We will be updating this page with GCSE results from schools and colleges across the region as they come in.

Please note that some school results, as reported today, may be higher than those that will be reported in the league tables in January 2015. This is because some schools are including the results of students who re-sat exams. From next year, these will be excluded from the official league tables.

Results will appear alphabetically.

“Our 5 A*-C with English and Maths measure has fallen slightly and this is largely as a result of many of our vocational courses being discounted by the Government this year. Had the measure not changed during the year we would have seen another record set of results today.

It is great to know that, as well as leaving Aylsham High with some excellent academic and vocational qualifications, our students are also going out into the world as confident and articulate young men and women.

CITY ACADEMY

Percentage of students with 5+ A*-C including English & Maths: Not released (2013: 22pc)

Percentage of students with 5+ A*-C grades: Not released (2013: 33pc)

“We are pleased that this year’s GCSE results have improved on last year’s outcomes; however, we do not feel it is appropriate to release those results today given that we have a higher than usual number of students with borderline C/D grades in English and Maths whose marks we are appealing. The outcome of these appeals could significantly affect the Academy’s final confirmed figure for 5 A*-C GCSEs including English and Maths.

There are a number of real success stories, plenty of smiles and a school full of happy students. My thanks to all our students for being such fantastic young people and working so hard, to my superb staff for all their dedication and going the extra mile and to our parents for their support. My thanks also to the Governing Body whose support and challenge has helped us achieve these results.

Jim Nixon, headteacher.

“Particularly pleasing are the Academy progress figures - 82pc and 76pc making expected progress in english and maths respectively with 36pc and 35pc exceeding expected progress. These figures are well above national figures for 2013. 100pc of our students achieved at least one qualification and 98pc achieved at least 5 A* to G grades.

“This has been yet another year of significant turbulence in the examination system with the government warning schools and academies that results are likely to “look different” with grades possibly dropping due to raised standards. In light of these changes, I feel our Academy’s results look even more impressive. The vast majority of students are now able take up their places in further education courses of their choice where I am confident that they will continue to do well.” Rob Sherington, principal.

The positives are: rates of progress in English are now comparable to national averages, the proportion of students passing EBacc subjects and the progress of students eligible for Pupil Premium and with Special Educational Needs has improved.

The school has invested in developing English language and literature in the last three years, making it the backbone of the curriculum because of the influence it can have across the board. 74pc of students got A*C in English, and 71pc in English literature. We are particularly pleased with the results on first-entry performance and we wish our Year 11s the very best in future.” Glyn Hambling, headteacher.

This reflects a lot of hard work both by the students and by staff here at the school. Over the past 12 months since our last OFTSED inspection, we have been implementing a wide-ranging improvement plan, and these results are the first test of the effectiveness of that plan; I am very pleased to see positive results.

  • Well said Rhombus. As a supposedly experienced Head Teacher, Ms Missons should be aware, that if there is no good news to report, then it is better not to make a comment at all. A school’s achievement is about the achievement of all of its pupils, not just a select few. Hopefully her governors have instituted payment by results, in which case she will owe them a rebate for the last two years.

  • oops -Of course the corollary from the stated fact that "100% of high attaining students achieved 5 ACEM" and that the school had an overall 40% pass rate for 5 ACEM, is that significantly less than 40% of non high attaining students achieved 5 ACEM. I wonder which statistic Wendy will present to her board of governors?

  • Interesting point Rhombus. The whole statement made by Wendy Missons is meaningless. She may have well said that "100% of our girls are female which is better than most grammar schools" - the comment has no clarity whatsoever. This head teacher appears to be ideologically against the grammar schools of the past. When ideals get in the way of reality it is the students of that school which will suffer.

  • ....."100% of high attaining students achieved 5 ACEM, which is better than most grammar schools.” Wendy Missons, headteacher."....drilling down a bit, how many achieved A or A* in both Maths and English - according to Ofsted, 35% of high achievers currently reach this standard, which of course means they are well prepared for A level study. A C grade for a high achiever is in effect a failure, the 'gold standard' for high achievers being an A grade.

  • I really hope City Academy Norwich doesn't get a bad rap this year again, and both the school and the students get the results they deserve and have worked so hard for. It's worth remembering that it is not just the school's responsibility to ensure a good education for the children but also the parents. The surrounding area to CAN has long been a low achieving area and that doesn't go away over night. And this school also does a lot for the wider community, not just during school time but also throughout the holidays. In my experience, the teaching staff are excellent. My son left CAN last year with 5 plus grades at A-C including Maths, English and Science, and had an advanced apprenticeship within a month. And my daughter took 4 GCSE's this year, in year 10 and she got excellent passes in all of them. Try not to judge all schools just by the standards you see in black and white.

  • And well done to Jim Nixon, John Wilson and Andrew John for having the courtesy to thank their respective school governors for all the unpaid work they do throughout the school year ... a pity more Headteachers don't recognise this.

  • I wonder if Lynn Grove High will refuse to play the results game again? Come on EDP publish the refusers?
