Barr's Hill School Celebrates It's Best Ever Exam Results
This year, Barr’s Hill School secured its best ever GCSE results, making the school one of the most
improved schools in Coventry. This is even more impressive given the national trend where GCSE grades dipped. 52% of our students achieved an A*- C grade in English and Maths.
16% of students in English and in Maths achieved the very highest grades (A*A) at GCSE.
In English, 8 out of every 10 students made at least the progress they were supposed to make between age 11 and age 16, and over half of our students achieved one grade higher than they were
expected to between age 11 and 16, well above national average.
At Barr’s Hill School, students whose first language isn’t English make just as much progress, achieving a C or better in English and Maths, as those whose first language is English.
The number of students at Barr’s Hill School’s Sixth Form achieving A*-A grades doubled in 2016.
Almost 30% of students achieved A*, A or B grades at A level.
In vocational subjects, those students achieving a merit or better (equivalent to B grade at A level) was an impressive 82%.
