EBacc: best in county

Fowey Community College is joint highest in Cornwall with Richard Lander for English Baccalaureate results.

The EBacc is a performance measure, not a qualification, introduced by the government in 2010.The measure shows where students have secured a C Grade or above across a core of academic subjects at Key Stage 4. Ofsted takes this measure into account when inspecting a school.

The EBacc measures A*-C Grade GCSEs or an accredited Certificate pass (including IGCSE) in the following combination of subjects:

  • English
  • Mathematics
  • History or Geography
  • two Sciences
  • an Ancient or Modern Foreign Language.

In 2013, 37% of Fowey students achieved the EBacc, placing us equal first in Cornwall. We also achieved our highest ever exam results with 59% five A*-C Grades (including English and Maths) and 72% five A*-C Grades across any five subjects. Read more about why the EBacc is important here.
