Fantastic GCSE results to be proud of
A huge congratulations to our Year 11 leavers who achieved a great set of results this year. It is always great to see the hard work and commitment throughout the year come to fruition in results that staff and students can be proud of. Special thanks must also go to all the parents, staff and governors who have supported the academy throughout the year and helped our students achieve success.
Again this year, we have a number of departments who have performed above the national average. Our English results remain particularly impressive and we are delighted that the number of students achieving the very top grades, across more subject areas, has increased too.
This year saw the introduction of the new, tougher, English Language, English Literature and Mathematics exams along with a new grading system. The very top grades (grade 9) were reserved for the very top proportion of students nationally and represent achievement even higher than the old A*. We were delighted that our students achieved some of these grade 9 results. There were only 2000 students in the country that achieved grade 9 in all three new exams. One of these was a student at the academy – and we are enormously proud of all of these exceptional results.
Mr Brice, Principal
