GCSE Results 2021
Huge congratulations to all our students for such great GCSE results after such an extremely difficult year.
We are proud of them all. Many have done outstandingly well.
Record numbers of our students have got results good enough to get them into top 6th form colleges such as the London Academy of Excellence, rated by the Sunday Times as the top 6th Form college of the year, and Woodhouse, the very popular and oversubscribed college.
Headteacher, Arthur Bazey, said: "In the most difficult of circumstances our young people have worked tremendously hard to get the grades they need. Our GCSE results are excellent again this year. We wish all our Year 11s the very best for the future."
The school continues to deliver great results, making year on year progress in key subjects like English, Maths and the Sciences.
Our great results in detail
Heron Hall celebrated its fourth set of successful GCSE results this summer. Year on year improvement has remained very good with our students achieving an overall progress 8 score of +1.3 (for 2021).
The Progress 8 benchmark is an accountability measure introduced in 2016 and used by the government to measure the effectiveness of secondary schools in England.
It bands students into groups based on their scores in English and Mathematics during the Key Stage 2 SATs. In GCSE results, six EBacc subjects are chosen and each grade is converted to points on a scale published by the government for that cohort. English and Mathematics are worth double points and all points are added together. This is the Attainment 8 score.
Students in Maths and English made outstanding progress with +1.3 progress in Maths and +1.1 progress in English.
Students also made above expected progress in subjects including Biology, Chemistry, Physics, Combined Science, History, Geography, Art, Drama and several other subjects.
53% of students achieved a grade 5+ in Maths and English and 70% of students achieved a good pass in both English and Maths.
• Attainment 8 = 5.3
• English Grade 5+ = 66%
• Maths at Grade 5+ = 62%
• Two Sciences at Grade 5+ = 70%
• 5+ GCSE’s at Grade 5+ including English and Maths = 53%
