Lodge Park Academy has for the second year running shown a significant increase in the number of students achieving the top grades.
Nearly 50 per cent of the students at the academy, which formally joined the David Ross Education Trust in January this year, achieved five GCSEs at A*-C including English and maths. This is a significant increase on just two years ago when results fell below current national targets.
Alison Hayes, Associate Principal, congratulated staff and students on their success.
She said: “There are lots of smiling faces around Lodge Park, both staff and students, and this is the best indicator of the momentum building at the academy. In short, more of our students are achieving better results in a greater number of subjects, and this is really opening doors for all of them.”
Aside from the headline five A*- C including maths and English results, over 82 per cent of students achieved five GCSEs at C or above - compared to 76 per cent in 2011.
“I am delighted that the academy is establishing itself as a place where young people can really go to achieve their potential. The results are a clear reflection of the progress we are making and all the hard work shown.”
Among the students celebrating were high achievers Leonie Weston, Christopher Simpkins and Jade Doyle who achieved a staggering 10 A*s and 19 As between them.
Mrs Hayes added: “We had a great set of A-Level results, we can now match that academic success with a strong set of GCSEs. We are very proud of all our students and wish them all the best in their future studies.”
