Exam Results 2018

At Mark Hall Academy we’re proud of the success of our students. We believe that we create a climate in which all students can achieve and we provide the motivation for continuing the drive for better and higher standards in order to prepare them well for the next stage in their lives. When our students leave us, we know they’ll be well equipped for achieving yet more success.

Key Stage 4

The number of pupils achieving higher grades continues to improve in the context of new national measures and examinations that are more difficult. 2018 continued to see a rise in the number of higher grades awarded, including 12 grade 7-9 in Mathematics, and 9 grade 7-9 in English

In English, 62% of pupils achieved a grade 4 – 9 (equivalent C grade or above) and in Mathematics 70% achieved a        grade 4 -9.

18% of our students achieved the EBacc suite of qualifications, which includes English, mathematics, two sciences, a modern foreign language and a humanities’ subject.

We are very proud that our students successfully secure places in education, employment or training when they leave us.
