Best Ever GCSE Outcomes for Parrs Wood

We are extremely pleased to report record-breaking GCSE outcomes for our 2015/16 year 11 cohort. Following consistently good outcomes in previous years, 72% of our year 11s achieved at least 5 A*-C including English and Maths which is exceptional considering the ongoing changes to syllabuses, assessments and grade thresholds.

Schools locally and nationally are once more coming to terms with unannounced increased grade thresholds, particularly in mathematics, and it is often the most vulnerable students who are most adversely affected by these changes which makes year on year improvements in outcomes even more challenging for schools to achieve.

At Parrs Wood, we understand that a successful education is very much built upon a shared responsibility, ownership and accountability and I would like to take this opportunity to thank our students, staff, parents and governors who have worked collaboratively to ensure that we set high standards and expectations for our students to flourish academically and socially.

We wish our students health, happiness and every success on their onward learning pathway.

A-level Results 2016


Another set of fantastic A-level outcomes for Parrs Wood Sixth Form students!

We are again extremely proud of the A-level performance of Parrs Wood students. Our truly diverse cohort has again produced excellent outcomes, with significant increases at all grade thresholds, ensuring that our students have achieved what they need to access a wide variety of university courses and apprenticeships at prestigious institutions.
Considering we have a traditionally academic curriculum at Parrs Wood, to achieve almost 28% of grades at A*/A and 51% at A*/B is a fantastic achievement.
The success of our students has been the result of their commitment to their studies, excellent teaching, the opportunity to develop their leadership and outstanding future pathways guidance.
We wish all of them health, happiness and every success on their onward learning journey. – Andrew Shakos.
