‘Our pupils have done well this year. We’ve seen an improvement in our results in several key areas and we’ve maintained a lot of the good results that we got last year. So, overall, it’s a pleasing picture for us as a school.’

We’re particularly pleased that the number of pupils achieving the government measure of a ‘strong pass’ (at grade 5 and above) has once again improved from last year in the vast majority of key performance indicators.

Our pupil premium pupils have continued to improve in their results too:

English

  • 60% of all pupils achieved a grade 5+ (strong pass) in English – a slight increase from last year.
  • 81% achieved a grade 4+ (standard pass) - an increase of 9% from last year.

Maths

  • 45% of all pupils achieved a grade 5+ (strong pass) in Maths – an increase of 4% from last year.
  • 65% achieved a grade 4+ (standard pass) - an increase of 8% from last year.

English and Maths

  • 41% of all pupils achieved a grade 5+ (strong pass) in English and Maths – an increase of 3% from last year.
  • 63% achieved a grade 4+ (standard pass) - an increase of 8% from last year.

  • In English Language, 14 pupils gained one of the top 3 grades as did 18 pupils in English Literature.
  • 7, 8 and 9 grades were also achieved in several other subjects, most notably Art, Biology, Chemistry, Physics, French, History, Technology and Combined Science, each with 3 or more pupils achieving these grades.
  • Some subjects achieved over a 90% grade 4+ pass rate including Chemistry, Physics and Technology, whilst pupils achieved a 100% grade 4+ pass rate in Biology and a 100% grade 5+ pass rate in Art.
  • Grade 4+ pass rates were also good in Computer Science 63%, PE 86% and Food Preparation 67%.
  • In other subjects where A*-C grades still apply, results continued to be excellent. With pupils achieving a 100% A*-C pass rate in Child Care, Greek, Gujarati Portuguese and Urdu.
  • 100% of pupils achieved either a pass, merit, distinction or distinction star in BTEC Drama, BTEC Sport and Music Performance.

We offer our best wishes and thanks to all our pupils who now move on from Priory, secure in the knowledge that they continued to build on the successes of previous years by producing not only some great examination results, but perhaps more importantly, some notable individual accomplishments over their time with us.
