Exam Results

2018-19 Success:

At Trafalgar School we are extremely proud of our students and the successes that they had last year with their exam results—there were smiles all around as our hard working young people opened the gold envelopes containing their grades. There were of course many individual stand out performances that were noteworthy, two of which coming from our very own Head Boy and Deputy Head Boy, who even had their pictures taken for the local newspaper. As our last all boys cohort, their results put us as the third highest performing school in the city which is testament to the rapid journey of improvement we have been on over the last three years.

English, Maths and Science:

Despite a set of incredibly challenging 9-1 GCSEs, provisional progress figures for the school have increased and students have performed well in English, Maths and Science. English has continued to increase attainment each year, with students in the national top 20% for Grade 5-9 progress. In Maths student achievement has remained steady and in Science progress was at an all time high with over 72% of the cohort meeting or exceeding their target grade!

Other Subjects:

At Trafalgar School we pride ourselves in offering a wide and varied curriculum for our students. We have celebrated success stories in all subjects taught last year,  with some top progress results shown below:
