Fitzharrys is an improving school that is really going places. We are delighted to celebrate a 12% rise in our GCSE results in 2014 to 60% 5A*-C including English and Maths. Our English results rose by 11%, and results in Maths built on last year’s 16% increase to go up by a further 9%. Top grades rose across the school. Our A Level results are also a new school record for students based at and taught at Fitzharrys, as part of the Abingdon Consortium for Education. We are very proud of our students and staff, and it is great to see their hard work, commitment and determination rewarded in this way.
We are particularly seeking applicants with skills in any of the following: premises management/construction, health & safety or financial management but would welcome any application from members of the community who want to make a difference. Click here for further details and how to apply.

The Fitzharrys House system is just one of the ways in which students develop and demonstrate our core values of Leadership, Excellence, Ambition, Respect and No Limits. There are so many ways in which everyone can win points for themselves and for their House. The healthy competition encourages students to reach for greater heights. You can see the latest scores between the four houses below.

Exam success at Fitzharrys – another year of records
Fitzharrys students in the Abingdon Consortium for Education are once again celebrating record A Level exam results. The percentage of A* and A grades is once more above the national average, with 11% of students achieved at least 3 A* or A grades. At A*-B the figure is 56%, above national average, up 4% from last year and a 10% rise in two years. These are a fantastic achievement from the students in Abingdon, proof of the consistently rising standards in our community.
Performances at Fitzharrys have sustained last year’s record results. In particular % of students achieving AAB or higher in the facilitating subjects for top universities has risen again. A* and A grades exceeded the national average.
At GCSE there have been many real success stories across the school, both for individual students and for departments. The percentage of grades at A*/A is a new school record. 20% of students achieved 5 or more A*/A grades. We have seen more A^ results than previously, the grade above A* awarded for exceptional achievement.
80% of students achieved A*-C in Maths. This is up 4% on last year’s record results, and a fantastic 29% higher than in 2012. These strides forward show the success across the school. 9 subjects achieved A*-C of 80% or higher, and many subjects showed significant increases on the strong results of last year.
Congratulations to all students and staff for their great efforts and achievements.

We have already shared this with parents in one of our regular open meetings. It builds upon the existing strengths that our students, staff, parents and inspectors recognise, and shows where we are heading. Details of our vision in action.
