Exams

 

We are very proud of the hard work and achievements of our founding students here at Hoe Valley School and delighted with the outcomes and progress they have made since joining the School in 2015.

Due to the lockdown at the end of March 2020 and Spring 2021 which led to the cancellation of the GCSE exams for the summers of 2020 and 2021, our students did not get the chance to show what they would have achieved in formal exams. Instead, schools were asked to use their professional experience to make a fair and objective judgement of the grades they believed a student would have achieved had they sat their exams, and to submit these centre-assessed grades (CAGs) to the relevant exam board.

These results represent the end of one phase of each student’s education, and the opportunity to acknowledge and celebrate what they have accomplished. We are delighted to be able to congratulate the Classes of 2020 and 2021 for their many achievements and to wish them well as they move on to the next phase of their lives with our full support and best wishes.

We look forward to sharing our performance data from the summer 2022 exams in due course when they are published.

Please note: The DfE are not compiling or publishing any school performance figures for the academic year 2019-20 or 2020-21, and so in keeping with this, Surrey schools and others more widely will not be publishing school level performance figures for Summer 2020 or Summer 2021.

 

EBacc

The English Baccalaureate (EBacc) is an accountability measure for schools in England. It measures the proportion of students who secure a grade 5 or above in English, Maths, Science, a humanity and language GCSE. Arts subjects are not included.

In the Summer 2022 exams, 30% of our students have been entered for an EBacc.
