Leeds East Academy


Exam Results

Outcomes 2019/20

The following report provides an analysis of the Leeds East Academy outcomes for Year 11 students entered for GCSE and vocational qualifications during the 2020 summer series. As announced on August 17th 2020 by Ofqual, the results for each student are based on the highest of either the Centre Assessed Grades (CAGs) or the national moderated grades.   

The process that was undertaken prior to submitting the Centre Assessed Grades was reported on, discussed and interrogated at SLT, Trust and LAB level. We are confident that this process has provided coherence, transparency, rigour and challenge and was centred upon the principle that all students received grades which are a fair representation of what they would have achieved in the summer exam series.  

There are no school performance tables for the academic year 2019-2020 due to the Coronavirus Pandemic and absence of exams.  

A statement from the Principal: 

"We are absolutely delighted with this year's results which clearly demonstrate the hard work and determination of staff and students at LEA under significantly challenging circumstances. We are always incredibly proud of our students and their achievements and today marks a day of celebration for our young people who have secured the results they deserve.  These results are testament to the dedication of our wonderful students and staff. These results have been achieved through hard work, commitment and integrity, despite the difficulty of the last six months. We would like to congratulate all our Year 11 students on their amazing achievements and thank all our staff for their incredible work over the course of this academic year.”

School and College Performance Tables

Performance tables are produced by the Department of Education every year following the publication of GCSE results. They show key headline figures for every school and Academy. You will be able to see, at a glance, key performance indicators.

Progress 8 and Attainment 8 

Progress 8 and Attainment 8 are based on students’ performance in eight qualifications. These are English and Maths, up to three subjects from the Ebacc list, and students’ three highest scores from a range of other qualifications, including GCSEs and approved non-GCSEs. English and Maths are given double weighting to reflect their importance. 

The English Baccalaureate, or EBacc, is a measure of how many students achieve a good GCSE pass in six core academic subjects: English, maths, history or geography, combined science (which counts as two passes) and a language. In addition, students must take both English language and literature, although they only need a grade 5+ in one of them.
