Outstanding GCSE Results

Having completed our analysis of the performance of our class of 2013 in their final examinations in the summer, we are pleased once again to report an excellent set of results. This year has been a particularly challenging one for all schools given the changes to the structure of many examination courses that have been introduced at extremely short notice. However, I am pleased that students and staff have managed the changes well, and we did not experience the sharp decline in standards at Sedgefield Community College that have been witnessed at some schools. Since 2009, year 11 students have each year broken all previous college records for achievement, with 81% achieving five or more A*-C grades (including English and Maths) last year. In spite of not quite achieving the accolade of Sedgefield’s highest ever achieving year group, the class of 2013 have nevertheless, still produced results which are amongst the very best in the entire North East region with 78% gaining five or more A*-C grades (including English and Maths). On behalf of the staff, governors and myself, I would again like to congratulate our class of 2013, and wish them happiness and every success in their life after Sedgefield Community College.


Sedgefield Community College - one of the 56 top performing secondary schools in England

As the college once again celebrated outstanding student performance, this time in the 2013 GCSE examinations, we were pleased to receive a recent letter (see below) from the Department for Education recognising the performance of the college. We hope that this recognition provides parents with further confidence that their children are attending one of the country’s highest performing schools. Dear Mr Davies It gives me great pleasure to congratulate you on your excellent performance in the new similar schools measure in the 2012 School Performance Tables. You are one of the 56 top performing secondary schools in England on this measure. These tables compare schools with those with near identical intakes, as judged by their key stage 2 results. Your school stood out in two ways. First, you were ranked number one in your table. Second, over 10 per cent more of your pupils achieved five good GCSEs including English and Maths than is typical of a school with your intake. This is a fantastic achievement that you should be very proud of. I congratulate your staff, governors and pupils for their hard work and thank you for your leadership… Yours sincerely David Laws MP
