Results in English, mathematics and science were the school’s best ever with 74% of students achieving at least a grade four in English, 64% in mathematics and 66% in Science. Numbers of students achieving a strong pass or better has risen again with almost half of students securing a Grade 5 or better in English or mathematics. Outcomes in history, French, Spanish, art, drama and all three sciences were strong.

A special mention must be made of the outstanding performances of some students who gained some amazing GCSE qualifications.

Behind the examination statistics are some amazing individual successes. Greta Bojarovisiute was most happy as she achieved 5 grade 9s and 3 grade 8s.

Alihaydar Demir was all smiles with 3 grade 9s and 5 grade 8s and Arpana Kumari shed tears of joy as she achieved a grade 9, 3 grade 8s, 3 grade 7s and one grade 6!

Successes was enjoyed by Harvey Litchfield who achieved strong passes in all subjects including 3 grade 9s. Karolina Gonek achieved a grade 7 or better in 6 of her subjects and Oscar Clarke achieved nothing less than a grade 7 in his all of his examinations.

Vivien Swaida, the Principal at Weavers Academy, said:

“I am immensely proud of Year 11 students and congratulate them on their determination, commitment and dedication, especially in their final year, which have produced some awesome success stories.

I would also like to thank the parents and carers of our Year 11 students who have played the most important role in this success, for the support they have given to their children and to the school throughout the 5 year journey. They will be rightly proud of the achievements of their sons and daughters.

On behalf of the governing body and all staff at the school, I wish our Year 11 students every success for the future”.
