School Performance

2018

Burnt Mill Academy is once again celebrating “outstanding” GCSE results.

As one of the top achieving schools in the country, more than half of Year 11 students at the school, in Harlow, achieved the new grade 5 – considered a strong pass nationally – in both English and maths.

In the core subjects of English, maths and science, 51 students achieved the sought-after grade 9 – an achievement only reached by 0.2 per cent of students nationally.

The top scores of grade 9 to 7 were achieved by 16 per cent of students in English language, 23 per cent in English literature, 25 per cent in maths, 24 per cent in biology, 16 per cent in chemistry and 14 per cent in physics.

The 2017 summer exam season saw students sitting the new grade 9 to 1 GCSEs for the first time in maths and English, with the majority of other subjects switching to the new format this year.

The 9 to 1 numerical grades do not map across in a simple way to the A* to G grades. A grade 9 is not comparable to an A*, for example.

At Burnt Mill, 72 per cent of students this year achieved the equivalent of the old five or more A* to C grades including English and maths.

Head of school Laura McGlashan said: “I would like to thank all of our students, staff and parents for their hard work and continued support. The staff at Burnt Mill are dedicated and passionate and go above and beyond and our students’ hard work and commitment to their studies is testament to their success.

“I am immensely proud of the students and their achievements.”

2017

The 2017 summer exam season saw students sitting the new grade 9 to 1 GCSEs for the first time in maths and English, with staff having to prepare students for examinations no one had sat or seen.

The maths and English GCSEs were new exams with different content and exam paper styles. The new 9 to 1 numerical grades do not map across in a simple way to the A* to G grades. This dramatic break from what has gone before means any comparison of this year’s GCSE maths and English scores with previous years is meaningless. The headline figures incorporating maths and English grades which schools have quoted in the past consequently cannot be used again.

The 9 to 1 grades students have achieved in maths and English and the A* to G grades for their other subjects will be used by the Department for Education to calculate Attainment 8 and Progress 8 figures for all schools. These will be available in the autumn term.

A total of 79% of students achieved the national standard or above in maths, while 73% achieved the national standard or above in combined English. An impressive 24% of all GCSE grades were A* or A, with 53% of all grades awarded at A* to B. A total of 97% of Year 11 students were awarded at least five A* to C grades.

High achieving students this year include -

  • Hayleigh Luck with 9 in English and 9 in maths and 8 A*/A grades.
  • Charlie Deamer with 9 in English language and English literature.
  • Tara Mapp-Pope with top grades in English and maths and 7 A*/A grades.
  • Michael Prince with 9 in maths and 7 A*/A grades.

Proud headteacher John Blaney said: "I would like to thank all of our students, staff, and parents for their hard work and continued support. Staff at Burnt Mill go above and beyond. Our students put in the additional hours and it really does pay off. I am immensely proud of all they have achieved.”

2016

Burnt Mill Academy is celebrating after an impressive 83 per cent of its students gained top marks in both their English and mathematics GCSE exams. As students collected their results from this summer's exams, it was revealed the majority had scored A* to C grades in the core subjects, despite a national dip in results.

The number of students achieving A* and A grades also leapt this year to 66.3 per cent, compared to 42 per cent last year.

Overall last year, a total of 80% of Burnt Mill students achieved five or more A* to C grades including English and maths – this year that figure had upped to 81%.

The top ten students in the year group are –

  • Lauren Nicholson with five A* grades and six A grades
  • Lucy Palmer with four A* grades and seven A grades
  • Amy Richardson with four A* grades, six A grades and one B grade
  • Jordan Chow with four A* grades, four A grades and two B grades
  • Maria Kruger with three A* grades, five A grades and three B grades
  • LaurenLegate with two A* grades, seven A grades and two B grades
  • Sophie Manning with two A* grades, six A grades and three B grades
  • Maria Johnson with two A* grades, six A grades and two B grades
  • Bradley Gosnell with two A* grades, five A grades and two B grades
  • Ashley Banham with one A* grade, seven A grades and two B grades

Headteacher John Blaney said: "I am absolutely delighted the hard work of our fantastic students and amazing staff has paid off. For the third year in a row, more than 80% of our Year 11 students leave with at least five GCSE grades, including English and maths. Even amid the curriculum changes that have taken place, these results prove great teaching is what impacts most. It really is an amazing achievement. Congratulations to them all."
