2018 Key Stage 4 (end of Year 11) results

GCSE results have improved for the third consecutive year.

Compared on Basics (EM5), UTCN is the 3rd highest performing UTC nationally out of 49 UTCs and the 16th highest performing secondary school out of 109 in Norfolk. On Progress 8 (time spent at UTCN), UTCN is 9th out of 109 schools in Norfolk.

    • 100% of our year 11 students went on to higher education or apprenticeships (2017: 100%)
    • 47% of pupils got a grade 5 or better in English and Mathematics (Basics) (2017:40%)
    • Attainment 8 point score is 45.5 (2017:42.4)
    • UTCN Progress 8 Score (time at UTCN) +0.23
    • DfE Progress 8 score (includes 3 years spent at previous schools) -0.42
    • 4% of pupils were entered for the English Baccalaureate and 2% of pupils achieved a Strong English Baccalaureate (at Grade 5 or higher)


The DfE Progress 8 measure looks at student progress from the end of Year 6 to the end of Year 11. As UTCs only have students for 20 out of the 60 months of this period, we calculate our own Progress 8 Score using nationally recognised GL Assessment Data.

Whist it is no longer a recognised benchmark some schools quote the percentage of pupils getting a grade 4 or better in English and Mathematics 2018:63% (2017: 61%)

The EBacc figure shows the percentage of students in traditional academic subjects including a language and history or geography. The English Baccalaureate does not include technical subjects and so whilst it is available, very few of our students choose to follow it, preferring to study subjects such as Engineering which are more relevant to the 21st century.
