Students Celebrate Well-Deserved GCSE Results
Our Year 11 students are celebrating excellent GCSE results today – the fourth year of improvement in a row as the school continues to deliver an excellent teaching and learning programme matched by equally impressive pastoral care and support.
Akeley is a non-selective school and is proud that it offers an exceptional standard of education across all subjects enabling children to exceed their expectations. The level of ‘value’ a school adds to a students’ education is called the Value Added Score and Akeley’s VA score has increased for the fourth year in a row
Numerous students achieved straight 9 – 7 grades with Eve achieving straight 9s. Huge congratulations to her but equally well done to the many who have worked so hard during the GCSE courses whose grades truly reflect their ability and dedication.
Ms Carr, Head of School said: “We are very proud of how hard the students have worked for their GCSEs over the last three years, both whilst in school and when learning at home. These incredible results are a testimony to the commitment of pupils and teachers to maintain the highest standards of education and our commitment as a school to providing an uninterrupted education during the pandemic. We cannot wait to open AW6 in September and see the students continue to thrive and grow throughout their Sixth Form studies.”
