Our results

We encourage all our students to take pride in their achievements and recognise their personal learning journey.

Outcomes for students 2022/23

We were, once again, extremely proud of our students' outcomes this year. The students completed a variety of examinations, including GCSEs, BTECs and Functional Skills as well as leaving with a suite of opportunities and enrichment experiences that will support their future pathways and help develop them as positive citizens.

Entries in all core subjects are in line with mainstream national averages and are 27% higher than alternative provision (AP) national averages in maths and 37% higher in English.

On average, students gained seven qualifications against a national average of 2.47 for AP. 81% of students gained a 1+ in English and maths, which is 62% higher than the AP national average.

We have achieved 44 L1 BTECs across the cohort, with an average of just under three per student, as well as 13 L2 Cooking BTECs. We have also achieved 10 English and four Maths Functional Skills qualifications complimenting 13 English and 13 maths Entry Level Certificates.

Given the difficult journey that many of our students have had in formal education we are delighted with their achievements.

As of September 2023, 85% of these students have moved onto post-16 study, most to college to study courses varying from construction, uniformed services and art & design. With our partnership work with the local authority and the transitions advisor, we are working hard to support all of our students to settle into their next phase of learning. We will be following their progress and wishing them every success for the future.

Outcomes for students 2021/22

Summer 2022 was the first time many of our students had taken formal exams due to the COVID pandemic. We were extremely proud of how all our students rose to this challenge and completed a variety of exams including GCSEs, BTEC and Functional Skills. All our students achieved a qualification and over 80% achieved an English and Maths GCSE. Given the difficult journey that many of our students have had in formal education we are delighted with their achievements.

And most important of all, all our 15 year 11s have moved onto post 16 study, most to Sixth Form College to do courses varying from tree surgery to carpentry, and from mechanics to business studies. A third have part time jobs alongside their course, working in performing arts, as a life guard or in construction. We will be following their progress and supporting them all the way!

Outcomes for students 2018/2019

Olive AP Academy – Havering performed way above national averages for alternative provision schools and pupil referral units in this year’s exams. This year’s results show that the children and young people we work with are leaving us with the qualifications they need to fulfil their ambitions and go on to apprenticeships and further education.

Mark Vickers, Chief Executive, Olive Academies said, “It is really encouraging to see that so many of our young people are now leaving us with a range of GCSE qualifications that they would never have thought possible a year or two ago. This is only the start of our journey and I expect considerable continued improvements. We are determined that every young person we work with gain the qualifications and grades they want and so urgently need to transform their lives.”
