GCSE Results 2020
With the cancellation of examinations last summer, results were replaced with awarded grades from the examination boards. These awarded grades are GCSE and A Level results and provide students with identical qualifications that can be used to access next steps in education or training.
Our Year 11 and 13 students worked incredibly hard throughout their two years and were rewarded with grades that reflected their efforts and progress. We are confident that had they sat their examinations they would have achieved very similar results to the final outcomes awarded this year. Congratulations and well done everyone.
Since the results were generated from Centre Assessed Grades rather than examinations taken, it is not appropriate to compare overall performance with previous years. What we do know is that our students were able to access the next steps in their learning or training, with vast numbers joining the Sixth Form to begin A Level qualifications or start at many of the top Universities from across the country with their undergraduate courses.

GCSE Results 2019
Another very successful year for our Year 11 students. Over 200 grade 9s were awarded to our students and more than 50 students achieved an average grade of 7 or higher (equivalent to old A-A*). Almost half of all grades awarded were 9-7.
In the core subjects of English and Maths, an excellent 90% of students achieved a grade 4 or better (equivalent to a C grade) and 76% achieved grade 5 and above.
The average attainment score of 6.3 shows the consistently high attainment of our students, particularly since we are a non-selective school.
One of the most notable aspects of school performance has been consistency: the Progress 8 score has been +0.8 for the past three years, meaning that Sandringham students achieve on average nearly a grade higher at Sandringham than their peers with the same start point nationally.
30% Grade 9-8 (old A*)
48% Grade 9-7 (old A and A*)
92% Grade 9-4 (old A*-C)
76% Grade 5 + in English and Mathematics
90% Level 4 + in English and Mathematics
6.3 Average Attainment 8 score (average of grade B across all subjects)
Progress 8 : +0.83
|English and Mathematics – Standard Pass (grade 4)||90%||91%||85%|
|English and Mathematics – Strong Pass (grade 5)||76%||80%||75%|
