KS4 Exam Results
Stanborough celebrated another successful year of GCSE results in 2017.
Our provisional results put us above national average with 66% of students achieving a 4 or above in both English and Mathematics. Students made excellent progress across all subjects achieving, on average, 10 qualifications each. We were also particularly pleased with the 84% of students achieving the new grade 4 or above in either English Language or Literature and 69% of students achieving this in Mathematics. 34% of students achieved a level 5 in both English and Mathematics. 32% of students were entered for the full English Baccalaureate and 19% passed. We were delighted that so many students achieved the new top grade – a ‘9’. 8 were achieved in Mathematics, 6 in English Language and 4 in English Literature. One student achieved a 9 in all three and also achieved an A* in all her other subjects. This is something that only a few students have achieved across the country
We do not yet know our Progress 8 score as this is dependent upon all other schools across the country but our Attainment 8 score is 45.9 using the new 2017 point scores. Our progress 8 score for 2016 was -0.11. All students continued onto Post 16 provision or employment.
We are proud of the achievements and progress of our students in another volatile year of exam results. In particular, our results in English, Mathematics and Science have seen improved outcomes over the past few years. This is down to the dedication of staff and students.

KS5 A-Level Exam Results
Stanborough was pleased with another set of impressive A-level results in 2017. The average point score for academic and A level qualifications was 31.1 (a grade C), and the pass rate was 98%. For applied general qualifications the average point score was 35.5 (a distinction). One student studied a Technical level qualification and achieved a Distinction*. 48% of grades achieved were A*-B and 10% of students gained at least two As and a B, enabling them to study at Russell Group universities. Two students were entered for GCSE maths and one achieved a grade 4 whilst one student was entered for GCSE English and achieved a Grade C.
Progress measures for 2017 are not yet available, but when compared against targets set against national data, students learning at Stanborough achieved 1/5 of a grade above target. 2016 added value scores were -0.12 for academic subjects, -0.13 for A levels and -0.09 for general vocational. These were marginally below national averages. We expect the 2017 results to be well above.
This is a fantastic achievement for our students and reflects the hard work and dedication put in by the students and staff. Year 13 Students were successful in their applications to university and further employment and training. We are very proud of all of our students and wish them all the best for the future.
