The data summarised below is that used by the government when comparing schools in league tables. Comparative data for these results can be viewed here.
Pass Rate: 100%
Average Grade: B+ (43.4)
Average of Best 3 Grades: A- (45.1)
Proportion of High Grades (A*, A or B): 79%
Proportion of A* or A grades: 51%
Progress Score: 0.45
The average grade places EMS in the top 3% and the progress score places EMS in the top 2% of providers, both public and state sector.
For us, this is the most important measure; are our students achieving better than would be expected based on their prior performance?
We can say a resounding “Yes”. All groups of students achieved positive Value Added Scores, on average achieving almost half a grade higher per subject than expected based on achievement in GCSEs.
Our progress score places EMS in the top 75 of all schools, both state and private, and in the top 3 of the four counties we serve. EMS is the highest performing state school in our region, based on these measures.
Our Value Added score for A-level Mathematics of 1.01, places us 27th nationally and 3rd in the region. For progress in Mathematics, EMS is the best performing state school from Corwall, Devon, Dorset and Somerset.
Not to be outdone, our year 12 students have exceeded expectations with some fantastic results, on average achieving a grade higher than predicted in all three of our core subjects: Mathematics, Physics and Computer Science.
94% of students have firmly accepted places at University, including degree apprenticeships.
18% of students have secured Oxbridge places.
One student is training in accountancy and another is working in Computer Science.

A number of our students are studying for four or five years to include a year in Industry and/or a Masters qualification. A summary of the subjects chosen is below.
|Subject||Number of Students||Proportion of Students|
|Mathematics and Statistics||3||9.1%|
|Mathematics with Economics||1||3.0%|
In 2015 we receive AS results for the first time. As a new school, no students were in year 13 and therefore no A-level results existed. Last summer’s results are discussed in a news and events article here.
