100% pass rate in GCSE examinations!


All of our pupils passed every exam: 100% success.

As a double celebration, significant numbers of pupils took GCSE exams up to two years early and succeeded.


20% of our year 11s achieved all A*/A in all their exams.


100% success rate  A* - C in 5 subjects


Students in year 10 sat maths and science GCSE exam celebrated success in both subjects passing one year ahead with an overwhelming A* - Cs. Not to be outdone, 3 students in year 9 gained C or above at GCSE maths two years ahead of the national standards! That means, whilst remaining a non-selective school, our pupils are taking exams a year and in some cases 2 years ahead of their age group and being successful. It’s what we do well at Manor House.

Furthermore, 8 pupils in year 8 successfully sat their AQA free standing maths qualifications. This year the published league tables take the first exam entry, hence the figure that appears in newspapers is lower than the 80% who actually achieved 5 A* - C including English and maths.  Manor House believes the early entry gives pupils real exam experience so they can retake to optimise their potential. It is their highest exam result the children take forwards with them, not the result that appears in the tables in the media.

The results are testament to how hard our pupils worked and the diligence they showed in every subject, supported by a hardworking, passionate and skilled teaching staff. 

We set the standards others strive to follow.
