Manor School students celebrate exam success
There is much to celebrate at Manor School. There are encouraging signs that during current turbulent times due to national changes to curriculum, exams and grading, Manor School students continue to perform well. Year 11 GCSE students have coped well in a particularly challenging year as they are the first cohort to face a new grading system in maths and English, which grades exam outcomes from 9-1 for the first time instead of A*-C.
A range of subjects have continued to improve their outcomes with many achieving at a level above the national average. Many individual students have performed exceptionally well, achieving the new top grades of 8 and 9 as well as A* and A in a variety of subjects.
In addition, it is particularly pleasing that we have had strong improvements and some outstanding performances in our vocational subjects to a level that is above the national average. These results mean that we are really delivering on our school ethos of ‘Success for All’.
I would like to thank all of the students for their dedication and hard work, and Manor School staff for providing the expertise and commitment to enable our students to achieve. It is also necessary to recognise the support and guidance provided by parents and carers during this important time in the lives of our young people.
I wish all our students at the end of Key Stage 4 and 5 every success in the next steps of their chosen pathway.
