2018 Exam results

I am pleased to report a very strong set of examination results for Chadwell Heath Academy. Congratulations must go to our staff and pupils upon their excellent performance. All of these achievements reflect the effectiveness of our monitoring and support systems and the positive atmosphere of ambition that permeates the school. It is important to recognise that our performance is strong throughout the ability range and the results for our disadvantaged pupils are very strong. This reflects our ethos of ensuring that all pupils are nurtured and supported irrespective of their ability, needs or background. None of this would be possible without the support of our parents and governors for which we are most grateful.

GCSE 

In a year where there have further major changes in GCSE syllabuses and grading structures, our results have held firm the results are comparable to last year with a year group who had a slightly weaker KS2 profile.

Our success has been consistent throughout the ability range, of the 1635 (1,679) grades awarded (2017 figures):

  • 12% (9%) were A**, A*, 9, 8 or above
  • 24% (28%) were A/7 or above
  • 45% (52%) were A*, A, B, 9, 8, 7, 6 or above
  • 81% (82%) were C/4 or above
  • 98% (99%) of our students achieved 5+ A*/9 to G/1 grades
  • Only 8% (8%) of the grades awarded were below a D/3

Sixth Form

The complete range of grades, from A* to E, produced by our students combined with a pass rate of 98% at A-level is an outstanding performance for a school that has an open access 6th form, and I am proud to report that many students who would not be able to take A-levels in other schools have achieved their dreams and are going to university.

Destinations: 130 out 137 who applied to university have accepted places, the rest have not taken up offers at this stage. Our students are going on to attend at a wide range of prestigious institutions including LSE, Kings, Queen Mary, and Manchester, taking a variety of courses including Pharmacy, Mathematics, Economics, Law, History, English and Mathematics.

 The value of the CTEC / BTEC courses has really made its mark this year with students from these courses going on to universities such as Northampton and Kent. Those who combined two traditional A levels with a CTEC / BTEC have come out with three and a half level 3 qualifications, gaining more UCAS points than many who did just three A levels, and have gone on to study a range of subjects including Teaching and Architecture.

 Some students have chosen to take up apprenticeships including one very prestigious post at the Bank of England.

All of this demonstrates the quality of our careers advice and UCAS support programme.

These results demonstrate our continued ability to add value to our pupils’ education. Once again these achievements are only possible with the commitment and support of pupils, parents, teachers and governors.
