An amazing 69% of the cohort achieved the benchmark of a Grade 4 or above in both English and Mathematics, surpassing last year’s record of 64%. Fantastic results were secured in English (84% 4+), Maths (75% 4+), Science (73% 4+).

Outcomes in Drama, Art and MFL were also very strong, and we are confident that progress released in the Autumn will affirm the fantastic work our students and staff have done.

A LEVEL

Building on the fantastic success of last summer's results, students at Cardinal Pole Catholic School celebrated amazing A level results. Already amongst the top 1% of schools for progress last summer according to  national A Level Progress measures (ALPs), the percentage of A*, A and B grades still increased this year, with 21% of grades at A*-A, an exceptional  61% at A*-B and 85% at A*-C.

Our most recent inspection in October 2016 from the Diocese of Westminster graded the school as outstanding in every category. The report commented that our ‘distinctive inclusive ethos of this school is tangible in every area of school life from classroom to corridors and in relationships between students and staff’ and described progress as outstanding.  Importantly, it described the school as a ‘safe place that allows all to flourish’ and a place where ‘Students make outstanding progress’. The 2017 OFSTED praised the work of the school.

The English department has strong and supportive leadership. It is well resourced and is a popular post 16 choice.
