Results and Progress

Craven Pupil Referral Service is more than a building where teachers deliver lessons. We see ourselves as a unique and supportive service where pupils are supported across all areas of life and learn valuable life lessons.


Our staff of highly qualified teachers deliver superb lessons ensuring pupils make maximum progress and every pupil has a personal mentor to support on other areas too. Our educational expertise and personal commitment and dedication to improving the life experiences of often vulnerable young people make significant contributions to fostering a culture of mutual respect and co-operation.


That said, our primary focus must be to work hard with pupils to help them secure the best qualifications they can to give them a better chance of success in further education, training or employment.


GCSE Results 2017


We are delighted to congratulate the class of 2017 on some incredible GCSE achievements. These superb results reflect the tremendous hard work of pupils amd staff.


Pupils have done themselves proud in GCSE exams and 100% have secured places on the further education courses of their choice.  

This is the first year of much tougher GCSE 9-1 exams in Maths and English but pupils have risen to the challenge, showing great resilience and determination to succeed.

In fact, a staggering 67% of all year 11 pupils (100% of those entered) achieved both GCSE Maths and English at grade 4 (equivalent to old grade C) or above. We are proud to report this is the best ever set of GCSE Maths results for the PRS. The remaining 33% of pupils worked hard to complete Entry Maths and English qualifications. There were also some excellent achievements in GCSE Science, General Studies and Child Care and a 100% success rate in ECDL, Home Cooking, Arts Award and Vocational Studies.

As always, Craven PRS results compare very favourably with other schools. 67% of pupils achieved both GCSE Maths and English at grade 4 or above, compared with 3.4% of Alternative Providers nationally (based on latest available data); 52% more pupils passed GCSE Maths and 57% more passed GCSE English Language at Grade 4 or above than pupils in similar schools.

The small year 11 cohort of six pupils achieved some fantastic individual results, which is particularly impressive as most completed the rigorous GCSE courses in less than a year.

We are celebrating some excellent individual performances that include:

·      One pupil that achieved 10 GCSE’s, including nine at grade A/7 or above.

·      One pupil that achieved the new, highly coveted GCSE grade 8 in English Language.

·     Four part-time pupils that achieved grade 4 or above in both GCSE English and Maths, despite missing a substantial amount of schooling, prior to joining the PRS.

·      Two pupils that completed a number of BTEC vocational courses that included Home Cooking level 2 and Vocational Studies level 1.

Pupils are moving onto an impressive range of further education courses that include Fine Art, Health and Social Care and Media Make Up at Level 3; Fashion at Level 2; and Multi-Skills Level 1.  

We wish all of our Year 11 Leavers every success in the future.


Some of our year 9 and 10 pupils also sat exams in 2017. Congratulations to everyone who has passed GCSE Maths, Science and General Studies, Functional English and Maths, ECDL, Home Cooking and Arts Award. We looked forward to your continued exams successes over the next year.

Pupil Progress

Most KS4 pupils attend for one year and we are delighted with the progress that pupils made during their short time with us.


We are very pleased that last academic year (2016-2017):


100% of pupils made at least 1 level of progress from Baseline at the start of the year in English and Science. 83% of pupils made at least 2 levels of progress from Baseline in English. 50% of pupils made 2 levels of progress from Baseline in Maths. 17% of pupils made 3 levels of progress from Baseline in Science.


Progress from KS2 is rarely used as a measure of success in Pupil Referral Centres but we are incredibly proud of pupil achievements and want to celebrate pupil progress against the rigorous measures used, until recently, by mainstream schools: 


In 2016-2017, 50% of all year 11 pupils made at least 3 Levels of Progress in both English and Maths from KS2-KS4.


67% made 3 levels of progress & 17% made 5 levels of progress from KS2 in English.


50% of pupils made 3 levels of Progress and 17% made 4 levels of Progress from KS2 in Maths.
