Summer 2014

The exciting GCSE and A-Level results achieved by Wilton students in summer 2014 were ….

Year 13 The grades attained by Year 13 were in line with teacher expectation and predictions. 90% of the grades obtained by students were pass grades with 54% of the grades being the top A – B grades. The students who worked hard attained grades that reflected their effort. There were some commendable performances by some students, with one student attaining an amazing 5 A2 levels, One student attained 5 A2 levels and one AS level.

Year 12 The Year 12 AS results were encouraging. 67% of the grades attained were pass grades.

Year 11 The G.C.S.E.  results were  outstanding and probably the best we have attained to date at Wilton Campus, 95% of students attained 5+ G.C.S.E. 95% of students attained 5 + G.C.S.E passes including English Language. 83% of students attained 5 + G.C.S.E. passes including English Maths and a Science. 87% of students attained 5+ G.C.S.E. passes including one Science and Maths. All subject departments attained a positive ‘Value Added’ with a mean score of 1 which means through the hard work of the teachers and students all students on average gained a grade above their baseline predictions. There were some outstanding performances with students performing well above  their baseline predictions. There are so many students that have done exceptionally well. Nearly half  the grades obtained (47%) were the top A* or A Grades. 49% of the students obtained 10 or more G.C.S.E.  passes, with 74% of the students gaining 9 or more passes. One student attaining a total of 38 grades above her baseline CATS predictions. One boy obtained 8 A* grades and 2 A grades and one of the female student obtained 4 A* grades and 7 A grades.

Year 10 We were also pleased with the Science A results sat by Year 10 this year. All the students that were entered for the exam passed.

Summer 2013

2013 marked another very pleasing year for exam results at Wilton Campus.

Of the GCSE  results for last year, 84% of students achieved five or more GCSE grade A* to C. 63% of all grades achieved were the highest attainable; either grade A*, A or B. 63% of students achieved the benchmark of five GCSE grade ‘C’ or above including English Maths and Science; comfortably above the national average.

Perhaps more significantly was the value added score in the GCSE exams.  On average, across all subjects, students’ results were one grade higher that those predicted by external CATS assessments taken a year earlier.

In Year 13, results were similarly pleasing.  The sixth form courses are split between vocational and academic, and in both areas the results showed a considerable improvement on predicted grades.

The most popular vocational course at Wilton is the Level 3 BTEC Diploma in Business Studies, which is equivalent to two A-Levels. All students completing this course achieved a 100% pass rate at Merit level and above, and half of the BTEC students achieved the highest Double star distinction grade.

At A-Level 40% of all grades achieved were the highest attainable, either A*, A or B grade.  All students are encouraged to broaden their learning beyond pure academic subjects, and last year six students elected to do a self directed AS-level Extended Project.  Three of these six students achieved an A* with the reminder either an A or B grade.  One student also successfully piloted and completed the challenging AQA Baccalaureate qualification with Merit.

Altogether the school is justly proud of its ongoing record of results, which is all the more remarkable as Wilton Campus is non selective.
