Examinations & Results
It is King James’s policy to enter all students for public examinations in the courses they have been following. In exceptional circumstances, such as failure to complete coursework or controlled assessment, we may withdraw a student’s entry for examination.
Parents are advised that any requests for student absence during internal and external examination periods will not be authorised.
For further information please contact Exams Manager – Louise Smith

King James´s has an excellent academic record. Student outcomes are strong leading to 97% of students staying in education or employment with training
Attainment of our Year 11 students is consistently above national average. In 2023, 54.1% of students achieved a grade 5 or higher in both English and Mathematics. In total, 71.4% of students achieved the Level 2 benchmark of 5 grades of above 4 including English and Maths.. All students are able to choose subjects that form the EBacc, should they wish. It is currently a non-compulsory option within our Key Stage 4 curriculum. 20% entered the EBacc subjects and achieved an average points score of 4.21.
King James´s Sixth Form students also attain and progress well. Our Sixth Form admissions policy is more inclusive than many providers and, therefore, the ability profile of the cohort is very mixed.
Given the uneven impact of the pandemic on school and college performance data, the government has said you should not make direct comparisons between performance data for one school or college and another, or to data from previous years.
