Over recent years Redborne has consistently obtained some of the best examination results in the county. This year (2012) our GCSE results were again excellent - not only were they the best in the school’s history, they were also one of the best in the local authority. Early indications suggest our value added score is also very high and would clearly be rated as ‘outstanding’ again by OFSTED. Our A Level and AS results are our best ever, and are graded “outstanding” on the Advanced level performance system value added measures (ALPS)
