We are delighted to share the outcomes of our 2021 Academy GCSE examinations.

Students have worked exceptionally hard towards these examinations and should feel proud of their achievements.

These results cannot be held in comparison to any other year group due to a change in how the assessments in 2021 were conducted nationally. Our Year 11 students have overcome 18 months of disruption to their learning with multiple school closures. Despite all of this, they have achieved some fantastic results. These results are testament to the hard work of students and their teachers who have worked tirelessly over the past two years.

- Grade distribution shows a significant increase in the higher grades in 2021
- 72 grade 9s were achieved
- Students achieved higher grades (9 – 7) in 17% of all examinations
- 48.4% of students achieved 9-4 in English and Maths
- 75.5% of students achieved 9-4 in English
- 54.3% of students achieved 9-4 in Maths

Mr McBeath, Principal, praised both students and staff for their hard work and effort.

“I would like to congratulate our Year 11 students on their fantastic achievement this year. Their hard work, commitment and effort has resulted in an exceptional set of GCSE results. This cohort have shown a level of commitment and resilience that will prepare them well for Sixth Form, further education or a vocation of their choice.

Through the exceptional commitment of our teachers, we managed to deliver a full timetable through online learning which maintained the levels of education and study our students needed.

Today, the students and staff should celebrate. We are exceptionally proud of everything they have achieved.”

Many students have achieved results of which they should be exceptionally proud.  Some of the highest attaining students include:

- Daniyaal Dar - 7 grade 9s (81 Pts)
- Beth Oliver - 5 grade 9s - joint highest points in the year group (83 Pts)
- Rosie Caldwell - 5 grade 9s (82 Pts)
