Exam results - The Headlines  2019

We are delighted with our GCSE results for year 11. In particular our boys who did amazingly well and bucked the national trend.

Students and staff have worked hard this year to improve our performance in every area. In particular, Jamie Partridge, who has achieved the best set of results the school has ever had with six grade 9’s, two grade 8’s a 7 and two grade 6’s. 

We are so proud of our year 11 students. In a small year group every child has their own individual story. Some of our student’s stories are incredible. Everyone has pulled together as a team and achieved their very best.

 

Key results

Commentary

The Key stage 4 results would place us in the average schools category. Our early years and key stage 1 results were good and around national standards. This year, our key stage 2 results were below national standards and require improvement.

 

We are far from an average school. GCSE headlines are only a tiny part of the picture and I urge you to visit our school, feel the fantastic atmosphere and experience the unique student centred education that we offer. Behaviour, safety and attitude to learning has now been consistently good in 2 Ofsted inspections and we are working to achieve outstanding at our next inspection. Our students are independent learners and we constantly involve students in discussions about school improvement and their own learning. My staff go above and beyond to help students achieve the very best that they can in academic achievement and in developing the strengths and social skills needed to thrive in the world today. Education at St Martins School is so much more than the grades they achieve on their GCSE certificate.

 

The results for 2019 were an improvement in almost every area from the results in 2018.
