Examinations, Timetables & Results

Congratulations to Year 11 Pupils who achieved some superb results that reflect the tremendous hard work of staff and pupils.

Pupils have done themselves proud in GCSE exams and 100% have secured the places they wanted on further education or apprenticeship courses.  

St. Wilfrid’s Academy results compare favourably with National Alternative Providers, with 66% of all pupils achieving 5 A* to G grades across all three core subjects of English, maths and sciences (National AP 2015: 10.5%). 100% of pupils gained at least 1 GCSE or equivalent at grade A* to G (National AP 2015: 57.8%).  

The small year 11 cohort of 9 pupils achieved some fantastic individual results which is particularly impressive as they completed the rigorous GCSE courses in less than a year.

We are celebrating some excellent individual performances that include:

  • One pupil who achieved two grade A passes and 4 other GCSE equivalent qualifications;
  • Six pupils that achieved 5 or more GCSE or equivalent outcomes;
  • Two pupils completed an industry-recognised Level 2 Motor Vehicle Education qualification and one will now go onto an apprenticeship.

We wish all of our Year 11 Leavers every success in the future.

Pupil progress, September 2015 – July 2016

At St. Wilfrids, Targets are set for Maths, English and Science for a full academic year based on historic end of KS2 levels. Expected progress is 2 levels of progress per key stage. i.e 2 sub levels per year in 7/9 and 1 GCSE grade per year at 10/11.

Targets have also been set against baselines taken in September 2015 (or at the point of arrival). These are 3 sub levels of progress in 7/9 with the aim of ‘narrowing the gap’. The 1 full GCSE grade per year has been used for KS4.

Students are assessed 6 times per year against their targets and their progress against closing the gap will be tracked.

At KS4, GCSE grades have been subleveled. i.e. C1 = secure grade C and grade B possible with intervention. C2 = grade secure C with intervention. C3 = intervention required in order to gain a grade C.

At the end of the Summer term 2015, SWA had 50 Full Time In reach KS3/4 students and 7 KS4 Students accessing Vocational Placements only. The following analysis is based on the cohort of 57 Students.

How do we compare?

The average GCSE point score across is significantly greater than both the 2014/15 national average (51.2) for AP/PRU and the immediate geographic area.  This is due to high expectations and students being entered and passing a high number of quality qualifications.

St. Wilfrid’s Academy is committed to developing a strong Vocational offering through Quality Partnerships with local providers and this has resulted in 100% of our year 11 leavers gaining a qualification.

Literacy and Numeracy pass rates are also high with 66% of learners gaining at least a level 1 pass in Maths and English.
