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.

You can find out more about our results over three years in each subject by viewing this document.

2019 results

  • 70% of all grades are A*-B
  • 90% of all grades are A*-C
  • 99.6% of all grades are A*-E
  • 20% of students got all A*/A grades

Please note that in 2020 our students received Centre Assessed Grades (CAGs) because of the Covid-19 pandemic. These were in line with previous years' outstanding results.
