Record GCSE results - Thursday 21st August



We're delighted to announce that the academy has achieved record GCSE results for the fifth year in a row. Overall 66% of students achieved five higher GCSE grades including English and maths (up 5% from last year's previous best of 61%). Students and staff have worked incredibly hard to overcome the continual changes that were made to the examination regime whilst this cohort were completing their courses and it's a huge credit to all that results have moved so far forwards again despite this. 

A particular feature of this year's results were the high numbers of A and A* grades (over 500 in total this year) and the eighteen students who achieved at least 8 A or A* grades in their results. A fantastic year group with which to start our new sixth form! Work is nearly complete on our new Sixth Form facilities and many students were able to see their new common room for the first time today, which added to the excitement.

Visita al Parque de Ocio Shaw Ridge

Some Y8s had the opportunity to visit the Leisure Park to make short video clips in Spanish of the work they had completed on DONDE VIVO YO earlier in the term.  They enjoyed showing off their group work in this manner and hope to use it to share with link schools in Nicaragua and Spain.
