In 2018, Alderman White School Year 11 results remain hugely impressive and are amongst our best ever.

·      In English, 80% of students achieved a Grade 4+ (previously C+) and 25% achieved a Grade 7, 8 or 9 (previously A - A*), exceeding national attainment

·      In Maths, 75% of students achieved a Grade 4+ and 23% achieved a Grade 7, 8 or 9, also exceeding national attainment

·      19% of our students achieved 5 or more Grade 7-9s, including one student who was one of only 730 in the country to achieve Grade 9 in every subject and 2 others who achieved Grade 9 in all but 1 subject

·      In total, we had 56 new Grade 9s (A*+): 10 in Maths, 9 in Physics, 8 in Biology, 6 in Chemistry, 5 in English, 4 in History, 3 in both French and Geography, 2 in both German and Music, and 1 in RE, Art, Computing and Food.

The provisional results that are published in October do not include a full set of data, since they do not include a number of successful re-marks, music exams and a course where results were delayed by the exam board. Our Attainment and Progress 8 scores will increase when the final data is published in January.

The curriculum that we offer our students is based on meeting their needs and interests, and preparing them for aspirational courses and careers in the future, rather than maximising the school’s Progress 8 measure. As a result, our progress measure is well above average in Maths and in line with national levels in English and academic “Ebacc” subjects. Our overall Progress 8 measure compared to schools nationally has been reduced by the broad range of more academic subjects that we offer to most of our students and the decision not to enter students for more subjects than they require, which would have benefitted the school’s Progress 8 score, but would have been of little benefit to students. When these factors are taken into account, our progress scores are extremely pleasing.
