GCSE Results 2020

Students made exceptional progress from their starting points

2020 was a challenging year for 16 year olds at Walthamstow Academy who had been working towards their GCSEs for the previous 5 years. Our teachers undertook a rigorous process to produce Centre Assessed Grades (CAGs) for every student. Our systems and staff training were used as a model of best practice by other schools.

 Students achieved very well across the range of academic and vocational qualifications, and this is as we would have expected given their excellent performance in mock exams up to the point of school closure in March 2020.

  • All ability ranges progress well at the Academy
  • 84% of students achieved pass grades (4+) in both English and mathematics
  • 25% of all exams were awarded 7/8/9 (equivalent to As and A*s in old GCSE grades)
  • 15% of entries were grade 8 or 9 – the national average in 2019 was 4%
  • The percentage of pupils entering for the English Baccalaureate was 56%, well over twice the national average.
  • The 2019 percentage of students staying in education or employment after key stage 4 (destinations) was 98% and we expect the 2020 figure to be just as impressive when it is calculated in November. This is well above the national and local average.
