Overall 66% of pupils at the academy achieved at least the expected standard in all three subjects, above this year’s interim national average.

In reading, 81% of pupils achieved at least the expected standard, 81% did so in writing and 78% in maths. Those results are six, three, two percentage points respectively higher than the interim national average for the individual subjects.

In reading there was particularly strong improvement, with 81% of students achieving the expected standard - a 23 percentage point increase on last year’s result.

The percentage of pupils attaining the standard of ‘greater depth’ was also strong, with 24% achieving the higher level in reading, 22% in writing and 14% in maths.

These strong results are reflective of the academy’s rapid journey of improvement since joining the Trust in 2016.
