GCSE Results Day 2018

Akeley Wood School students celebrate GCSE achievements

Students at Akeley Wood School are celebrating excellent GCSE results today,

with more than a third of grades exceeding 7+ or A**/A compared to 20% nationally.

96% of grades are at the new grade 4+ or above compared to 66.9% nationwide and 15% of students secured at least one of the new top grade 9s – with many achieving straight 8/9 grades.

We are particularly delighted with the overall number of grade 6+ – more than half – across a range of subjects, the majority of which are the new reformed, more exacting qualifications. Examinations in these subjects are taken at the end of KS4 with very little or no coursework and relying completely on the performance of the student on the day.

Simon Antwis, Headteacher said, “It is a pleasure to celebrate with our staff and students who have worked so hard to achieve these results. My congratulations go to all of our GCSE students and I wish them every success as they take their next steps into A Levels and beyond. I am delighted that the majority of these exceptional students will be back with us in the Sixth Form next month and we have high hopes for their A level results in two years’ time!”
