Students and staff are celebrating exceptional examination results at Brooke Weston Academy. An impressive 84% achieved at least five A* to C graded GCSEs including English and mathematics; a significant increase on last year’s figure.
In each of the core subjects of English, maths, science and modern foreign languages, over 90% of students attained an A* to C grade. In English and mathematics, more than 80% of students made three or more levels of progress from their Key Stage 2 starting point; an impressive figure that is significantly above the national average.
There were also many outstanding individual performances; eight students secured ten A*/A grades and a further 18 achieved eight or more GCSEs at A*/A.
Principal Trish Stringer said: ‘We are delighted with these achievements. Students in Year 11 have secured an impressive set of results and maintained the highest standards despite significant changes to specifications, the raising of GCSE standards and government announcements of turbulence in GCSE grades.
'Over 80% of students have shown higher than average progress in the core subjects and the percentage of those achieving five or more GCSEs, including English and mathematics, has risen by 12 percentage points this year.
'My sincerest congratulations go to all the students who have put in so much hard work to achieve these results. Special thanks go to all the staff at Brooke Weston whose daily dedication and relentless commitment has been pivotal to this success and finally to our parents who have been unstinting in supporting their children in achieving these excellent results.’
