Performance Measures

At Spires Academy we are very proud of all our students’ achievements.  There is a culture of continual improvement in recent years that has resulted in improved student performance. 

In the summer 2019 results we were delighted to see our Year 11 students rewarded for their efforts with excellent grades.  Our students have worked incredibly hard and shown resilience in a time of exam reform which caused enormous stress for all.  They were supported by our team of committed and talented staff. We are extremely proud of our school community which continues to go from strength to strength.

The unvalidated results will be published in October 2019 with fully validated results available in January 2020.

Results for students who attended Spires Academy full time for their KS4 study (excluding those who attended the local Medical PRU, Inclusion Service and Alternative Placement provisions) are as follows:
