Notes: National Averages are shown in red in brackets for state funded schools from the DfE national dataset. 

* On 18th March 2020, the Government announced the cancellation of all GCSE, A Level and other examinations for 19/20 academic year and used a teacher assessed approach – Centre Assessed Grades (CAGs).  The school was in a strong position to support teachers across all subjects and was able to present staff with a rigorous and robust process to making their teacher assessments in a manner that reflected the efforts of our students.  The 2020 Exam Grades are the higher of the Centre Assessed Grades (CAGs) submitted by Hele’s School and a calculated exam board grade.   2020 Exam Grades are not directly comparable with previous years.

Further information on what this means for the way school and college accountability will operate for 2019/20 and for 2020/21 can be found here.
