Wonderful GCSE and A-level Results – 2023

Nishkam's ‘faith-inspired, virtues-led’ approach to education has helped shape the character of our Year 11 students and those self-same virtues, such as optimism, diligence and determination have all been severely tested during the Covid pandemic that has so disrupted their studies across both Key Stage 3 and Key Stage 4. However, collectively they have provided GCSE and A-level results that should make all those associated with the school feel humble, but proud.

The hard work and determination of our students has resulted in the following headlines:

  NHSB 2023 National Average (all schools) 2022*
**Attainment 8 56 46.5
Pupil premium **Attainment 8 56  
***Progress 8 +0.96 (TBC) 0
Grade 9-7 27% 21.6%
****Ebacc average 5.36 4.05
Grade 9-5 in both English/Maths 68% 44.8%
Grade 9-4 in both English/Maths 84% 67.8%

Overall results are estimated to place the school overall in the top 5% of all schools nationally

*2023 figures will be published by the DfE in due course

**Attainment 8 score is the average measure of an individual student's progress across their 8 best performing subjects taken at GCSE level.

***A Progress 8 score is usually between -1 and +1. A score of +1 means that pupils in that school achieve one grade higher in each qualification than other similar pupils nationally. A score of -1 means they achieve one grade lower. The average Progress 8 score of all secondary schools nationally is 0

****The English Baccalaureate (EBacc) average point score includes English, Maths, Science, a humanity and language GCSE.

Higher than national averages for A-level results.

Among some of the achievements were some outstanding results:


Amreen K achieved eight grade 9s and three grade 8s

Baldip C achieved nine grade 9s, one grade 8 and one grade 6

We are indebted to the tremendous work of all the staff at Nishkam High School who help guide and inspire our students. We would also like to also thank parents and the wider community who have helped our children steer a path through the last five and seven years. We look forward to seeing many of our GCSE students extend their journey with Nishkam by returning into our Sixth Form when the new academic year commences in September.
