At Villiers High School, we have an excellent record of outstanding examination outcomes at GCSE and A Level. Results have improved year on year for the past three years and under the DfE tables are categorized as ‘well above the national average’, placing us in the top 15% of schools nationally. Current cohort assessments indicate that this upward trend will continue.

Progress Score Projection + 1.03 (predicted to be top 1%) – pupils on average attained over a grade above their peers nationally.
Attainment Score Projection 4.9 (pupils predicted to achieve a strong C on average across all subjects).
English and Maths Projection is likely to be in the top 1% nationally, showing three consecutive years of excellent progress. Half of all pupils got a 5 in both English and maths.
Our summer 2018 exam results were excellent and it is the third consecutive year where the results place the school in the top 15%. The government has reported our results at KS4 are ‘well above average’ and dark green – this is the highest grading. We are especially proud that of 55 similar schools, we are ranked second for progress.
