2016: Outstanding exam results at The Charter School again

The Charter School is an inclusive, state funded school, proud to be recognised as one of the top schools in the country for achievement at both GCSE and A Level. Students flourish regardless of their starting points or circumstances.

The highlights of the outstanding exam results achieved at GCSE and A Level this year are listed below.


75% of all students gained at least 5 GCSEs with grades A to C including English and Maths; and 28% of pupils achieved 5A*/A grades in their GCSEs.


43% of pupils gained the English Baccalaureate. 64% of pupils achieved at least one A*/A grade, and 57% of all grades were A* to B. Eleven pupils achieved 10 or more grades A*/A in their GCSEs.


A Level

41% of all students gained at least 3 A levels with A* to B grades (up from 33% in 2015). More than a third (34%) of all A level grades achieved at The Charter School were A*/A, and more than two thirds (67%) were A*- B (62% in 2015).  95% of BTEC grades achieved were Distinction*/Distinction.

63% of students achieved at least one A grade or equivalent and 14% achieved all A grades or higher. It is expected that the vast majority of students will progress to their first choice of university or college for further study, including 4 students heading to Oxford and Cambridge.
