Staff and students at Wrenn Academy are celebrating the significantly improved GCSE exam results seen this year.
In a year of volatility where the standards in the new English and Maths exams have been deliberately been made tougher by OFQUAL, Wrenn students can be incredibly proud of their GCSE exam results.
Collectively as a staff we are celebrating the achievements of all of our students at all levels. Wrenn Academy has seen an 11% improvement in standards in English and Maths – a remarkable increase in light of the new examination changes. The academy has also seen notable improvements in students achieving the higher grades including the new exceptional grade 9. Six students achieved a grade 9 in maths and three in English – phenomenal! The Academy also saw a significant rise in the overall progress of students compared to last year.
Individual successes were many but highlights included Dev Mistry, Jasmine Harris, Shivam Mistry, Joe Anderson and Rebecca Freeman who achieved 51 A* and A GCSE grades between them. All of these five students also achieved at least one grade 9 as well.
Jonathan Hunt, the Director of Upper School commented “On behalf of the Academy I want to congratulate all of our Year 11 students. To produce these results in the face of all of the national changes is a superb achievement. We welcome back many of them who will be continuing their studies into our Sixth Form, and I also wish all of our other leavers well with the next stage of their studies and careers.”
