Exam Results

Our Achievements

At The Latimer Arts College we believe in encouraging students to aspire for the highest possible academic achievement.  We believe in the value of examinations as the ‘passport’ for accessing higher education or training and a wider choice of careers and we are immensely proud that we are delivering on our promise to deliver success to our students year after year.

Success at The Latimer Arts College is more than just about what the performance tables show. In September 2013, there were changes to how a school’s performance would be measured. One of these changes was around which grade would be included on the performance tables for students who had entered an examination in a subject more than once. The government decided that the grade that a student achieved the first time that they entered for an examination would be the one that would count in a school’s performance table.

At The Latimer Arts College, we took the decision not to change our entry policy at this time, regardless of performance tables, as it had been proven to bring success to our students and it would have an impact on students who had already started examination courses.  Following more recent changes to the content and structure of GCSEs we have reviewed this policy once again and our Year 11 (August 2016) are the final cohort of students who will have been entered for an examination more than once. 

Therefore, the performance tables for this cohort will not show the grades that students actually achieved at the College by the end of Year 11. 

At the end of their Key Stage 4 studies, in 2016 students achieved:

 More than just a number!

We also pride ourselves in supporting our students to become the best that they can be in all aspects of their life; and as a College, we want to be the best that we can be in delivering this.  Here are just some of the things that we are the best at:

  • At the end of Year 11 every single one of our students secures a place in education, employment or training;
  • Our enrichment programme, and in particular our Performing Arts provision, is outstanding;
  • We enter more sporting competitions and leagues that any other school in the local area;
  • We have received Silver Accreditation for our Anti- Bullying work;
  • Last year we raised over £5,000 for charity;
  • We are one of the best schools in the country for awarding VIVO reward points to our students.

We invite you to browse our website to see more of our many, many successes.
