Mr Williams highlights that early entry English exam results shows positive progress being made for students across Year 11...

Since the start of the new academic year there have been a number of significant changes made to the Academy, not only in terms of culture and ethos but mainly around our core business - understanding the need to constantly improve the quality of teaching and learning, leading to better outcomes linked to progress and achievement. 

I must say at this point, that staff and students have been exceptional in the way they have embraced these changes and there is a real sense of optimism and high expectation around the Academy.


On that note, it gives me great pleasure in sharing the positive news about our iGCSE English language results. 78% of the year group sat the exam in November, of which, 75% achieved A*-C.  So in terms of the entire cohort, we have already improved on last year’s summer results by 5% (59% A*-C) with expected levels of progress improving by 7% (56%) and more than expected progress by 9% (27%).  


Individually, there were some outstanding performances by students, namely Summer Walker and Kit Harold who made five levels of progress to achieve a grade B and Harry Edwards who made six levels of progress to achieve an A*!

A huge thank you to the English team and Teaching Assistants, who believed in the students and stopped at nothing to help them achieve these positive outcomes.
