Students have been celebrating the first set of results as All Saints Catholic College and the best the school has seen on its history. Our Progress 8 score is forecast to be 0.33 and for students who actually sat exams, 0.4. 73% of students achieved a pass in both English and Mathematics. Remarkably, 94% of students achieved a good pass English.
Headteacher, Andrew O’Neill said: “I am delighted with the GCSE results. Our RE department, who teach the whole cohort, secured 94% grade 4 or higher and 60% grade 7 or higher - these are exceptional results. I would like to congratulate all of our students who adapted well to the new exams system. We are expecting our Progress 8 score to be positive once again this year and even better then last year."
“The change to becoming All Saints has been really successful. When we decided to make this change we didn’t realise just how popular we would be and how much demand there would be for a new mixed school in this area. Due to this demand we have had to take in an extra form class in Year 7. In our first year as All Saints Catholic College we are heavily oversubscribed. ”
As we are a new secondary school, All Saints Catholic College has not had an OFSTED report as of yet.
Here is the most recent report and letter from Sion-Manning Catholic Girls' School:
“The leadership team has maintained the good quality of education in the school”
“In 2016, almost two thirds of pupils in Year 11 achieved five or more GCSE passes at grades A* to C, including English and mathematics. This success represented an increase on the 2015 examination results of 13 percentage points.”
“Staff at all levels place a strong emphasis on keeping pupils safe”
“Parents too are very positive about the improvement."
