A Summary of Examination Results and Progress Data 2015-2018

We are delighted to announce that students at Burton Borough have done very well once again with successes in both vocational and academic courses, reflecting the inclusive nature of our school.  Our top 5 attaining students achieving 47 grades 7 to 9 (A to A**) between them are Dylan Lane-Craddock, Amara Otero-Salgado, Paa Appoh, Holly Thomas and Teagan Lindley.  Students who made exceptional progress from key stage two include Lewis Talbot, Louis Arrowsmith, Eliza Ensor, Demi-Lee Baker and Emily Monk.  All of our students showed dedication and hard work throughout their time with us and we are very proud with what they have achieved.  

Subjects that performed particularly well include Art, Btec Sport, GCSE PE, Business Studies, Drama and Music.

Thank you to all our students, staff and families who have worked incredibly hard as a team this year to ensure our students reach their full potential.  In addition, we would like to thank the community of Newport for all of your support and kind comments congratulating our students and staff.

Congratulations to the Class of 2019!
