School Exam and Assessment Results

Throughout out school, our children benefit from top quality teaching and this is evidenced by comparison with national figures in the areas where we are required by the Department for Education (DfE) to formally test our children.

Please note that due to the Coronavirus pandemic, these performance measures are not current but the tables below highlight our school results for the last verified school year (2019) against national data;

The government will not publish KS2 school level data for our last 2021 to 2022 academic year. They have archived data from the 2018 to 2019 academic year but they recognise that the data from that year may no longer reflect current performance. These are our results from 2018-19 which are the current results we must publish;
