College performance

Fullhurst Community College 2020 exam results

GCSE results for 2020 were awarded as centre assessment grades (CAGs). These are based on student performance and progress, which were then standardised by staff within the school, before being sent to examination boards for moderation. Progress 8 Attainment and Progress scores aren't displayed due to exams being centre assessed grades. 

As a result we achieved;

  • 58.7% of students achieved a 4+ in English and Maths, an increase of 9.5% from 2019
  • 36.9% of students achieved a 5+ in English and Maths, an increase of 12.6% from 2019

This short Department for Education YouTube video explains what the new GCSEs mean and why they are being changed, visit the Department for Education's campaign page for further information.

Fullhurst Community College reviews

Fullhurst is committed to rigorous self-evaluation to drive forward improvements within the school. As such we have a comprehensive quality assurance programme and are involved in external partnerships to quality assure provision within the school.

Challenge Partners review January 2020

Thorough Challenge Partners , the college is peer reviewed by a team of senior leaders from schools across the country.  After two vigorous days of observations across all subjects, our visitors identified effective practice throughout all aspects of school life at Fullhurst.  View the full Challenge Partners Review report.

Pupil Premium review April 2015 

It was clear from my visit that the progress of its disadvantaged students is a key priority for the school. The Senior Leadership Team is extremely committed to ensuring that its disadvantaged pupils receive quality-first teaching across all subjects supported by effective interventions and access to as wide a range of opportunities as possible. The school has an extremely good awareness of its students and their specific needs and has implemented an impressive range of interventions to target Maths and English skills in particular and to widen opportunity accordingly. These interventions are monitored very effectively, enabling the school to anticipate where they may need to intervene to have further impact on pupil learning. This work has already seen gaps close rapidly. The focus on high quality first teaching is reducing the need for additional interventions and indicates the sustainability of ongoing improvements in the outcomes of those pupils eligible for Pupil Premium. David Deacon Executive Summary April 2015

College surveys

As part of our ongoing self-evaluation, the college regularly seeks the views of others. As such we take part in surveys carried out by a nationally recognised organisation, Kirkland Rowell, which not only gathers information about the college from parents and students, but allows these results to be compared to other schools and colleges in England. Below are links to our most recent  staff and student surveys. To look at parental surveys please follow this link to the  Ofsted Parent View site.

We are extremely pleased to report that 81 staff completed our most recent questionnaire with all areas being rated excellent. The top 2 being the appearance of the college and staff morale.
