GCSE Results Westside School 2023

It has been another great year for KS4 outcomes for the vast majority of students in the school. Westside works hard to ensure that our students are given the opportunity to get back on track in education and achieve highly in a variety of GCSE and vocational qualifications. Whilst we understand that not all achievements are academic, we recognise that having good exam results is often what is required to re-engage young people in education, which is the cornerstone of our mission. Offering a broad and balanced curriculum is important to ensure that Westside students are not disadvantaged by attending an Alternative Provision. Often AP is seen as a poor relation to mainstream education and that opportunities for students are limited. Westside consistently demonstrates that our students can, and do achieve qualifications like their peers in other settings. Some of the highlights this year include:

100% of vocational students achieving a pass in ICT, Enterprise, Hair and Beauty, Sports Science at both L1 and L2

67% GCSE grade 4 and above GCSE Combined Science

50% GCSE grade 5 and above in Art

40% GCSE grade 4 and above in English Literature

One student achieving 9 GCSE passes at grades 6-8

Our first grade 8 achieved in French; our first grade 6 in computing.

20% of all students achieving five good GCSE passes including Maths and English

It is truly humbling to see that the students have been rewarded for their hard-work, resilience and ambition. I wish our students continued success and hope that they will stay in touch with us beyond their time in the school. Our transition and alumnae support for leavers of Westside is offered for as long as it is required and is there to support students not just with their first next steps, but throughout the challenges of early adulthood.

Well done to the class of 2023 on their amazing achievements.
