Students at All Saints Academy are celebrating a much improved set of results this year that reflect their determination, hard work and commitment as well as the dedication of the staff who have supported them throughout their GCSE journey.
Grades are up across the board, with highlights including clear improvements in English, Maths, and Science and optional subjects.
64% of students achieved grades 9-4 in English and Maths, up 7% from last year. 35% gained grades 9-5 in these two subjects also.
In English, 17% of students gained grades 9-7 with 54% securing 9-5, the new “strong pass” and 74% 9-4
In Maths, 14% of students gained grades 9-7 with 43% securing 9-5 and 74% 9-4.
There were 70 of the new very highest grades (grade 8 or 9) awarded across all subjects, with 9 of these grades awarded in Geography and also in Maths.
The top performing students were Rachel Archer and Elijah Allen, both of whom received 3 x grade 9s; 4 x grade 8s; 2 x grade 7s and 1 x grade 6. Other high performing students included Cordelia Foote, Jonathan Wilson, Stephon Thomas, Libby Hymas, Ella Easton, Alisha Parker and Jemeila Ricketts
Progress at the school is also clearly improved by +0.2 (one fifth of a grade) across all subjects.
On 1st June 2019, the school joined Ambitions Academies Trust, a successful Multi Academy Trust as part of its improvement journey. The new Principal, Mr John Cornish, said “On behalf of our outgoing Year 11 students, I am really pleased to see that the hard work has paid off and that they have achieved a very strong set of grades. These results are reflective of the positive changes that have already been made at the school. We would like to take this opportunity to wish all of our students every success for the future.”
