2020 Examination Results
KS4 - GCSE
The Westgate School have provisionally attained some of our strongest examination results at GCSE and have improved on the 2019 summer examination series in all indicative areas.
Notably, 70% of students attained a standard pass (Level 4+) in both English and Maths and our Progress 8 (+0.52) and Attainment 8 (47.89) score is well-above average. This provisionally places our school in the top 14% of schools in England.
These outcomes reflect the significant amount of work invested by all and students and staff in very challenging circumstances and we strongly believe that these outcomes are fair and reflect the effort and dedicated from both staff and students over several years.
We are also delighted that our whole-school focus on raising the outcomes of Pupil Premium students (an improvement of +0.39) and boys (an improvement of +0.33) has paid dividends owing to the significant improvement from the 2019 summer examination series.
Headteacher Mrs. Michelle Cooper said that “our GCSE results reflect the significant amount of work invested by all of our students in very challenging circumstances and we strongly believe that these outcomes are fair and reflect the effort and dedicated from both staff and students over several years. The support of parents and governors in these unprecedented circumstances has also been crucial to our success that we share with all our school community. Despite these strange times, hearing positive stories about the growth and resilience in our students is truly heart-warming. We are very proud of our students and sincerely wish each of them the very best in whatever future pathway they wish to pursue.”

KS5 - A Level
The provisional Key Stage 5 results show an improvement upon the 2019 summer examination series and reflects the hard work that staff throughout the school have invested in the Sixth Form as per our whole-school priority.
In Year 13, students have met and excelled our high expectations with 33.33% of our A-Level students achieving A*-B, 65.1% of our A-Level students securing A*C and 100% attaining A*-E. Similarly, our BTEC students achieved a 100% pass rate with 84.0% achieving D*-Merit.
As a school, we continue to be incredibly proud of our students. Throughout the uncertainty of the 2020 summer examination series, Sixth Form students at The Westgate School have demonstrated incredible resilience and resolve to secure excellent grades which are truly reflective of their commitment and effort over the past two years.
The provisional Key Stage 5 results are also testament to the hard work and dedication of staff who have endeavoured to ensure that most Year 13 students have secured their first choice of university/post-19 pathway.

Mrs. Cooper, Headteacher, comments that “the success of our students is underpinned by the dedication and support of the staff and governors at The Westgate School who continue to go above and beyond to ensure that students achieve and surpass their potential. The support afforded from parents has been critical, as we collectively navigate these unchartered territories together, and we are truly grateful for their unwavering loyalty. We wish all our current Sixth Form students the very best for the future in whatever path they decide to pursue.”
