The GCSE Exam Results in the summer of 2023 were fantastic - huge congratulations to all the students.

Please see the link below to the subject analysis for GCSEs:

GCSE Results 2023

 

A Level Results 2023

The A Level results are to be celebrated with superb results achieved by the students.  These are all the more remarkable given that the DfE and Ofqual wanted a return to pre-pandemic grades meaning grades were expected to be lower than previous years and similar to grades in 2019.

The A Level headlines are:

  • 36% of all grades are A/A* - matching the record in 2019
  • 45 A*grades (10% of all entries) – beating the 26 A* grades in 2019
  • 70% of all grades achieved are at A*- B – matching the record in 2019
  • 88% of all grades achieved are at A*- C
  • 99.6% A - E
  • Overall average point score per entry is 39.9, equivalent to a Grade B

Rebecca Wiscombe, Head of Sixth Form said, “We are incredibly proud of our students, who have really impressed us with their work ethic in what has been a very challenging few years of their education.  Their hard work, resilience and positivity over the last two years has yielded an excellent set of A Level results that match the school’s record-breaking pre-Covid year of 2019”.

Hinchley Wood School wishes all the students success as they embark on their next journey, whether at University, College or entering the workplace.

2022 EXAM RESULTS

GCSE results 2022

Our Year 11 students performed exceptionally well, particularly given the disruption to their education over the past few years.

90% of students achieved 5 or more GCSEs at grade 4 or above, and 87% achieved this benchmark including GCSE English and Maths.

Both of these match the school’s results from when public exams were last sat in 2019.

Furthermore, the number of students achieving the highest grades was particularly impressive; 214 grade 9s were awarded (13% of all grades achieved) and 303 grade 8s (17% of all grades achieved).

This is a school examination record and, given the news about a decline in the top grades being achieved nationally, it demonstrates how our students have excelled.

49% of all GCSE grades achieved were grades 7 to 9 (vs 32.7% nationally)

Our published Progress 8 (P8) figure is +0.78. This measure is designed to show how much progress each student has made from Year 6 to Year 11. A score above +0.50 is defined as “well above average”.

Lucy Macdonald, Headteacher, added: “We are so pleased with the excellent GCSE grades that the students have achieved and they should feel rewarded for all their hard work. I would also like to acknowledge all the work that the staff here at HWS have done in supporting our Year 11 students. I very much hope the students will continue to be successful in their next steps and would like to pass on our congratulations to all the students”.

We were thrilled to see so many students enrolling at our Sixth Form, choosing a wide range of subjects that reflect the achievements across the curriculum. We cannot wait to see what they can achieve in the next phase of their education.
 

A Level results 2022

This year’s A Level results are exceptional and the students have been rewarded for all their hard work over the last two years.

48% of all grades achieved were A/A*, a school record, 76% of all grades achieved were A*-B and 88% of all grades achieved were A*-C.

Overall, an incredible 97 A* grades were achieved by this cohort, another school record. 

88 out of 146 students achieved 3 or more A*-B grades.

More than 88% of students achieved the grades needed to secure their chosen university.   The students were really excited about their next steps, whether this was starting an apprenticeship or employment, making plans for gap years or confirming arrangements for university.

Head of Year 13, Tea Gray, said “I am so proud of every single student and what they have achieved over the past two years given the challenging and changeable environment that they have had to face.  Their resilience and focus this year has been brilliant and they deserve every success today and in their future.”

Head of 6th Form, Rebecca Wiscombe said “I am so thrilled and delighted at these brilliant results for our students.  As a group, the students could not have worked harder and their results are very fitting reward for their dedication to their studies over the past two years. I would also like to thank all the staff who have helped our students achieve a fantastic set of results. Congratulations to all our students for their outstanding achievements this summer and we wish them well as they head off to the next stage of their education or their first steps into the wider world.”

Head of Geography, Tina Modi said “Huge congratulations to all our Geography students who worked extremely hard to achieve outstanding results this year. We are so pleased that 14 students achieved an A*, a record for our department, and 64% achieving an A* or A grade. The students were a delight to teach, and we have fond memories of the Slapton Fieldtrip! Their hard work has clearly paid off, and I want to wish them all great success in the future.”

As a Sixth Form, we have had so much to celebrate this year, and we could not be prouder of this amazing group of students.

2020 EXAM RESULTS

In the summer 2020 and great Covid related uncertainty, all the hard work of our students was rewarded with a superb set of Centre Assessed Grades. 

In terms of GCSE results, our students were able to celebrate many successes as a Year 11 cohort and as individuals.  The cohort achieved 92% five or more 4+ Grades including English & Maths with 96% of the cohort achieving five or more 4+ Grades.  93% of the cohort achieved a Grade 4 or above in both English and Maths with 83% achieving a Grade 5 or above in both English and Maths.  48% of all grades were achieved at 7+ and 27.7% at 8/9 – both new school attainment records.  Internal value added analysis for the cohort shows that we have added value for students of all abilities with an internal Progress 8 figure of +1.01 (meaning that, on average, our students achieved more than 10 grades better than their peers nationally across 10 GCSE grades).  Our analysis shows that value added outcomes for Pupil Premium and SEND students were also very positive – very much bucking the national and Surrey trend for such vulnerable learners. 

A Level results were also outstanding across the board with 43% of all grades achieved at A/A*, 77% A*-B and 96% A*-C (the third successive year of 90%+).   The average A Level points score of 43.05 was a new school record (with 40+ points equating to an average A Level grade of Grade B for the third year running).  We were delighted that more than 95% of students achieved the grades they needed to secure their chosen university.
