Class of 2022 — Examination Results
2022 marked the return to traditional exams in all subjects. We are currently awaiting the formal DfE data, however, we are immensely proud of all the work and achievements of the classes of 2022, so we want to share headline results alongside some fantastic individual achievements.
Results have continued a year-on-year improvement trend compared to the 2019 results.
A core measure of our success is the percentage of students who achieve 5+ in both Maths and English. We are delighted that this has increased by 12% compared to 2019 (from 38% to 50%)
The school is also particularly proud of our strong performance in the Ebacc. In order to achieve the Ebacc, pupils need to study English Language, English Literature, Mathematics, Science, Geography or History, and a modern foreign language. The Ebacc combination is regarded as the gold standard for educational achievement, and 75% of Gladesmore pupils study this combination. Achievement in the Ebacc is measured through the Ebacc Average Point Score, and Gladesmore's Average Point Score was 4.7, which is well above the national average.

Classes of 2020 & 2021 — Examination Results
The government did not publish performance data for any schools or colleges for 2020 & 2021 due to the varying impact of the pandemic. However, Gladesmore Community School is immensely proud of all the work and achievements of the classes of 2020 & 2021, so we want to share headline results.
Clarification: In 2020 and 2021, national exams were cancelled due to the pandemic. Grades were awarded through a process of centre assessed grades. These centre assessed grades were then ratified by the exam boards.
Despite the difficult circumstances of the pandemic, Gladesmore pupils have once again demonstrated just what can be achieved with a positive attitude, determination and sheer hard work.
