A Summary of Examination Results and Progress Data 2017-2021

We are very pleased to announce that the Class of 2021 has done very well and achieved fantastic results this year.  Once again, 78% of our students passed the basics (both English and Maths) at grade 4 and above and our top 10 attaining students achieving a number of grades 9 to 7 (A** to A) between them.  Top achievers include Georgia Dutton-Johnson, Keira Adcock, Stephanie Tomkinson, Hannah Ash, Harriet Bailey, Grace Seymour, Kinga Stachowicz, Lucy-Anne Scott, Ffion Price and Munita Virk.  Students who made exceptional progress from KS2 include Imogen Heins, Calum Haycock, Ella Wood, Emily Oakey, James Winterbottom, Stephanie Tomkinson, Sadie Dain, Darcey Griffiths, Olivia Evans and Owen Lloyd.

Despite the Coronavirus pandemic and the uncertainty it has brought to our students, they have continued to work extremely hard and shown exceptional resilience and dedication with their online learning throughout each lockdown.  The results that they receive today are well-deserved and we know that each student has a wonderful future ahead of them.

Thank you to all students, families and staff for the remarkable work you have put in over the last five years and particularly the last 18 months as we have adapted to new ways of working to ensure that each and every single one of our students has been able to reach their full potential.  Thank you also to the community of Newport for the support that you have always shown us.
Congratulations Class of 2021!
