Exam Results 2023

EXCEPTIONAL GCSE & POST 16 RESULTS 2023

We are extremely proud of our students who achieved the exceptional grades they deserved this summer, despite disruption to their lower school years during the pandemic.

Ofqual announced a fall in grades this year as we returned to full national exams, but this was not the case for Allerton students. There were some fantastic achievements by individual students and across a broad range of subjects and overall.

All of the results achieved by our 2023 cohorts are well above national averages and very strong within the city.

A Progress 8 score of zero means that students achieved what they were expected to based on their Year 6 results. A school’s Progress 8 is usually between -0.5 and +0.5.  +0.65 is described as well above average. It means that AHS students achieved between half a grade and a grade higher in every subject than other students across England with similar Year 6 SATs results as them.

Additional headlines:

  • 78% achieved Grade 5-9 in English and 85% Grade 5-9 in Maths

· 88% achieved Grade 4-9 in English and 93% Grade 4-9 in Maths

· Over 50% of students achieved at least a Grade 7 in English or Maths

· Progress was strong for every group of students (low, middle and high ability, SEND, disadvantaged) and all subject groups.

· Progress in Maths was the highest in the city at 1.14

· 75% of students made above average progress (had positive Progress 8 scores)

*During September there is an exam review period where papers can be re-marked, and as a result of this some students had their grades raised. The figures reported on the DfE site are slightly lower than those we’ve reported here because they don’t yet include grade increases which happened in September

 

Allerton High School Post-16 results (2023)

There are no value added/progress measures for Post-16 students this year. Normally, the Department for Education calculates progress using students’ GCSE grades as a baseline but because the 2023 cohort received teacher-assessed GCSE grades (TAGs) in 2021 rather than sitting national GCSE exams, the government will not use these.

However, our Year 13 cohort had similar starting points to our 2019 cohort and the grades they achieved were in line with 2019 when we were placed top in Leeds for Value Added (VA) and well above national average (VA was +0.30 in 2019). This suggests strong progress from our 2023 cohort.

 

Below are the attainment measures which will be reported in school and college performance tables early next year. 2023 national averages are not yet available.
