Year 11

The year 11 GCSE results were favourable against other UTCs. It is important to remember the Department of Education guidelines on an Academy such as Global.

'Some schools start educating pupils partway through the 5-year period covered by Progress 8, which should be taken into account when comparing their results with schools that start at KS3. Progress 8 is not the most appropriate performance measure for UTCs, studio schools and some FE colleges. These establishments typically start educating pupils at age 14, with a focus on preparing pupils for their future careers by providing an integrated academic and professional education. Other headline measures, particularly pupil destinations, are more important for these establishments'
