2023 Exam Results
Year 11 students at West Exe School are celebrating a truly magnificent set of exam results.
- 22% of students achieved a grade 7 or above across all subjects in line with the national average and above the South West regional average of 20.8%
- 80% of students achieved a standard pass in both English and Maths, significantly outperforming the national average of 68.2% against all subjects
Head teacher Julie Fossey said “We are so proud of each and every one of our students today. Regardless of their starting point or prior learning, they have risen to the challenge and bucked the national trend. They should be so proud of all they have achieved not just today, but over the last five years. I know they will join me in thanking every member of the West Exe School staff and wider community for all that they have done, and continue to do to enable our young people to achieve success and to leave us ready for the exciting challenges of the next few years.”
These results demonstrate the resilience and determination of our students; they have worked tirelessly both in school and out and proved to themselves just what their hard work can do. They are now really well placed to go on to the destination of their choice with so many of them celebrating that today.

Holly O, a Year 11 student who is moving onto Exeter College to study Drama, Environmental Science and Politics said “It is a relief but also such an achievement to have conquered so much through Covid and I am so pleased with my results. On top of the extra activities I took part in such as Ten Tors, DofE and the role of Head Prefect, it is the supportive staff and tutors and an incredible amount of hard work that enabled me to achieve this. I feel really proud of myself and it feels wonderful that I have had such a positive impact on the school in my time here.”
Julie adds “Year 11, today’s results are results you can be proud of – you have been an amazing year group who have achieved so much throughout your time here, well done to each and everyone one of you."
