Exam and Assessment

Our aspiration at Rotherham Aspire is that our students are nurtured and prepared for the future in both the world of work and society.

Students arrive at Aspire with very different starting points and an academic pathway is not always appropriate to meet their individual needs. We do however, believe that all our students should leave us with tangible qualifications and have a level of functioning in numeracy and literacy to help them take their place in society as responsible and independent citizens.

The number of students in 2017 leaving Aspire with qualifications in both English and mathematics at GCSE was 63%. In 2016 this figure was 44%.

The number of students leaving with a mathematics GCSE grade has risen over the last three years from 50% in 2015 to 52% in 2016 and 64% in 2017.  In 2017 3 students achieved a grade 4 in mathematics.

The percentage of students achieving grades 1 to 9 in English has also risen significantly in 2017 at 67% compared to 47% 2015 and 46% 2016.

No students at Aspire followed a Key Stage 2 SATs pathway in 2017.
