225383282 4349870868393150 3346600672760561363 nWhile assessment was different this year, the JCQ guidance and our Centre Policy was rigorously applied to ensure that students were neither unfairly advantaged or disadvantaged compared to previous or subsequent year groups.

While their qualifications are very impressive, they cannot capture their character and qualities. They are a remarkable group of young people, and we wish them the best of luck as they embark on the next stage of their education.

*Estimated Progress 8 scores based on comparison with 2019 national data

In 2020 and 2021 students nationally did not sit external exams due to the coronavirus pandemic and grades were decided by Teacher Assessment in line with OFQUAL guidance.

In the national performance tables, 2019 data will be used until the next set of external exams.

In 2019 we were proud to have the highest Progress 8 score of all secondary schools in Broxtowe.
