Exam Results

Barking Abbey is delighted to announce our examinations results for 2013.

Our results rose, despite a drop in results nationally at both A level and GCSE.

For the sixth form, the pass rate for Grades A*-E went up to 99.4%; for Grades A*-C it rose to 74.1% and for Grades A*-A it was 16.4%. The Average Points Score per entry rose again to 221.6 (12% above the national average).

At GCSE, 5 or more A*-C Grades including English and Maths went up to 65.4% while the overall 5 or more Grades at A*-C increased to 88.4% (well above the national average). 52 students gained at least 5 A* and A grades.

Congratulations to all the students and staff who worked so hard to ensure that these results were some of the best in the school’s history.
