We’re celebrating our Academies and their 2021/22 GCSE performance results

On 20 October 2022, The Department for Education (DfE) released performance results for the 2021/2022 academic year on the achievements of young people in England at the end of key stage 4.

The information covers GCSE results and other qualifications that young people achieved during this time and reflects the change in the way GCSE results were awarded during the pandemic, as well as the changes to grade boundaries and methods of assessment.

The Trust is proud to share that the majority of our Academies achieved on or above the national average for Progress 8 scores within the performance tables.

The Progress 8 scores show how much progress students have made across eight qualifications between the end of key stage 2 and key stage 4, compared to similar students nationally.

Andy Goulty, Chief Executive Officer at the Trust, said: “We’re so proud of our 2021/2022 year 11 students and the resilience they showed throughout the pandemic, which was a challenging and unprecedented time for all.

“This year’s national performance data must however be considered with a level of caution, as it does not capture results from early GCSE entries for 2020 and 2021. This has therefore led to lower scores being published nationally for some schools and Academies across the country, including within our Trust, as our Academies support early entry GCSEs for our year 10 students.

“We’ve published our local performance results which incorporate our early entry GCSE results too. Against the national average, which is -0.03, our Academies achieved:

  • BBG Academy: 0.45
  • Brayton Academy: 0.77
  • Rodillian Academy: 0.12
  • The Featherstone Academy: -0.43

“We are very proud of these results and the dedication and hard work shown by students and staff alike and would like to say a big congratulations to all.

“As always, we will investigate areas where we can improve and our focus is to continue to grow and support students and staff to return to normal ways of working, following the challenges of the pandemic.”
