Class of 2017 gain outstanding GCSE results!
Following on from the record breaking class of 2016, who made the 4th best progress of all schools in England with the same entry profile, our 2017 leavers have delivered outstanding results in English and maths and top class results in many other subjects. This is a huge achievement against the background of new GCSE’s being much harder, a new numerical grading system being introduced and the removal of coursework.
Our students worked incredibly hard with great support from their teachers and parents. As far as the headline figures go 76% of our students achieved a level 4 or above in English and maths and 47% gained a level 5 or above. We have had some stand out individual results such as from Sophie Walker who gained a top level 9 in both English and English Literature a level 7 in maths and A grades in all her other subjects.
These results followed by the publication of our excellent Ofsted report following inspection on July 5th puts the academy in a very strong position to go from strength to strength.
