Haybridge Roman Catholic School


Now that the dust has settled into a new term under the headship of Mrs Suzanne Horan, we have

reflected on this summer’s examination results.

Hagley Catholic High School is delighted to report record breaking A level results from our Sixth

Form. 100% of the entries secured success at Advanced Level this summer. Students and staff worked tremendously

hard to ensure that well over half of all grades awarded were at grade B or higher. Outstandingly, over 1 in 4 of all A

Level qualifications attained the highest A* & A grades, continuing to build on our successes over the last three years, as

a result of strategic developments within the Sixth Form. Overall, more than 80% of all results awarded are A*-C. These

fantastic results represent a dynamic shift in the standards of teaching & learning in our Sixth Form.

Students maintained our notable record of securing amongst the very best Average Point Score per student in

Worcestershire, with an average of 139 points for all students. This means that we anticipate well over a third of our

students to be immediately accepted into the Russell Group University of their choice.

In a year of expected volatility as a result of the introduction of new GCSE courses and grading, we are also delighted

to congratulate pupils and staff of Hagley Catholic High School who, once again, have met expectations by achieving

some fantastic GCSE results!

We are confident that pupils have made expected progress in line with the Government’s new Key Performance

Indicators. We are delighted that 82% of pupils have achieved grades 9 -4 in an English Language (88% in English

Literature) and an impressive 85% have secured the same standard in mathematics.

Whilst the new key performance indicators make clear comparisons with previous years very difficult, it can be identified

that 80% of the students secured the equivalent of 5 standard passes (Grades A*-C). It is very encouraging to report

that over a quarter of the entries secured the top grades (A*/A or 9 to 7 for the new courses).

The vast majority of our pupils secured 9 or 10 GCSEs with good grades, in both core and option subjects, demonstrating

the school’s commitment to delivering a broad and balanced curriculum to all students.

Recently retired Headteacher, Ted Hammond, says of the results “These results, once again, reflect the hard work

and dedication of both staff and students, which will allow our pupils to progress onto positive and appropriate post-16
