Over 60% of pupils achieved the new higher Level 5 grade and above in English. 8% of pupils gained the new Grade 9 (A**) across English and Mathematics and the percentage of all pupils achieving five or more A*-C grades including English and Mathematics has risen again this year by 6% to over 50%. 30% of pupils gained five or more A**-B grades and 25% 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 Higher Tier in Mathematics. 98% achieved the new Grades 4-9. 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, ‘I am very proud of all our pupils and of the teaching and support teams across the Academy who guide and encourage pupils throughout the year. Many pupils achieved exam results in the top 2% of the population. This success is the result of the dedication, commitment of staff, the hard work and positive attitudes of pupils and the high level of support received from parents. My warmest congratulations to all our Year 11 pupils, they deserve every success. I look forward to welcoming many pupils into the Sixth Form in September. Congratulations to everyone involved’.
