Ofsted and performance tables

In May 2012, Tuxford became the first secondary school in Nottinghamshire to be judged by Ofsted to be outstanding for the second time. 

Tuxford is  outstanding.  The Sixth Form is good.  Students thrive academically and develop personal  qualities and attitudes that prepare them very well for adult life.  The academy's very high expectations and exceptional support and guidance ensure that students, including those facing barriers to engagement and achievement, are given every opportunity to succeed.  The overwhelming positive response from students, staff, parents and carers affirm the academy's outstanding effectiveness.

2017 GCSE results 

We had another excellent year of GCSE results. 23% of all grades were A*-A (or the new equivalent, 7+), which is up from 11% in 2016.  70% of students at the academy achieved five or more standard passes (the new grade 4 or equivalent) including English and maths, up from 67% in 2016.

The overall amount of students who were awarded five or more A*-G grades has also risen to 99.2%, up from 97.9 last year.

The new grading system for some GCSEs has meant that 3.2% of students across England were awarded a grade 9 in English literature, 2.2% in English language and 3.5% in maths.

The following information is taken from the Department for Education's website.
