The academy’s results in English and mathematics remained strong in 2017 with 53% of students achieving Grade 4 in both subject areas. There was a three percentage point increase in the number of students achieving the Government’s EBacc measure. High grades were also common, with a large number of students achieving the new Grade 9 results in English and/or mathematics. The new Grade 9 is the equivalent of a very high A*.
These students include:
- Ebony Geddes – achieved Grade 8 in English Language, Grade 9 in English Literature, Grade 7 in mathematics, 5A* grades and 2 A grades.
- Travis Halladay – achieved Grade 9 in English Language and English Literature, Grade 7 in mathematics, 3A* grades and 4 A grades.
- Oliver Underwood – achieved Grade 7 in English Language, Grade 9 in English Literature, Grade 9 in mathematics, 7A* grades and 1 A grade.
- Harry Van Leeuwen – achieved Grade 9 in English Language, Grade 8 in English Literature, Grade 8 in mathematics, 5A* grades and 3 A grades.
Value Added indicators have consistently placed the academy in the top 25% of secondary schools nationally and, based on our most recent GCSE results, we anticipate that this will remain the case in 2017. This clearly demonstrates the success of our innovative curriculum and represents the high levels of progress that our students make in a wide range of subject areas.
All of our Year 11 students successfully entered further education, employment or training. We congratulate them on their achievements and look forward to ensuring that all our future students realise their full potential.
