The school's policy on estimating grades for 2021.

 

To help parents appreciate the confident track record of achievement that Poole High School provides, we have outlined some detail for the years 2019 - 2021 results.

SUMMER 2021

Key Stage 4 & Sixth Form

GCSE results in 2021 were awarded using Teacher Assessed Grades (TAGs). We undertook the awarding process with great care and diligence to ensure all students received a fair and balanced set of results that enabled progression to their next stage of education. Our pass rates in English and Maths remain high, with over 72% of our students achieving a grade 4+ in both English and Maths, and 51% at grade 5+. Our progress metrics are consistent with our strong outcomes in previous years. Students receiving their results this year have performed exceptionally well given the unique circumstances surrounding the year, and this is a testament to their level of care and effort throughout their years of study.

At Post-16, we celebrated a record 90% of our large sixth form progressing to university. This year, we are pleased to announce that 22% of our applicants gained places at a range of prestigious Russell Group universities. Courses this year which proved popular included Psychology, Law, Architecture, Mathematics, Criminology, History, Mechanical Engineering. With over 86% of all our sixth form students achieving a grade A*-C at A-Level, students have once again achieved strongly at our vibrant and successful sixth form. Our large school and sixth form enables us to provide our students with an unprecedented level of choice when compared to other local providers for post-16 study. All our courses are expertly delivered by highly skilled subject specialists.

SUMMER 2020

Key Stage 4 & Sixth Form

GCSE results in 2020 were awarded using Centre Assessed Grades (CAGs). We undertook this process with great care and diligence to ensure all students received a fair and balanced set of results that enabled progression to their next stage of education. Once again our progress placed us in a highly favourable position nationally; more important – even more students attained strong passes in English and Maths than in previous years. The year-on year trend of continuous incremental improvement is testament to the highest standard of teaching for pupils of all abilities.

At Post-16, we celebrated a record 72% of our large sixth form progressing to university. We are particularly proud that 21% of our applicants gained a place at a range of prestigious Russell Group universities. Popular courses our brilliant students have selected for university study this year include Business & Management, Law, Biomedical Science, History, Computer Science, and Criminology.

With over 82% of all our sixth form students achieving a grade A*-C at A-Level, students have once again achieved strongly. Congratulations to all Poole High School alumni!
