GCSE EXAM RESULTS
GCSE Results Summer 2020
This year, Foundry College has had one of its largest Year 11 cohorts to prepare for GCSEs and the next stage in their life’s journey. The students have been through the trauma of partial school closure, remote learning and social isolation…. It has been an unbelievably difficult year, far from ideal preparation for starting a new education or apprenticeship opportunity. All credit to the students for their perseverance and resilience during these final months of their education. Where many would have downed tools, our students rose to the challenge and continued with their learning and personal development to the end.
I am delighted to endorse that our students have been awarded their centre-assessed grades. These grades were derived through a rigorous and meticulous process involving a considerable amount of data and evidence. We believe that these individual outcomes are therefore fair and well-deserved.
We would like to congratulate all our students on their many and varied accomplishments, which of course extend well beyond academic success. We are proud of their commitment and wish them every success in the future.
I would also like to thank the staff for their relentless and creative support of our students: their learning, wellbeing and development, throughout their time at Foundry College and especially during the more recent challenges.
“You care deeply about the pupils and are determined to make sure that your school provides the nurturing environment that they need.”
“Pupils are happy at your school, they say that there is always someone to talk to and that their views are valued. Parents and carers praise the improvements in their children’s behaviour and attitudes to learning.”
“You and your team are acutely aware of the importance of ensuring that every pupil is safeguarded from harm.”
Student Outcomes 2018-19
The Staff and Management Committee are delighted to celebrate the results of our 2018-2019 cohort.
Foundry College is more than a school where staff deliver the curriculum. We are an environment where pupils are able to learn for life through a wealth of different experiences and enrichment opportunities. Staff support our pupils not only as highly qualified experts in their different curriculum fields, but also as daily mentors. Our educational expertise, personal commitment and dedication to improving the life experiences of vulnerable young people make significant contributions to building pupils' resilience and fostering a culture of mutual respect and co-operation.
Our primary focus is to work hard with pupils to help them secure the best outcomes they can and to improve their chance of success in further education, training or employment.
One student was eligible for KS1 SATs and was assessed to be at the National standard.
One of two students eligible for KS2 SATs was assessed to be at the National standard. The second student was disapplied by their home school.
The summer 2019 cohort once again exceeded realistic expectation with 15 of 19 students achieving at least one level 2 qualification.
All 19 students were entered for a qualification in both English and Maths, with 9 students achieving GCSE passes in each subject and 7 students achieving passes in both GCSE English and GCSE Maths. 8 students were entered for double Science, with 7 students achieving at least one grade 4 and 4 students achieving passes in both GCSEs.
Qualifications were also obtained in a further thirteen other subjects, including a range of traditional academic GCSEs and a selection of vocational options.
Thank you to everyone involved in the partnership without which these excellent outcomes for our pupils would not have been possible.
