Exam Information 2018

Trinity pupils rose to the challenge of the new more academically rigorous GCSE exams in all subjects this year by achieving some excellent results across a wide range of subjects.  A comprehensive school, Trinity has a true mix of pupils ranging from those who are academically able through to those that struggle with reading and writing.  Support and intervention is specific to each individual. As a small school we are able to tailor the support to meet the needs of each pupil.

Destinations data shows for the third year in a row we have 25% of our cohort moving on to grammar schools and take up scholarships at Independent schools.  Around 70% go on to study A Levels and the rest go on to do a mix of apprenticeships, Level 3 vocational qualifications and combined A Level and vocational courses.

A8 (Attainment 8) comes out at 46 which is in line with National Average

P8 (Progress 8) is significantly better than last year and in-line with National Average.  The national algorithm has not yet been released – so we do not have this actual figure yet.  Based on last year’s formula we come out just below 0.

English 4 + = 76%                                              English 5+ = 58%

Maths 4 + = 78%                                               Maths 5 + = 54%

English and Maths 4+ = 71%                        English and Maths 5+ = 42%

English Baccalaureate (Ebacc) - 70% were entered for the Ebacc suite of qualifications.  This includes English, Maths, Science, either History or Geography and a Modern Foreign Language.  Average Point Score (APS) was 4.3.

Individual pupil success

  • Two students achieved five Grade 9's and three Grade 8's. One has a full scholarship at the City of London School and the other secured a place to study 4 A Levels at a local grammar school.
  • Another achieved four Grade 9's and five Grade 8's – he has a full scholarship to Colfes.
  • 12% of the whole year gained a selection of grade 9’s (highest achieving grade- top 4% of the country) as well 21% of the cohort achieving a selection of Grade 8 qualifications.  Grade 7 is equivalent to the old grade A – and we had 41% of the cohort get at least one grade 7or higher.
  • We have 3 pupils who achieved the highest grade in the Free Standing Maths Qualification (which is at the same level as A Level maths) - all of which have sixth form places in independent or grammar schools. 
  • This is just a selection of the successes we had this academic year.  We work tirelessly to ensure all our pupils have a secured destination and we follow their achievements as they progress post 18.  From two years ago we have 2 pupils going on to Cambridge University, with a further large group moving onto Russell Group Universities – including some going onto Medicine.  We have also heard about numerous past pupils securing apprenticeships and jobs after sixth form.  Our pupils’ successes prove that they truly are terrific Trinitarians.
