We continue to be one of the top performing schools in Barnsley, now second only to the borough’s Grammar school for attainment and students at Carlton make more progress than at any other Barnsley school and well above the national average.
68% of students achieved at least a grade 4 (the equivalent to a grade C) in both English and Maths, a rise of 5% from last year and more than doubling the figure from when Outwood Grange Academies Trust began working with the school in 2014. Half of our students achieved at least a grade 5 in both English and Maths.
English 4+ = 83%
English 5+ = 73%
Maths 4+ = 71%
Maths 5+ = 52%
2+ Sciences A*-C = 66%
Results across the board were superb and many of our students achieved a whole string of top grades, with stunning performances from Emilie Beattie, Brandon Green, Anya Haigh, Nicole Powell, Katy Winrow, Alex Dryden and Jordan Swann.
“This year group were quite incredible and I have never known a group of young people who worked so hard and wanted to be successful so much. The demands placed upon them were immense but they rose to every challenge and as things got more difficult, they just worked even harder. These results are testament to their dedication and desire, to the support provided by their families and to staff who always put students first. I am incredibly proud of the achievements of each and every one of our students and when we talk about ‘transforming lives’, I know that is what we have done for so many of them and these results, and the fact that they have developed into such well-rounded people, will mean that they will be successful in whatever they choose to do in the future”.
