NUSA Key Stage 4 Exam Results 2016
We are delighted with the results secured by our students this year. Everyone’s commitment and hard work has paid dividends, meaning more life choices and better life chances for our students than ever before.
I would like to applaud our students for their sheer determination and the incredible effort that they have put in to achieve these grades. We wish them the best of luck with their chosen path and their lives beyond NUSA.
As a school that has recently come out of special measures, these results represent another significant step in the right direction, and an indication of the positive changes that have already been made at NUSA.

notes to exam results data 2016
In 2016, Attainment 8 measures the achievement of a pupil across 8 qualifications including Mathematics and English (both double weighted), 3 qualifications that count in the English Baccalaureate (EBacc) measure and 3 further qualifications. 4.15 represents an average pupil grade between a D(4) and a C(5)
A Progress 8 score is calculated for each pupil by comparing their achievement –their Attainment 8 score – with the average Attainment 8 score of all pupils nationally who had a similar starting point, calculated using assessment results from the end of primary school. Progress 8 gives an indication of whether, as a group, pupils in this school made above or below average progress compared to similar pupils in other schools. Progress 8 results above are a prediction based on previous years. They therefore need to be treated with some caution. The official 2016 National averages are expected to be released by the start of next year.
To achieve the EBACC, pupils need to have gained an A*-C in English, Maths, History or Geography, two sciences and a modern foreign language.
