects the progress students make from their starting points.
