outstanding exam resuts

19 January 2017: Sexey’s School’s GCSE and A Level examination results have been confirmed county leaders by official performance tables for schools across England, published by the Department for Education (DfE) today.

At GCSE, Sexey’s has received the best results for a state school in the South West. Moreover, on a comparison of ‘similar’ schools (schools across England whose key stage 4 pupils had similar achievement at the end of key stage 2), Sexey’s is rated as second in the whole country (after Preston Muslim Girls High School in Lancashire).

Sexey’s Attainment 8 score for 2016 is 58.5 with a Progress 8* score of 0.60, described in the DfE charts as “well above national average”. The average points score at key stage 2 was 28.2.

At A Level, Sexey’s School’s A Level results are in the top 10 league in Somerset, and Sexey’s is the only state school to make that league.

The metrics are based upon the performance of A Level candidates in two measures:
- Average point score per academic entry: The total point score achieved by all pupils and divided those pupils’ total number of entries. For example, an A* is worth 60 and an E is worth 10.
- AAB with two facilitating subjects: The percentage of A Level pupils achieving 3 A Level grades at AAB or higher of which at least 2 are in ‘facilitating subjects’ (i.e. the academic subjects required for Russell Group entry).

Mr Irfan Latif, Head Master, said, “Our students’ continually improving grades – whether they are top mark achievers or demonstrating their potential by exceeding all expectations - are exceptionally impressive and I congratulate every one of them on their success. Sexey’s continues to maintain high academic expectations and standards, both in and out of the classroom, for all our students and we are all delighted with these outstanding results - a testament to all of the hard work and dedication involved in school, in the boarding houses, and at home.”

Commenting on the results, Mr Daniel Bull, Deputy Headteacher added, “These GCSE and A Level results are a fitting tribute to all of the hard work that students and colleagues put in to achieve them. I am particularly proud of those students who have worked so hard to meet, and frequently exceed, their targets. The year group was a delight to work with and the students in question are continuing to do very well.”

Sexey’s next Boarding Open Morning will be held on Saturday 13th May 2017 from 10am and we invite you to come and take a look with your child.

* Progress 8 is a new Government performance measure which compares the progress made by pupils from primary school to secondary school across eight key subjects in schools across the country. It has been introduced in order to ascertain whether schools are helping all pupils achieve a benchmark level of progress, instead of simply focusing on high flying pupils who would previously have helped their position in the league tables.
