EXAM RESULTS

GCSE

In 2022, we had another successful year. We received the best English results that the school has ever achieved at Grade 4+ (87%) and Grade 5+ (71%).

We also gained the best Maths results that school has ever achieved at Grade 5+ (52%).

16 out of 24 subjects showed improvement in the percentage of students gaining a Grade 5 or better compared with 2019 (last set of exams).

Progress 8 Score  -0.31*
% Achieving 5+ in English & Maths 48.4%
% Achieving 4+ in English & Maths 67.3%
Attainment 8 Score 46.76*
EBACC Average Point Score 3.96*

*The published data for Alec Hunter did not include results from 2 subjects (Business, and Health & Fitness). These figures represent our own calculations once these results have been added, along with the results of exam appeals.

Given the uneven impact of the pandemic on school and college performance data, the government has said you should not make direct comparisons between the performance data for one school or college and another, or to data from previous years.

In 2020, in the absence of exams, students were awarded grades determined by the exam boards that were based on Centre Assessment Grades provided by the school and the exam boards’ algorithm. Although students performed well, it is not appropriate to publish detailed comparisons with previous years.
