GCSE exam results

Posted on 28.08.2017

This summer, Dixons Trinity's first set of full GCSEs have delivered outstanding results - a testament to the commitment the students, their families and the whole community have shared:

  • 70% of students achieved a strong pass in English and mathematics combined (grade 5+; equivalent to a high C and low B on the old grading system)
  • 48% achieved a strong pass in the EBacc (grade 5+)
  • 37% of all grades were 7 / A or above
  • 15% of students achieved at least one grade 9
  • 55% of students achieved top grades (7 / 8 / 9; equivalent to A or above) in English
  • The average grade achieved by a student at Trinity was a B

These results mean that Dixons Trinity Academy, Bradford, is the highest performing state school in Bradford and Leeds.

As a result, Dixons Trinity, Bradford, has featured in the national and regional press this week:
