The Skinners’ Kent Academy celebrates its GCSE results
The Skinners’ Kent Academy is extremely pleased to announce significantly improved exam results for our year 11 students. This is further evidence of the transformation of the Academy in only its second year. It reflects the dedication and hard work demonstrated by students and the excellent teaching and learning environment provided by staff.
In its two years of operation, the Academy has improved the core measure of students with 5 or more GCSEs at grade A*-C including Maths and English by an outstanding 171%.
The Skinners’ Kent Academy Principal, Sian Carr, said “These superb results are testimony to the rigorous efforts of the students in collaboration with Academy staff and parents. They illustrate that students at The Skinners’ Kent Academy can achieve, will achieve and do achieve. I would like to congratulate them on their achievements and wish them the brightest of futures.”
Pippa Anderson said of her daughter’s results “I am very pleased, Rosie has made huge progress. The staff has been very supportive and the whole Academy is really moving forward.”
Student Amy Banda said “I’m ecstatic and it feels like all my hard work was worth it. I’m really thankful to the teachers for all their hard work and support. I’m now going to do ‘A’ levels in English Literature, English Language, History and Media and would like to go into journalism in the future.”
The Academy transformation is already well under way. Exam results are up and a recent Ofsted report noted that most students are making good progress and an increasing number are making outstanding progress. The Academy has a fantastic team of teachers, including Kent Teacher of the Year, and a strong team of Governors and Friends, not to mention fantastic support from main sponsor, The Skinners’ School.
