2022 Examination Results
Our Year 11 students attained strong examination results, keeping outcomes in line with the last time formal examinations were taken in 2019. Our progress (P8: + 0.24 and A8: 48.7) places us above the national average, in terms of progress, across schools in England. Notably, out of 172 students sitting GCSE examinations, 75% of students attained a standard pass (grade 4+) in both English and Maths, and 54% of students attained a strong pass (grade 5+) in both English and Maths. As a school we pride ourselves on nurturing and challenging every child to achieve their personal best. This is why progress really matters to us.
Many students have also done exceptionally well, and we are very proud of each one of them for their individual success. Students who have secured notable outcomes include:
- Darren Haddad: 10 Level 9s
- Jannatjot Sandhu: 7 Level 9s, 2 Level 8s and 1 Distinction
- Jenna Massoud: 8 Level 9s and 1 Level 7
- Dinel Gamage: 6 Level 9s, 1 D* and 2 Level 7s
- Lucas Sentonaris: 5 Level 9s, 3 Level 8s and 1 Level 7
- Daniel Sawyer: 6 Level 9s, 2 Level 8s and 1 Level 6
- Rahul Mehta: 4 Level 9s, 4 Level 8s and 1 Pass
- Grace Locke: 4 Level 9s, 4 Level 8s and 1 Level 7
Headteacher Mrs. Michelle Cooper said that “This results day has been special for students, parents and staff alike. Seeing students open their GCSE results based on formal examinations has been amazing. The smile on faces reflects the preparation and work that has gone into them. Well done to all our students, we are very proud. Thank you for the tireless work of staff under challenging circumstances and to families for supporting their child in this journey. It is the Westgate team spirit that is reflected in these results. Grades do not define us, but our ‘attitude’ does make all the difference. We are proud of their attitudes and the way they have gone about their business.”
Students were unable to sit GCSE's in 2020 and so 2022 exams were the first external assessments taken. We are incredibly proud of their tremendous achievements. Our Sixth Form students showed incredible grit and determination to secure grades that are truly reflective of their commitment and effort.
Out of 77 Year 13 students, 9% of students attained A*-A, 30% of students achieved A*-B and 96% of our students’ results were A*-E.
Some notable student successes included:
- Tegan Hill (A*, A, D*) is studying Criminology at The University of Bristol
- Pema Tsering (A, A, A) is studying Biochemistry at King’s College London
- Oliwia Konecka (A, A, B) is studying Zoology at Royal Holloway University
- Callum Nicoll (A, B, B) is deferring his university placement at The University of Winchester until 2023
- Leia Humphries (A (EPQ), B, B, B) is studying Primary Education at the University of Gloucestershire
- Shardonai McHugh (B, B, D*) has secured an apprenticeship with a real estate agency
We are very proud of all our students have successfully secured university places, apprenticeships or employment.
The success of our students is underpinned by the dedication and support of the staff at The Westgate School who continue to go above and beyond to ensure that students achieve and surpass their potential. We wish all our current Sixth Form students the very best for the future.
