Weald School Examination Results - 2017
The school has done well in recent years and has achieved record results. In our October 2013 Ofsted inspection, we were delighted that the school was judged to be “outstanding” in all categories.
In 2017 we exceeded our previous best GCSE performance as a school with 75% of students achieving 5 or more A*-C/4 grades or better including English and maths. 77% of students achieved both English and maths GCSEs at a 4 or above. We were particularly delighted at students’ performance on the new Progress 8 scale which measures progress from KS2 to KS4. We expect progress in the best eight subjects to be around +0.50. This means that students here at The Weald make on average +0.50 of a grade more progress in each GCSE than students in the rest of the UK”. In 2016 our Progress 8 score put us in the top 5% of schools in the country at GCSE.
In 2017 The Weald also achieved another excellent set of A Level results: 77% of grades at A*-C and 56% A*-B. 17% of students achieved grades at A* twice the national average. Results across the ability range were again very good with our average grade per entry remaining high. 100% of students who applied to University were accepted onto their choice of course. These results place The Weald as one of the highest performing non-selective Sixth Form in West Sussex.
