Exam Results and Ofsted Report

Weald School Examination Results - 2018

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 2018 we matched our previous best GCSE performance as a school with 76% of students achieving English and maths GCSEs at grade 4 or above. 82% of students achieved a grade 4 or above in English whilst 81% achieved a grade 4 or above in maths. These are significantly above West Sussex and national averages. We were particularly delighted at students’ performance on the Progress 8 scale which measures progress from KS2 to KS4. In 2017, the last year for which we have confirmed data, The Weald was the highest performing school in West Sussex with a Progress 8 score of +0.72 GCSE grades. In 2018 we expect progress in the best eight subjects including English and maths to be very positive again. These 2018 Progress 8 scores will not be released until mid-October. Our 2017 Progress 8 results show that students at The Weald make, on average, +0.72 of a grade more progress in each GCSE than students nationally. This Progress 8 score puts The Weald in the top 5% of schools in the country at GCSE. This was also the case in 2016.

In 2017 The Weald also achieved another excellent set of A Level results:  81% of grades were at A*-C and 55% were at A*-B. 11% of students achieved grades at A*, nearly twice the national average. Results across the ability range were again very good with our average grade per entry remaining high. All 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 Forms in West Sussex.
