Year 11 Results 2022 PRESS RELEASE​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​

Welling School is celebrating Year 11 results day. Initial analysis indicates excellent achievements by so many students as well as impressive performance in a range of measures and subjects

●    Performance in English and Maths has improved and out-performed the last set of examination results in 2019. More students have achieved more ‘standard’ passes in both subjects with an even more significant increase in the number of students achieving ‘strong’ passes.

●    This year has seen a dramatic increase in the number of students achieving the very highest grade 9 in any qualification - with 100% increase in this measure.

●    Over 41% of subject entries have been awarded the highest grades of a ‘strong pass’ at grades 9 to 5.  The following subjects saw significant improvement in the strong pass measure compared to 2019, Biology by 15%, English Language by 40%, History by 60%, Maths 20%, Fine Art, Food Technology and Photography by 100%

●    We are particularly proud of the significantly increased achievement in English, English Literature, Business Studies, Sport and Art, with 100% pass rate in Arabic, Business Studies, Childcare, German, Greek, Health & Social Care, Italian and Portuguese.

●    Half the year group have achieved good passes in 5 or more subjects including English and Maths, with an impressive quarter of students achieving strong passes or higher, in the same measure.

●    Another impressive increase in achievement is the number of ‘highest’ grades (8 and 9 or equivalent) that students have achieved. A significant number of these grades are in Maths, History, English Language, English Literature, Physics and Spanish. In addition we are also proud that an impressive 61% of grades achieved in Business Studies were awarded a Distinction* and Distinction. The proportion of 8 and 9 grades has increased by 20% and 70% respectively compared to 2019.

Executive Headteacher, Daniel Hatley said: ‘I am delighted to be able to congratulate so many students on their considerable and well deserved achievements. Our initial data shows excellent increases in attainment despite the significant impact the pandemic will have had on students, their education and their lives. This means students have achieved even more through even harder work. It also means that more students now have the currency they need to move one step further towards the career or university of their choice – something which is extremely important to us at Welling School. This year’s results are a reflection of the dedication, commitment and sheer hard work of our brilliant students, fantastic staff and the excellent support of the families we work with.’
