Despite the slight reduction in overall attainment, this year group have shown incredible determination and hard work and on average look to have made progress above expectations; we could not be prouder of their achievements.”

The proportion of students achieving both English and Mathematics at Grade 4 or above was 70 percent (compared to 82 percent in 2019 and 62 percent in 2018).

The proportion of students achieving both English and Mathematics at Grade 5 or above was 46 percent (compared to 56 percent in 2019 and 43 percent in 2018).
