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.

GCSE Results 2020

Schools are judged on a Progress 8 measure, which reflects how much progress students make during their time at a secondary school. 

In 2020 examinations were replaced by Centre Assessed Grades.  The results achieved by our students were in line with our previous set of results, meaning that students would have achieved above national progress for these subjects.

Because of the difficulties with examinations in 2020 we have detailed below our most recent examination results.
