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”.
