Wirral Hospitals’ School Examination Results 2014

Nationally, Hospital Schools, Alternative Provision and Pupil Referral Units achieved 5.5% GCSE’s at (5A*- C). Wirral Hospitals’ School achieved a fantastic 35.0%.
 
This year our results are the best ever and reflect the changing nature of the school which continues to nurture students who lack health and resilience, whilst providing a stimulating and challenging curriculum, which has grown in diversity and in our expectations of achievement. As a consequence the average number of GCSEs gained has risen by 2 GCSEs per student.
 
Our focus on outstanding teaching and learning, combined with our expertise in intervention and support with a wide range of issues, has resulted in a rapid rise in the number of students gaining GCSEs at grades A*-C. Over the last 12 months the number of students gaining 5A*- C at Wirral Hospital has risen greatly to 35.0% and the vast majority of these students gained both English and Mathematics. This is in sharp contrast with the National picture for Hospital Schools and Alternative Provision and Pupil Referral Units which provided a benchmark of 5.5% in 2013 and is expected to produce similar figures this year.
 
2013-2014 was our second year offering a full time provision to students in Key Stage 3 and 4 and so the students in Year 11 were our first cohort who had the opportunity of up to two years of full or fuller time study, prior to taking their GCSE’s. Some students became members of JPC during Key Stage 3, others during Year 10, and some part way through Year 11, often following long periods of time out of education. Year 11 students were able to study English, Mathematics, Science, ICT and a range of options in GCSEs or alternative qualifications.
Our students face a variety of health, mental health and well-being issues which can threaten attendance and engagement at school. The severity of the issues presented by our students prevent them from attending mainstream secondary schools and have a significant effect on memory and processing, making accessing GCSEs and formal assessment very difficult.
 
Overcoming these barriers, this year some of our students gained eight GCSEs or equivalent at A*-C and many have achieved A*, A or B’s in their results. Significant numbers are now able to achieve 3, 4, 5 or 6 levels of progress from their Key Stage 2 results. The huge improvement in standards, attainment and achievement is set against demand for places, increased class sizes, and ever more complex individuals being referred and accepted.
 
We meet our students’ aspirations through building resilience, offering opportunities and challenge and providing well-targeted specialist support and intervention.
