Pupils and staff at Westlands School are celebrating the fantastic results of our pupils in 2017.
60% of pupils achieved a standard pass (grade 4), or higher, in both English and mathematics and 32% achieved a solid pass (grade 5), or higher, in both.
Our Maths results were outstanding with 139 out of 270 students (52% of our cohort) getting a 5 or above and 74% getting 4 or above. Science results were also good with 58% obtaining 2 C grades or higher and Geography results improved more than any other subject, with 86 pupils (59%) obtaining a C grade or above. Along with some solid results in English, where 66% of our cohort achieved a 4 or above in either English Literature or Language.
Progress 8 and Attainment 8 are the government’s new performance measures. In 2017 the school achieved a Progress 8 figure of +0.1 and the attainment 8 figure for 2017 was 42.59, which both compare favourably to other local schools and other schools with similar contexts.
7% of pupils achieved the English Baccalaureate measure, achieving a standard pass or higher in English, mathematics, geography or history and French or Spanish.
This summer saw the first set of Post 16 outcomes for Swale Sixth Form, a joint provision for students in Sittingbourne, with courses delivered at Westlands School, Sittingbourne Community College and Swale Skills Centre.
The inaugural results have proved a triumph, and students are being congratulated on some outstanding outcomes. Over 170 students have completed Level 3 courses this year across the schools, totalling more than 420 examination entries. Between them they have achieved over 280 A*-B grades, and 363 A*-C grades, in 41 different courses, with the overall A*-E pass rate being 99%.
