TAG Process

Teacher Assessed Grades were generated using a range of evidence including classwork, trial examinations, NEA and final evidence appraisal assessments. In any case where a student was absent at a time a piece of evidence was being collected either a suitable piece of evidence was substituted or a heavier weighting on the other evidence was given, so no student was disadvantaged for a missing piece of evidence. Special considerations can only be applied in extreme circumstances and where these were applicable they were taken into account when generating the final grade. Please find below the Subject Assessment Maps for each subject which detail the evidence used to support the TAG awarded.

Student Outcomes 2020

The past five years have seen the GCSE and A Level results improve year on year, and although 2020 results have been calculated in a different way and cannot be published, we know our students have worked extremely hard and would have shown us they could have continued that upward trajectory. The results every year reflect a huge amount of hard work and effort on behalf of our staff, students and their families and 2020 is no exception. Below is a summary of historical results showing the upward trajectory over the recent years (please note we cannot publish 2020 results).

A Level Exam Results 2019

The percentage of A*/A grades increased to 29% with 80% of all grades achieving A* - C. 13 students achieved at least 3 top grades, as well as the school having the highest completion rate in the South East for the Duke of Edinburgh Gold Award, that students take alongside their studies.
