Mr Cunningham went onto say, "It has been an anxious time for students due to some significant changes to GCSE qualifications of late and the possible impact these changes could have on their results. However, we are very pleased with the results overall and proud of their achievements".
Mr Cunningham commented further on the recent changes to the school performance tables and said, "Undoubtedly, our school performance figures will be affected as only one vocational qualification per student counts in the performance measures and some students have successfully passed more than one vocational subject which are therefore not included as well as those GCSE subjects students took earlier in Year 10 and 11 such as Statistics. Not to include all the qualifications students achieve seems unfair on schools; after all, teachers work tremendously hard to ensure all their students do as well as they can irrespective of whether or not the grades count".
Overall Moor Park has again exceeded the government’s floor targets and continued to maintain high standards of achievement with progress in English and Maths in line with national averages.
Congratulations go to Year 11 who achieved excellent results despite tougher tests. Well done!
