A-level Performance Data

Please use this link to access the Government's Performance Data website. 

In 2021, 74 candidates sat 3 or 4 A-levels at NGHS. The average grade was A- with an academic points score of 48.9. The school achieved progress figures of about 0.5 of a grade higher than expectation. Given the high starting points of students in our Sixth Form (their high GCSE results) this is very pleasing. 

In 2021, 40% of A-level grades were A* and 85% were graded A*-B.

Students who remained at NGHS from Year 11, and those who had Free School Meals all achieved particularly positive L3VA scores.

Retention rate in sixth form in 2019 = 99%. 100% of students left NGHS to move onto higher education, training or employment.
