The 2015 results show the outstanding progress made by students. 86% of students made expected progress in English and 80% made expected progress in Maths: this is significantly higher than the national average of 70% in both subjects. This progress is reflected in the subject results with 67% achieving A*-C in English and 75% A*-C in Maths.
Executive Principal, Mrs Sian Carr, said: “Sheer hard work, determination and perseverance do pay dividends - staff and students applied themselves and we are delighted that we have achieved the best ever set of GCSE results for the Academy, but most importantly for the students. We are very proud of what has been achieved.”
