Examination Results 2018
Our 2018 GCSE results were mixed. Progress in Mathematics, Spanish, Geography and D&T was significantly above National Average. 40% of students studying a foreign language achieved a grade 7 or above, a fantastic result for a comprehensive cohort. The same was true in both Geography and History. Mathematics results were once again in the top 20% nationally for progress.
Science results suffered from staffing disruption in 2016-7. While the new department has made progress, there was still an impact on the 2018 outcomes in both Science and overall. Plans are now in place and the 2019 cohort will do significantly better.

Examination Results 2017
2017 once again saw strong results. Despite year-on-year comparisons being complicated by exam changes, we are confident of continued strong performance. 82% of students achieved a grade 4 or higher in Maths, exactly the same figure as saw the department in the top 4% nationally for progress in 2016. 8 students achieved the coveted new Grade 9. In English, 83% of students achieved one or more grade 4 or higher across the two subjects.
71% of students achieved 5 or more subjects at grade C / level 4 or above, the same as in 2016.
A number of other individual subjects also achieved excellent results, in particular French (5 A*s from a group of 22), Biology, Art and Systems and Control.

Examination Results 2016
Students at Melbourn Village College celebrated a strong set of results in 2016 and plenty of improvement with 74 per cent of students achieving A* - C in English and Maths.
The percentage of students achieving 5 A* - C grades inc. English and Maths rose 20 per cent on last year, to 69 per cent – this is well above the national average - and students achieving expected progress in English and Maths was high at 85 per cent.
There was particular success for our Maths department where 58 per cent of students made more than expected progress –we’re hoping to continue a trend that saw the College in the top 5% of Maths departments in the country last year.
We are really happy with these results – I’d like to take the chance to say thank you to all our students for their hard work. We hope they’re as proud of their results as we are.
