Exams

2020 has been a year unlike any other before it and, as such, had a significant impact on Year 11 students at Holbrook Academy, as it did with students up and down the country.

We have been so proud of the mature way in which Year 11 students have conducted themselves since the beginning of lockdown – firstly in accepting the fact that there would be no examinations for them to showcase just how much progress they made here in five years, but also how hard they have worked at home in preparation for life on their Post 16 journeys.

The way in which schools have reported their GCSE results this year has changed in line with government recommendations, but we are thrilled with the dedication to their studies shown by our outgoing Year 11 students over the five years spent with us and can share some of these resultant outcomes below:

  • 65% of students were awarded a Grade 4 or higher in English Language or English Literature
  • 31% of students were awarded a Grade 4 or higher in mathematics.
  • 79% of students were awarded a Grade 4 or higher in both English and maths.
  • 63% of students were awarded a Grade 5 or higher in both English and maths.
  • 75% of students were awarded a Grade 4 or higher in combined science.
  • 85% of students were awarded a Grade 4 or higher in triple sciences.
  • 100% of students were awarded a Grade 4 or higher in MFL subjects.
  • 56% of students were awarded the Ebacc at Grade 4.
  • 95% of students were awarded the Ebacc at Grade 5.
  • 87% of students were awarded Grade 8 or 9 in all subjects.
  • 74% of students were awarded Grade 7 and above in all subjects.
