Performance

At key stage 4, students are offered a curriculum of robust qualifications in which they achieve well. The curriculum is predominately GCSE and students are fully supported through the options process in selecting courses that are appropriate to their future aspirations.

A small number of non-GCSE qualifications are available to students and a small group of students currently undertake work-based off-site learning alongside their GCSEs. All students take GCSE English language, English literature, mathematics and at least two sciences.

Students at Mary Webb School and Science College perform significantly above the national average in their GCSE’s and have done so for the past three years. This represents good progress from their key stage 2 starting points which are in line with the national average. In 2014, 100% of students achieved five or more passes at GCSE grades A*-G, 75% of these at higher grades of C+ and one quarter of all examination entries went on to achieve an A or A*. The proportion of students achieving five or more GCSE passes at A*-C including English and mathematics remains consistently above the national figure at 60%.  62% of students made expected progress in English in 2014, 76% made expected progress in mathematics.  The proportion of students who achieved the English Baccalaureate is above the national average at 25%. 

At Mary Webb School and Science College the curriculum is constantly under review to ensure that it meets the needs of the students and this is reflected in the changing nature of the curriculum in place at key stage 4. Students leave the school well prepared for the next stage in their lives: at 97.4%, the percentage of students settled in full time activity beyond school is above the county average, with more students continuing in full time education and taking up apprenticeships.
