GCSE Exam Results 2018

This has been another incredibly successful year for Weavers GCSE students!

Another year of continuing improvement leading to even greater success this year at Weavers Academy.

Under the new examination regime, Grade 4 is considered to be equivalent to the old Grade C and Grade 7 is viewed as the equivalent of the old Grade A. With this in mind, we are delighted that 71% of our students achieved Grade 4 or higher in English and 62% in Maths. Almost two thirds of our students achieved a pass in five GCSEs including English and Maths at Grade 4 or better. This success has been replicated right across the curriculum. This places our GCSE results this year in line with our best ever outcomes.

We are incredibly proud of the hard work that was done by so many of our students, many of whom have made remarkable progress since joining us in Year 7.

Behind the examination statistics are some amazing individual success stories. Amongst the many happy and excited students are Daniel Johnston, who achieved a grade 9, 3 grade 8’s, 2 grade 7’s, one grade 6 and a distinction* and Max Campbell, who achieved 3 grade 9’s, 2 grade 8’s, 1 grade 7, 2 grade 6’s and a *distinction.

Albana Kapllanaj received 1 grade 9, 1 grade 8, 2 grade 7’s, 2 grade 6’s and a distinction*. Alice Jaeger secured 1 grade 9, 2 grade 8’s, 3 grade 7’s and 2 grade 6’s.

Creative Education Trust Director of Education Phillip Cantwell said:
““We are incredibly pleased with how our students have performed this year in their GCSE examinations. With the introduction of new linear courses and a new grading system, there has been a lot to contend with for students, teachers and parents. Our students have certainly risen to the challenge and have performed very well indeed”.

Vivien Swaida, Principal at Weavers Academy, said:
“I am enormously proud of our students and their success this year. These fantastic results are a reflection of the hard work and resilience of our students and our dedicated team of teachers and support professionals who together really do strive to achieve the school’s ambition of excellence for all. We also fully appreciate and recognise the support that parents have provided during their children’s time with us; it is this partnership between home and school that is the foundation for our success”.

Post-16 Update

Weavers Academy: Securing aspirations


Students and staff at Weavers Academy are celebrating another successful year of post-16 examination results as they announce an overall pass rate of 95 percent at A-Level and one in five of exams taken achieving a grade B or higher.


Outcomes in vocational courses remained strong. Our students performed exceptionally well with 80 per cent achieving either a distinction*, distinction or merit in their chosen subjects.


The two top performing students studied nine A Levels in total achieving eight A/A* grades between them. They will go on to study natural sciences at Exeter and economics at Warwick universities. This is a tremendous achievement and many other students achieved exceptional individual results.


Almost 85 per cent of our students this year are going on to university with the remainder opting for apprenticeships or exciting job opportunities.


One student was bowled over as she realised her ambition to follow her lifelong interest and study Zoology. Another student said they were “thrilled to be going on to study a course in Children and Youth Education”. The excitement of others was evident as they talked of their futures at universities of their choice studying computing, economics, equine studies, mathematics and natural sciences amongst many other degree courses.


Principal, Viv Swaida said: “Weavers prides itself on supporting students’ learning to help them to reach their potential, achieve their aspirations and secure their future success. The hard work and dedication of all has resulted in another great set of results for students at Weavers Academy. We wish students every success in the future”.
