It is with great pleasure and pride in our students and staff that I introduce the examination results for 2020.This year, as you are aware GCSE and A–level students did not actually sit their public examinations.  After extensive and rigorous processes in school, students were awarded Centre Assessed Grades. These grades were based on the hard work of the students up until school closure in March.

Once again, our students have performed extremely well at GCSE and A-level and I would like to congratulate all of the students in Years 11 and 13. It gives me a real sense of pride seeing the youngsters rewarded for their hard work and successfully moving on to the next stage of their lives.

Year 11

Our GCSE grades were the highest that they have ever been.  The number of the highest grades was a record.

  • 19% of all GCSE grades were 9 or 8
  • 132 students achieved at least one top grade (8 or 9)
  • 44 students achieved at least 5 top grades (8 or 9)
  • 34% of GCSE grades were graded 9 to 7
  • 89 students achieved 5 or more grades at 7 or above
  • 68% of GCSE grades were graded 9 to 5

The government has introduced new measures of accountability for schools. At Haydon School 86% of students got a standard pass (Grade 4 or higher) in English and Mathematics and 60% got a good pass in both English and Mathematics (Grade 5 or higher).  

Year 13

The Year 13 A-level results were very good: 58% of grades were at A* to B and 82% at A* to C.
I have recently received the report from UCAS on the destinations of our Year 13 students going to university: 153 Haydon School students are looking forward to starting at University at the end of September; 43 students have been accepted at a Russell Group University.

It is a very exciting time for the students and I wish them every success in the coming years. Just to give you a flavour of the destinations that our students will be attending:

  • Aston, Birmingham, Brunel, Cardiff, City, Cambridge, Exeter, Leicester, Kingston, Loughborough, Leeds, Nottingham, Portsmouth, Queen Mary College, School of African and Oriental Studies (SOAS), Sheffield, Southampton, Sussex, University College London, Warwick.

Other students have secured or are looking for employment and some have chosen to take time out before continuing their studies or embarking on a career. I wish all of them every success in the coming years.

It is a strength of Haydon that the majority of our students stay with us from Year 7 to Year 13. Parents can be confident that their son or daughter will be guaranteed high quality education throughout the crucial secondary years.

2017 Examination Results 

In 2017 the Year 13 A-Level and BTEC National results were excellent: 53% of grades were at A* to B and 76% at A* to C.  This was a significant improvement on the 2016 results. The total number of students going on to University in September 2017 currently stands at 181 including 58 to Russell Group Universities, the most challenging to get into.  We have had almost identical figures in each of the last four years.  In Year 12 the results were also outstanding.  The A to B at 46% gives the students a good platform on which to build. 

At GCSE 76% of students achieved a good pass in English and mathematics and 70% of students gained 5 A* to C passes including English and mathematics.  24% of all entries were graded A or A* or 7, 8 or 9 and 54% were graded A* to B or 6, 7, 8, or 9.  In mathematics, 79% of students achieved grades 4 to 9 and 58% 5 to 9 and in English 84% achieved grades 4 to 9 and 74% 5 to 9.
