Congratulations To Our GCSE Students!
Students across our sponsored academies were celebrating GCSE results today.
Brighton Aldridge Community Academy celebrated its fourth consecutive year of improving GCSE results, with many key measures breaking Academy records. Mathematics results are at an all-time high while English saw remarkable success with 82% of students securing A*-C.
Principal Dylan Davies said "We are very proud of the individual success stories of our students; the English and maths improvements and the progress shown by our students really tell a story of the committed and hard-working students, teachers and staff at our Academy. This is a huge achievement and a significant stepping stone for the story of BACA's success over the last four years, well done everybody!"
On Portland Principal Alison Appleyard paid tribute to all involved at the Academy as it prepares to launch its new sixth form in September. "Congratulations to all the students who have done so well and to the staff who have worked so hard. We look forward to the new term with so many students coming back to join us in the new sixth form."
Darwen Academy Principal Brendan Loughran singled out students' achievements in maths: "We are delighted that 60% of our Year 11 students have gained at least five GCSEs graded at A*-C, including English and mathematics. As a new Mathematics hub, it is great to see 79% of our students gaining grades A*-C in mathematics and an 80% pass rate in the Additional Mathematics GCSE, laying solid foundations for students intending to study A Level maths in our Sixth Form."
And at Portslade, where GCSE results exceeded the national average in the key subjects of English and maths, Principal James Fox said "I am extremely proud of both our students and teaching staff who have worked hard this year to keep up the improvement in academic standards that we have made at the Academy".
Amongst many star performers across all of our sponsored schools was Portslade's Megan Woodford who achieved 6 A*s, 2 As and 1 B.
Congratulations to everybody!
