St Joseph’s pupils (class of 16/17) have every right to call themselves one of our most successful year groups ever. Pupils made excellent progress, with over 68% achieving a Grade 4 or above in Maths and 75% in English. Overall, pupils achieved 68% 9-4 including Maths and English. 46% of all GCSE entries resulted in an A* – B (7,8,9) grade, a reflection of the hard work and dedication of both pupils and their teachers.

The value added measure shows that our pupils outstrip the national target, and that year on year, we are adding value to our pupils’ education. Pupils that join us later, either from overseas, other areas or schools benefit from our supportive environment and make excellent progress in their time with us. We are confident that the progress indicator for schools which will be published in the autumn will show our continued ability to add value to pupils and give them the best possible opportunity to succeed in the next stage of their lives.

Our More Able pupils benefit from additional intervention and experiences and this year their education at St Joseph’s clearly enabled them to achieve the top grades. 

St Joseph’s is committed to ensuring an excellent education for all our pupils, and we are proud to have had the opportunity to nurture and develop this year group.
