Mrs C Davies, Examinations Officer.

It gives me great pleasure to report our KS4 and KS5 results below and shows that in certain areas we are heading in the right direction.  We are providing a value added education for our students, regardless of starting points. However we are all very aware that this needs to improve significantly further in the years to come.

The P8 figure is the average progress that all our students made in 8 subjects, compared with their entry scores in year 7. The Ofsted floor standard for all schools in the country is -0.50, so with a figure of -0.35 Wrenn Academy is performing above the floor standard for the first time in 3 years. The key performance measures at KS4 are:

KS4 results      
  2016 Validated 2015 Unvalidated 2014 Unvalidated
Progress 8 -0.35 -0.56 -0.33
Attainment 8 4.45 4.06 4.24
% achieveing Ebacc 16% 13% 23%
% achieving a good pass (C) in English and Maths 38% 41.90% 40.70%


Our Year 12 and 13 students achieved some amazing results this year and our Year 13 produced the best results Wrenn Academy has ever had.  Using the new measures for our Year 12, their progress according to the L3VA ready reckoner (how much progress is made compared to GCSE results), shows a score of +0.54.  This is an incredible three quarters of a grade higher in every subject compared to the Year 13 cohort, showing an outstanding level of value added to every students education.

Our results this year show that Wrenn students are making progress, which is testimony to our hard working staff and work ethos of our young people.  This upward trend will continue throughout 2016/17 as we challenge all our students to raise their aspirations to achieve beyond their expectations.  The future is bright, the future is Wrenn.
