GCSE Results 2022

We are absolutely delighted to report our exceptional 2022 GCSE results, the first set of results since 2019 for which students took a full complement of examinations. Improvements have been made this year against the last set of formal examinations and have continued the impressive results gained over the last few years.

We are tremendously proud of all our students’ excellent results. They have worked hard through the most difficult of times. Despite this, the numbers of students gaining passes and strong passes has continued to rise. The number of grades 7 to 9 has also increased and students have achieved the necessary levels for the next stage in their education. We are delighted to be able to congratulate them in person today. We also want to thank parents and staff who have supported them throughout their exam years.

The percentage of students achieving a Grade 4 in English and Maths is to 71% and those achieving a Grade 5 in English and Maths is a tremendous 52%
In English, 79% of students achieved the Grade 4 and above, with 67% achieving the Grade 5 or above. In Maths, 76% gained a Grade 4 or above, and 55% gained a Grade 5 or above. Well done to all the students and teaching staff for their hard work and dedication in making this possible.

Due to the changing nature of qualifications, no school is able to publish an accurate and official progress 8 figure until the Department for Education releases this later in the Autumn term. However, we have seen an excellent initial figure that has been calculated on the 2019 data. This gives us a positive score again showing that students who study at Oxford Spires Academy make more progress than other students do from similar starting points nationally.

These results are a testament of the impact that Oxford Spires Academy has on the outcomes and life chances of its students.

In addition there have been some exceptional individual student outcomes. We are absolutely delighted that hard work, dedication and fantastic teaching has enabled our students to achieve the very best grades across the board. The students below have achieved a fantastic array of top grades across their GCSE and BTec subjects.

• Nora Jepson: 10x Grade 9s and 3x Grade 8s
• Herbie Austin-Baker: 8x Grade 9s, 3x Grade 8s and a Grade 7
• Freya Hull: 7x Grade 9s, 4x Grade 8s & 1x Grade 7
• George Schwebel: 6x Grade 9s, 3 Grade 8s & 2 Grade 7s

• Charlotte Olley: 6 Grade 9s, 4x Grade 8s & 2 Grade 7s
• Ayesha Chorley: 5 Grade 9s, 6x Grade 8s & 1x Grade 7

Our GCSE results along with our A Level results clearly show the sustained progress that Oxford Spires Academy continues to make, despite the challenges over the last three academic years. We would like to congratulate all our students on their well-deserved success and thank the teaching staff, the governors and of course the parents, who have guided and supported them. I am incredibly proud to be the incoming Principal of such a progressive, positive and successful school.
