Every year students at The Minster School achieve impressive examination outcomes in a wide range of subjects. Our excellent results have supported students to make the transition very successfully to college, University, apprenticeship and employment as they leave the school.  

In 2020 grades were awarded to students through a process of centre assessed grades. More can be found about this process here:

Our students dealt with these challenging circumstances fantastically, particularly given the uncertainty and sudden changes which affected their final outcomes. We are so proud of our students and the grades they achieved every year and this year is no exception. These grades were earnt through hard work during their time in school and are an excellent set of outcomes.

Some key successes at GCSE :

  • 84% of students achieved a grade 4 or better (pass) in both English and maths. 59% archived a grade 5 or better (good pass) in both English and maths.
  • The average grade achieved (also known as the Attainment 8 average grade) was 5.8, considerably above the level of a good pass.
