2016 GCSE results

Prince William School students achieved another set of excellent exams results seeing a rise in attainment for a third year in a row.  The results put us in the top 20 schools in Northamptonshire.

At PWS 82% of students achieved an A*-C in English and 70% an A*-C in Maths, with 68% of our students achieving an A*-C in both subjects, this is now the new national measure and our students are achieving above the national average. This places us joint 11th out of all schools in Northamptonshire.

The Government are also introducing new measures to assess how much progress all students make, a score known as Progress 8.  A score of 0 would mean students had come in at Key stage 2 and made the average progress expected. 

This means that students at Prince William are obtaining results at the national average.  This progress score puts us in the top 15 schools in Northamptonshire for progress.
