Students' achievements were so strong in 2014 that it resulted in a national award for progress in GCSE examinations.
The Department for Education’s (DfE) analyses of students’ achievements in examination results this summer (RAISE online) have just been released (5/12/14)

How well students achieve at a particular school is compared to a national average. Below is a table that shows how well students at Branston achieved in academic courses (as defined by the DfE) in 2014:

va_gcse_ebacc
It is unusual for all courses at a school to be above the national average of 1000, it is very unusual for students’ achievements to be so strong that all the courses are above 1001. This is progress well beyond (significantly beyond) expectations.

Disadvantaged students
The table below shows how well our ‘disadvantaged’ students (who have access to ‘pupil premium’ funding from the government) achieved in external examinations in 2014.

va_gcse_ebaccdisad
In four of the five courses there was no gap in achievement. Branston’s ‘disadvantaged’ students made better progress than the national average progress of ALL students.

In all five courses Branston’s ‘disadvantaged’ students made more, and usually much more, progress than ‘disadvantaged’ students nationally.

Other important achievement indicators

  • 59% of students achieved at least 5 high grade GCSE passes including English and Maths (national average = 55%)
  • 32% of students gained the English Baccalaureate - high grade passes in each of English, Maths, Science, a Language, History or Geography (national average = 24%)
  • 77% of students made at least expected progress in English (national average = 70%)
  • 72% of students made at least expected progress in Maths (national average = 65%)

Other GCSE courses
We are really proud that our students achieve so well across the whole curriculum. In 2014 our students performed beyond or usually well beyond expectations (achievement was significantly positive) in ALL of these courses:
Art
Business Studies
DT
Food
Music
PE
Performing Arts
RE

6th form
Once again (fifth year in succession) our Y13 students’ examination results showed that they made more progress than expected – value added is ‘positive’. These are first class achievements by our 6th form students because the targets set for them are extremely challenging due to their excellent performance in GCSE courses.
