Pupils celebrate the best ever GCSE results at Alec Reed Academy
Over 20% of pupils achieved the new A**/A equivalent grades by gaining Grade 9-7 in their examinations. 65% of pupils achieved Grades 9-5 in the core subjects of English and Maths and 28% of all pupils also gained the new English Baccalaureate Certificate by achieving A*-C grades or equivalent in English, Mathematics, Science, Foreign Languages and Humanities.
Congratulations to all pupils who studied for the additional Further Mathematics GCSE in which 70% of pupils achieved Grades 9-6 (A*B). All pupils studied GCSE in Religious Education, 10% gained the new Grade 9 and 60% gained Grades equivalent to A*-C. In Art, Music, Drama, Design Technology, Health and Social Care and Sport GCSEs over 80% of pupils gained Grades 9-4 (A*C). These excellent results are confirmed by a highly positive outcome for the Academy in the new Progress 8 school performance measure.
Gary Lobbett, Chief Executive of the Academy commented, ‘These results in the reformed and tougher GCSEs are even stronger than last year. Our pupils took the full range of qualifications including the arts, humanities and foreign languages. There are many individual success stories to celebrate, reflecting two or more years of hard work and determination. Alec Reed students can now move onto the next stage of their education with confidence. My thanks to all members of staff at the Academy whose dedication has been rewarded today, including those in Alec Reed primary school who lay the foundations that we build upon each year. Congratulations to everyone involved’.
