GCSE Results 2013 - most improved school in Manchester
- 57% of students achieved 5 A*-C grades including Maths and English - a 16% increase on 2012 results
- 36% of students gained the highest (A* or A) grades
- English A*-C grades in particular have rocketed from 47% (2012) to 65% (2013) and 80% of students have made 3 levels of progress in English - higher than the national average of 67%.
This week The Co-operative Academy of Manchester is celebrating its best GCSE results since opening in 2010. An excellent 57% of Year 11 achieved 5 A*-C grades including English and Maths.
Our results are an impressive 16% increase on last year - showing the dedication and determination of both students and staff. Click-Manchester.com has reported this as the biggest increase of all Manchester schools.
This increase is even more impressive when you consider that it goes against the national trend - in England as a whole the percentage of students achieveing C grades and above has fallen (read more about this on the Guardian website).
Students are delighted with their results, which will ensure their continued success in Further Education or training, and eventually in their chosen careers. Below are a few quotes from students as they collected their results on Thursday.

I am now excited to start college." – Robbyn San Esteban"I am very proud of me, I am happy with my results and I know that they help my future.
