As no exams took place this year, schools awarded Centre Assessed Grades to students. Following a rigorous internal process to award these grades we were pleased with the students' results which are a true reflection of their hard work throughout their courses. Our key performance indicators can be seen below.
Attainment 8 49.99
Percentage of pupils who achieved a strong pass (grade 5 or above) in English and Maths 40.5%
Ebacc Average Point Score 4.36
Please note no Progress 8 score is shown above as no P8 score or league tables will operate this year.
Exam Series November 2020
Unfortunately, exam boards will not be able to accept lost teaching time because of the coronavirus as grounds for special consideration.
This autumn series is not a typical re-sit series, since students in the summer did not take any exams. We don’t know, therefore, what proportion of students will improve on their summer 2020 grade, but we should not assume that every student will improve their grade. If they don’t, it’s important to remember that their grades from the summer will still stand. And if they do improve their grade, they will be able to request a new certificate which shows only their best result(s).
Looking further ahead, we know that schools, colleges and students want to know more about the approach that we will take to setting standards in summer 2021. Before we take a decision on that, we will be talking to exam boards, government, school and college leaders, parents and students, and we will say more on this before the end of the year.
Students and staff at Virgo Fidelis are celebrating some excellent GCSE results at a time when the introduction of tougher examination standards across the suite of subjects proves challenging for many students.
We are delighted with the individual performance of many of our students. It is fantastic to see all the hard work, dedication and effort that pupils and staff put in day after day at Virgo Fidelis reap such positive outcomes.
