Best entry data
Last year we once again offered youngsters the choice of sitting examinations in several subjects(including English, Maths and Science) early. We also allowed learners to set personal goals and if these were achieved in early entry exams, cease studying those subjects. As a result 153 learners did not achieve the highest grade of which they were capable in these exams, as a direct result of being allowed to set their own goals.
Of course, this means that information published in official performance tables is inaccurate. Performance tables only consider a learner’s first exam entry, not the final grade they secured. Our BEST ENTRY data highlights the actual outcomes for our youngsters of whom we are very proud, as they achieved the best GCSE outcomes ever secured by learners attending the school, demonstrating the powerful motivator being given real choices can bring to learning and learning outcomes.
|Class of 2016||Honywood First Entry||Honywood Best Entry|
|Percentage of Learners achieving 5 A* to C with English and Maths||41%||70%|
|Percentage of Learners achieving 5 A* to C||67%||73%|
|Attainment 8 Score||48.73||51.13|
|Progress 8 Score||-0.41||-0.16|
|Percentage of Disadvantaged Learners achieving 5 A* to C with English and Maths||32%||60%|

Qualifications open doors and every school must do all it can to help its youngsters to open doors to the future. However, when the door opens if you have no attributes, no character, no personality, are you likely to secure the opportunity in front of you? We know that the young people who leave us are not only qualified to do so, but are also able to take the opportunities their qualifications will produce.
