GCSE Results 2019

Trinity Academy staff, pupils and families have been celebrating the successes of the first cohort of students to complete their studies at the Academy. We have much to celebrate and would like to highlight the following student achievements:

Vanessa achieving 6 grade 9s, 1 grade 8 and 3 grade 6s
Sofia achieving 1 grade 9, 2 grade 8s, 1 grade 7s and 6 grade 6s
Pedro achieving 1 grade 9, 1 grade 8, 3 grade 6s, 4 grade 5s and 1 grade A

Three subject areas achieving above National averages:

  • Spanish 75% achieved grade 4 and above; 45% achieved grade 7 or above.
  • French 78% achieved grade 4 and above; 44% achieved grade 7 or above.
  • Religious Studies 78% achieved grade 4 and above; 33% achieved grade 7 or above.

All pupils taking exams in their home language achieved grade 7/B or above.

The Academy congratulates all pupils achieving grades throughout the 9-1 scale. We must not lose sight of the higher demand across all subjects, including significantly more and longer examination papers. We credit all achievement and remain mindful of the challenges faced by our pupils, including those who joined the Academy during their final two years of study, many of whom came from backgrounds where English is an additional language or else were completely new to English.

The English Baccalaureate

The English Baccalaureate (commonly known as the EBacc) is a group of qualifications that keeps young people’s options open for further study and future careers. The EBacc is:
  • English Language and Literature
  • Mathematics
  • The Sciences
  • Geography and History
  • Modern Foreign Languages

Trinity Academy believes that all young people should have the opportunity to study these subjects and this is a core value within our school. In 2019, 65% of the cohort were entered for all five areas of the EBacc. This is the third highest rate of entry in Lambeth, and is significantly above the Lambeth (48%) and National (37%) averages.

The cohort achieved an EBacc average points score of 3.62 which is broadly in line with the Lambeth and National averages of 3.93 and 3.87 respectively.

Progress 8

The Academy’s Progress 8 score for 2019 is not included in the Department for Education (DfE) performance information due to the low coverage of the cohort, because more than 50% of the pupils included in the calculation do not have prior attainment data.

Staying in education or entering employment indicators

The values included in the DfE performance information for student destinations applies to 2017 leavers. The Class of 2019 is the first cohort of pupils to complete Key Stage 4 at the Academy and as such there is no information available.
