Outstanding results

We are in the top 1% of sixth forms nationally!

Silverdale Sixth Form is one of the most successful in the city, indeed in the entire country.

We pride ourselves on the exceptionally high levels of attainment and progress achieved by our students.
The close academic and pastoral relationship between students and staff results in sixth formers fulfilling
their potential and beyond.

The level 3 assessment of progress published by the Department for Education puts us in the top 5% for
progress nationally.

External results were not published in 2020 or 2021. Students received Centre Assessed Grades (CAGs) or Teacher Assessed Grades (TAGs) because of the Covid-19 pandemic. These were in line with previous years' outstanding results.

2022 results

  • 90% of all grades were A*-C
  • 75% of all grades are A*-B
  • 51% of all grades were A*-A
  • 24% of all grades were A*
  • Our average grade was A
