Context of our results and Destinations

Wexham is a non-selective school in a fully selective local authority. This means the vast majority of more able children sit the 11+ and join one of four grammar schools in the town. Whilst across England there are some 163 grammar schools there are more than 3000 comprehensive schools educating 90%+ of all students, most of which do not reside in fully selective areas unlike Wexham.

Wexham School has the highest number of what the government terms 'disadvantaged' students in Slough (well above the national average) and we have high numbers of students whose first language is not English, many are at the early stages of learning. Some of our students will never feature on Progress 8 data as they were not entered by their primary school for SATs or were not in the country to sit them and therefore no matter how well they perform in their GCSE examinations their performance does not count as part of the school's overall P8 score, for our current Year 11 cohort this equates to 40% of our students. 

Every year we have children achieving the highest grades at Wexham. Every year students from Wexham move on into employment, further training or to universities where they study a broad range of qualifications, including medicine and law. We are exceptionally proud of all our students’ achievements; whatever their starting point and whatever their background. We are inclusive and proud to be so. 

GCSE EXAMINATION RESULTS 2020
