Charters School is pleased to report some outstanding achievements by its students in their Key Stage 5 qualifications this summer.

A Level Headline Figures:












Number of A Level students: 181

 This year, following the cancellation of exams, grades were awarded through a process of teacher assessed grades, against a national standard and approved and awarded by the exam boards. The government is not publishing performance data for any schools or colleges this year due to the varying impact of the pandemic.

Congratulations to all the students who gained the grades they need to progress onto the next stage of their education. 40 students gained straight A*/A grades across all the subjects they took with no student achieving anything less than an E grade across the whole cohort.

Students who studied BTEC qualifications also did very well with a significant number of Distinction and Distinction* outcomes. These outcomes alongside their A level outcomes have enabled them to progress to a range of universities.

Mr Richard Pilgrim, Former Headteacher, said, "Despite the huge challenges that have been faced in recent months, we must remember that today’s results are the culmination of seven years’ work and there have been many outstanding successes of which our students should be very proud. I hope that all our Year 13 students are now able to make plans for their futures. Whilst there has been no examination endorsement of grades, the work ethic and character development that has gone alongside academic study has prepared students well for the next step in their lives and they should feel confident and optimistic.”
