Results, Destinations and Ofsted


Hockerill Anglo-European College has impressive academic credentials and has been consistently ranked as one of the leading schools in the UK.  The Sunday Times Schools Guide 2021 highlighted Hockerill as one of the top state secondary schools.

In 2018-19 90% of students achieved 5 GCSEs at 9-4 (A*-C) including English and Maths. In 2019 63% of IB Diploma grades were achieved at the equivalent of A*/A at A Level. However, our success should not just be measured against UK students. 20% of our 2019 IB diploma students gained 40 points or over, an accomplishment for less than ten percent of IB students globally. Hockerill consistently outperforms other local, national and international schools, as can be seen in the IB and GCSE results sections and in the Average Point Score table below.

Progress 8 is a measure of the progress children make between the end of primary school and the end of secondary school. It’s designed to encourage good quality teaching across a broad curriculum. Progress 8 and Attainment 8 are based on pupils’ performance in eight qualifications. These are English and maths, up to three subjects from the Ebacc list, and students’ three highest scores from a range of other qualifications, including GCSEs and approved non-GCSEs. English and maths are given double weighting to reflect their importance. The raw point score from these eight qualifications is average to give the school's Attainment 8 score.

The English Baccalaureate, or EBacc, is a measure of how many pupils achieve a good GCSE pass in six core academic subjects: English, maths, history or geography, combined science (which counts as two passes) and a language. In addition, students must take both English language and literature, although they only need a grade A*-C (old GCSEs) or 5+ (new GCSEs) in one of them.

IBDP Results

Hockerill students celebrated another strong set of results in the International Baccalaureate Diploma programme in 2021. The 123 Hockerill students gaining the IB Diploma achieved an overall points average of 37.8 against an International average of 33.

Using the Department for Education performance point scores tariff system enables us to compare IB results with A Levels and this shows Hockerill students achieved a 70% equivalent pass rate at A*/A.  This compares the two highest grades achievable at IB Diploma Higher level (7 and 6) with A* and A at A level.

Most of our students go on to excellent universities, both in the UK and internationally, either straight from Year 13 or some after taking a gap year.

Hockerill students study a wide range of disciplines, this year including Medicine, Mathematics, PPE, Military History, Biological Sciences, Molecular Bioengineering, Social Anthropology, Music, International Business Management, Psychology, Law, Economics, French, Spanish and Arabic. We know that the IB Diploma prepares young people well for next steps, whether that be at university, taking an apprenticeship or going straight into the world of work, and we are incredibly proud of our graduating cohort.

Boarding Reports

For the  2012 Welfare Inspection Report, please CLICK HERE.

The inspection of boarding at the College took place 12th to 14th March 2019 under the Social Care Common Inspection Framework. The report can be accessed by CLICKING HERE.

The Inspectors judged the College to be fully compliant with the National Minimum Standards.  This is testament to the work of the College boarding staff in looking after the boarders and the boarding houses.  In the main report, the College received a rating of ‘good’ in all three categories.  The Inspectors were extremely positive about many areas of the College’s provision, citing the staff as ‘exceptional role models for boarders’ and the boarders as ‘ambitious and well-rounded individuals’.  The praise for many areas of boarding life was significant, with the work of the College caterers, the Health Centre, and   the variety of activities available being singled out for praise.  The Report was very positive about the work of the Governing Body and spoke highly of the rigorous recruitment process for staff followed by the College.  It is also important to note the commendations in the Report of the College’s Child Protection procedures.


The College is disappointed not to have maintained the ‘outstanding’ rating for boarding which it received in 2016.  However, as the Report identifies, the College has both the desire and the capacity to address the shortfalls and to ensure that the standard of boarding matches the College’s expectations in all areas.  The Report has addressed three areas which relate to record keeping and internal communication procedures.  These are clearly a priority for the College and changes have already been put in place to address these and to bring these areas up to the standard of other areas of the boarding provision which were praised in the Report.  It is important that these recommendations are addressed quickly and effectively, and the College Senior Leadership Team and Governors will be focusing on addressing these areas during the coming term.
