In summer 2023 we received our first set of GCSE results and we were delighted with what our pupils achieved.
In our first GCSE results in 2023 76.7% of pupils achieved a grade 4 or above in English and Maths, and 62.3% at the 5+ measure; both percentages are significantly above the national average.
The proportion of pupils achieving the top grades was exceptionally high, with around 1/5 of pupils (19.2%) awarded a grade 7 or above in both English and maths.
Across the year group, this meant there were some particularly impressive individual performances, including:
- Zulekha, who each achieved nine grade 9s and one grade 8
- Farhiya, who each achieved eight grade 9s and two grade 8s
- Eddie, who achieved 5 grade 9s
Our Year 11 pupils have worked incredibly hard throughout their last five years at Saracens High School. We are thrilled with the progress pupils have made from their respective starting points across the whole cohort. Inclusive of our Year 10 language exams, our overall Progress 8 Score of +0.46 demonstrates that pupils at Saracens High School achieved, on average, half a grade higher in each of their subjects compared to national outcomes. Some of the most impressive progress scores saw pupils achieving, on average, over two grades higher in each of their subjects compared to national outcomes.
We are particularly proud that all demographic groups achieved overall Progress 8 scores far exceeding the national average.
- We have no gender gap with boys exceeding the national boys Progress 8 score by nearly ½ grade in all subjects.
- We have no gap in performance for our Pupil Premium children, with an average Progress 8 score of 0.46 compared to the national average of -0.57, which means that our Pupil Premium cohort (which is 60% of our pupils) achieved on average more than one full grade better than the national average.
- When compared to the most similar 50 schools, of the same size and with a similar percentage of Pupil Premium children, the performance of our Pupil Premium children ranks Saracens High School first.
