In 2020, A Level and GCSE qualifications were awarded as centre assessed grades due to the forced school closures and cancellation of the summer examinations as a result of the Covid-19 pandemic. Grades were awarded following the guidance outlined by Ofqual. Information on the awarding process can be found here: Summer 2020 grades for GCSE, AS and A Level – 11/08/2020
The class of 2019 at Ossett Academy and Sixth Form College recorded the following headline outcomes:
We are pleased that 72% of students gained grade 4 qualifications in both English and Mathematics with 48% of students securing grade 5 ‘strong pass’ in both subjects. We achieved an Attainment 8 score of 48.42 and a Progress 8 Score of -0.06 for our year 11 in 2019 (up from -0.19 in 2018).
The percentage of students entered for the English Baccalaureate (Ebacc) was 32%. To enter the Ebacc, students must take up to 8 GCSEs or equivalents, across the 5 subject ‘pillars’ of English Language and English Literature, maths, sciences, a language and History or Geography. In 2019, 21.19% of students achieved the Ebacc, so students got a grade 5 or above in English and maths, and a grade 5 or above in the science, humanities and language pillars of the Ebacc.
Our Sixth Form students once again achieved another excellent set of results in 2019. With an increase in both the A*-A (21%) and A*-B (42%) achievement rates. The average grade for A-Level students also rose to a C+ with an attainment score above the national average. In addition, 94% of all BTEC entries were graded at a Distinction or above with an average grade of a Distinction*, continuing our outstanding levels of progress within vocational subjects. These results have enabled a high proportion of students to gain entry into their first choice University or Apprenticeship. In particular this year we have had 70% of students attending University with 25% of these attending a Russell Group University. Well done to all of our Sixth Form students and we wish them all the best of luck in their future careers.
We are extremely proud of all of our students and their hard work that was rewarded in this year’s examinations.
