Sustaining and improving our GCSE and A-Level outcomes

As some of our parents will no doubt be aware the key Stage 4 results have recently been published by the Department for Education. We would like to reiterate how very proud we are of all our students and staff last year in sustaining and improving our GCSE and A-level outcomes.

As expected, at GCSE level, the published results highlighted the sustained achievement in the number of 4-9 grades in English and Maths as well as an increase in the 5-9 grades in these two core subjects and the overall Attainment 8 measure. We also saw improved achievement and progress in the Ebacc subjects (Humanities and Languages) which remain in line with national averages.

At A Level, we continue to see improvement in the average points achieved by students and that our students continue to achieve at least in line with their peers nationally after their 5 years with us. Our aspiration is to ensure that all of our students achieve above the national average and we know that our staff and students are working incredibly hard, remaining up for the challenge! 

Whilst we still have work to do to ensure every student leaves Stratton with the best possible outcomes, we continue to make progress and remain confident our current and future students and their families will work with us to secure the best possible futures for the young people of Biggleswade.

As well as all of the great things going on in the classroom, we have enjoyed a very busy half-term with some fabulous STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths) activities, careers events and sports successes this half term. We look forward to more of the same in the coming weeks after the break, especially the eagerly anticipated production of ‘Sister Act’ for which tickets can be purchased through Ticket Source : http://www.ticketsource.co.uk/strattonupperschool

We wish everyone an enjoyable and relaxing half term break.

 

Thanks
