Academic Success Hollygirt School

Academic Success

Hollygirt School’s examination results demonstrate a consistent record of excellent academic attainment.

The level of attainment based on entry data shows some of the best ‘value added’ scores in Nottingham, with many pupils achieving between one and two grades higher than could reasonably have been expected across their subjects.This is a product of their hard work, small teaching groups, good quality specialist teachers and support from home.

The size of our GCSE classes should be taken into consideration when viewing statistics in percentage form. What is important to us is for individuals to fulfil their academic potential at whatever level this is: for a high flier, the expectation is clearly 9/8 grades, for others in the same cohort, achieving 9 – 4 grades is their target for personal success.
