The Skinners’ Kent Academy is celebrating its best ever set of GCSE exam results. 56% of students achieved 5 or more GCSEs, including English and Maths. This reflects a consistent upward trend in results since the Academy opened six years ago.
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.”
The 2015 results show the outstanding progress made by students. 86% of students made expected progress in English and 83% 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.
Student, Connor Squair, said: “I’m delighted, particularly with my A* in Maths! Now I can go on to study 4 ‘A’ levels and hope to study engineering at university.”
Parent, Mrs Wheeler, said: “I’m immensely proud of Sam’s achievements and really grateful for the opportunities the Academy has given him. This set of results takes Sam to where he wants go and he now can’t wait to start in the sixth form.”
