GCSE Results

Hockerill is very pleased with the excellent GCSE results that were published in the summer of 2022. More than half of our entries were graded 9-7, with almost a third graded 8 or 9.  In addition, 93.9% of entries were a pass at grades 9-4, with 86.6% being a ‘strong’ pass graded 5 or higher.  Within this, 91.6% of students achieved at least five GCSEs graded 4 and upwards, including English and Maths. Against national trends of a decline in languages and uptake of the English Baccalaureate (EBacc), 84.1% of students achieved the full suite of the EBacc with grades 9-4 in each area and 67.3% securing strong passes in every area.  Almost all GCSE students at Hockerill study a GCSE curriculum of two languages and a humanity subjects.

IBDP Results

 

Hockerill’s average points score in the International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme for 2022 was 36, compared to a global average of 31.98.  Of our 123 students, 29.3% scored 40 points or more, the equivalent to 4 A*s at A Level, with 63.4% score 35 points or more, the equivalent to 2 A*s and an A at A Level.  Two students scored the prestigious maximum score of 45 points, with only 1% of the world cohort achieving this feat.  Students study 3 Higher Level subjects and 3 Standard Level subjects, each graded 1-7, as well as the core components of Theory of Knowledge (TOK) and the Extended Essay, worth a combined total of three points.  Of the Higher Level entries, usually those which determine university destinations, 29.9% were graded 7 (A* at A Level); 62.8% were graded 6-7 (A*/A at A Level); and 85.98% were graded 5-7.  Hockerill students have almost all progressed to a range of university and apprenticeship providers, with the overwhelming majority going to their first choice destination.  Amongst many excellent providers, six have begun courses at Oxford or Cambridge.

In individual qualifications (subjects at Higher or Standard Level), Hockerill scored above the global average in 31 out of 36 areas. In six of these areas, Hockerill’s was a grade or more higher than the global average.

These results are a fantastic achievement for the students and a sum of excellent work of all staff to ensure that our exam cohorts were knowledgeable and ready for their exams, despite studying their courses with a Covid lockdown within it. 

Given the uneven impact of the pandemic on school and college performance data, the government has said you should not make direct comparisons between the performance data for one school or college and another, or to data from previous years.

Destinations

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.

Ofsted

Our last Ofsted inspection recognised our considerable achievements in both GCSEs and the IB programme grading the school as Outstanding in every category.

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.
