Students are once again celebrating their GCSE examination results at Brooke Weston.
On average, each student secured 14 GCSEs at A* to C and 40 per cent of all entries were graded at A* or A.
There were many outstanding individual performances with 47 students in Year 11 attaining eight or more GCSEs at A* or A grades and the top two students achieving 11 straight A* grades each. Some students were also given the opportunity to take A-Level courses alongside their GCSEs and a total of nine A / A* grades were achieved by eight students in fast tracked level three courses.
One of the key measures of GCSE achievement is the levels of progress secured by students in English and maths. More than 80 per cent of the Year 11 cohort made the expected three or more levels of progress in each of the two subjects with almost 40 per cent achieving four levels of progress, figures which are significantly above the national average levels of progress published last year.
Younger students in the academy also had cause for GCSE celebration with two Year 8 students achieving outstanding results in French and Russian at A* and A grade respectively. GCSE results for papers sat by Year 10 were very strong with over 50 A and A* GCSE grades achieved by students in this year group.
Principal Trish Stringer said: “Congratulations to all the students who have worked hard to achieve these results. Every student can be proud of their achievements and, as always, special thanks go to the all the teaching staff whose dedication and support has enabled the students to be celebrating today.”
