2019 (pre-Covid) GCSE Exam Results

Schools are required to continue to display 2018 to 2019 performance measures until new performance measures are published.  Given that 2019 to 2020 results were based on centre assessed grades, the Government has not published the performance measures.  Below are the figures that must be displayed, but for more information please view the Government's Performance Data here. https://www.compare-school-performance.service.gov.uk/school/136758/west-hatch-high-school/secondary

Progress 8 score    -0.06  (The local authority (Essex) average score for state-funded schools is -0.13)

This score shows how much progress pupils at this school made between the end of Key Stage 2 and the end of Key Stage 4, compared to pupils across England who got similar results at the end of Key Stage 2. This is based on results in up to 8 qualifications, which include English, Maths, 3 English Baccalaureate qualifications including Sciences, Computer Science, History, Geography and Languages, and 3 other additional approved qualifications.

% of students achieving 5 or above in both English and Maths     33%

This tells you the percentage of pupils who achieved grade 5 or above in the 2017 reformed English and Maths GCSEs.

Attainment 8 score       44.3

Schools get a score based on how well pupils have performed in up to 8 qualifications, which include English, Maths, 3 English Baccalaureate qualifications including Sciences, Computer Science, History, Geography and Languages, and 3 other additional approved qualifications.

English Baccalaureate (EBacc) average point score (APS)        3.66

The EBacc APS calculates a pupil's average point scores across the 5 pillars of the English Baccalaureate, allocating points to a pupil's best grades and dividing by 6 (the Science grades count in 2 pillars, meaning a total of 6 pillars) to create an average point score per pupil.

% of students entered into the EBacc         40%

A pupil is considered to have entered for the English Baccalaureate if they entered for qualifications in English, Maths, Sciences, a Language and either History or Geography. The English Baccalaureate (EBacc) is not a test or qualification; it is a measure used to provide information about a particular range of qualifications.

Students at West Hatch High School, Chigwell, have again performed exceptionally well at GCSE, with record results for the school overall.

"Their last ‘normal’ school year was Year 8 and yet they have achieved success well beyond what we could have imagined. 

"I am so incredibly proud of our students and so happy I will get to see so many of them flourish further over the next two years in the Sixth Form. 

"I’d like to wish all of our students huge congratulations and personally thank our staff for their hard work and dedication.”

Mr Leonard added: "With almost 60 per cent of our students achieving a Grade 5 or above in English and Maths, and our top performers enrolling into the Sixth Form, as well as many other exceptional students from the school and from other schools, West Hatch will continue to thrive. 

"Our students clearly have a huge amount of resilience having overcome the difficulties of the last few years so spectacularly, as well as
an outstanding work ethic. This bodes very well for both them and the school in the future. 

"I hope all of our families are now able to relax and celebrate their achievements. I am very proud of them all.”

He added: "In our Sixth Form, not only will the students commence their A-Levels and Vocational Courses but they will also have the opportunity to undertake work placements, shadowing, internships, the Extended Project Qualification and the Duke of Edinburgh Awards Scheme among many other opportunities beyond the curriculum.

"Our Sixth Form supports our students leaving us with the confidence, skills and excellent results enabling them to compete with the best in the future.

"The school provides a calm and orderly learning environment and pupils have very positive attitudes towards their learning."
