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

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