Results and Performance 2017

Shevington High School Class of 2017 achieved excellent exam results. There were some exceptional individual performances.
Results in Maths and English have been above the National Average for the third year in a row.
Whilst the importance of results in English and Maths cannot be overstated, it is important to us that students develop and achieve on a broad range of areas across the curriculum. It is particularly pleasing to see high standards being achieved in creative and technological, as well as academic, subjects. For example;

Subject Name% A* to C

French70.73%
Geography66.67%
ICT88.33%

The 2017 results are another indication of the growing success of Shevington High School.
This success is due to the talent and hard work of our students and staff, supported by parents and families. Congratulations and good luck to all of our students as they embark on the next stage of their lives.

KS4 / KS5 Destination Measures

Destination measures provide information on the destinations of students who left Shevington High School at the end of KS4. This measure is based on the young person’s activity in the year after they have left Shevington High School (i.e. college/training provider enrolment)
The KS4 destination measures show the percentage of students continuing their education in a post-16 college or training provider; the percentage who went into employment or training, including through an apprenticeship; and those who were not in education, employment or training (NEET).
The DfE publications of the measures are based on sustained participation in all of the first two terms of the year after the young person left KS4. This information can be found on the DfE website.
95% of our students stayed in education or entered employment which is higher than the national average.
