The impact of the cancellation of the summer 2020 exams meant that all students nationally received the highest grades from those submitted to the exam boards by their teachers or the exam board calculated grade. Students at Anthony Gell School were awarded grades that fully reflected the progress and learning that they demonstrated prior to lockdown. On both A Level and GCSE results days our students were able to arrive in school to receive their exam grades with the majority celebrating their results and were then able to confidently plan for a successful transition.
In 2019, there was an impressive 98% and 100% pass rate for students in Maths and English respectively. AGS students achieved at least a grade 5 as an average grade in sixteen different subjects. As a result, a record number of students gained places in the Sixth Form at Anthony Gell, whilst others have secured highly rated apprenticeships or alternative training pathways.
The Progress 8 figure of 0.12 shows the school to be in 8th place in the county and among those schools who gained much better results for their learner than similar schools nationally.
The results achieved by students in Year 13 placed AGS in the top 25% of schools in England. In addition, students made outstanding progress in different areas of the curriculum and achieved results in many subjects which will result in AGS being placed firmly in the top 10% of schools nationally in these qualifications.
The school continues to provide a broad curriculum which includes a range of Vocational qualifications and in these areas 80% of students achieved outstanding grades of ‘Distinction’ or ‘Distinction Star’.
98% of our AGS students continued their journey in education, or entered employment.
