Record Progress for Ark Kings Students
Another successful set of GCSE results has demonstrated that Ark Kings students make significantly more progress than the national average and as a result Ark Kings is likely to be named as being in the top 10% of schools nationally for student progress.
With a record Progress 8 score of +0.5 (estimated), Ark Kings Academy students make significantly better progress than the national average. Year 11 students have also matched the previous record best Attainment 8 score of 4.4.
Performance in English Baccalaureate subjects continues to be strong with 63% of pupils achieving A*-C in English, along with 60% in science, 61% in additional science, 88% in Geography, 54% in mathematics and 51% in languages. Almost 50% of students achieved A*-C in both GCSE English and maths, with almost 30% of students achieving A*-C across the EBacc.
Performance in the Arts is excellent with 100% A*-C in GCSE Art and GCSE Music. Results in GCSE PE are also strong with 60% A*-C. This is testment to hard work of students and staff and the support from parents and carers. We wish our outgoing Year 11 cohort the very best as they take their well earned examination grades onward toward college, apprenticeship, further training or employment.
