Mrs C Davis, Examinations Officer.


It gives me great pleasure to report our KS4 and KS5 results below and shows that in the Academy is making phenomenal progress.  We are providing a value added education for our students, regardless of starting points. The exam results for 2017 show that pupils are making significantly more progress than the national average. 2018 exam results continue to show this trend, with indications that the progress 8 score will continue to show pupils making progress above the national average.

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 -0.25, with the national average being 0, so with a figure of +0.15 students at Wrenn Academy make greater than national average progress. You can find more information regarding Progress 8 at

Our Year 13 students achieved some amazing results this year with 87% of students gained at least one A*-B grade, with over three quarters of students gaining at least one A*-A grade. The number of A*-B grades achieved increase by 16%. Progress from GCSE, especially in Vocational subjects, is above the national average and in 2018 we forecast Academic subject progress will also be at the national average (2018 Performance figures expected in November from the DfE).

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 2017/18 as we challenge all our students to raise their aspirations to achieve beyond their expectations.  The future is bright, the future is Wrenn.
