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. 

This year’s GCSE and A Level results had to be awarded differently, after exams were unable to go ahead due to Covid-19. Schools and colleges were asked to use their professional experience to make a fair and objective judgement of the grades they believed a student would have achieved had they sat their exams this year.  The judgements were based on work that the student had already done and centre-assessed grades (CAGs) were submitted to the relevant exam board.

We were delighted to see our Year 11 students rewarded for their efforts with realistic and excellent grades.  Our students worked incredibly hard and showed resilience in a very difficult time amid enormous stress.  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.

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:
