GCSE Success For Pupils At Weavers Academy

Pupils and staff at Weavers Academy were today celebrating some of the best GCSE results the school has seen. The school in Wellingborough, part of the Creative Education Trust, saw:


  • GCSE pass rates of almost 100% across all subjects (99.6%)
  • 68% of students achieved a new ‘standard pass’ of grade four or above in English
  • 62% of students achieved a new  ‘standard pass’ of grade four or above in Maths

This is the first year that pupils across England received their results using the new 9 – 1 grades with 9 being the highest grade. For the first year, the new grading system is only applicable to English language, English literature and mathematics. Other subjects will be phased in next year and the year after. The BBC have put together a guide for parents – http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/education-39490307

Vivien Swaida, Principal at Weavers Academy, said: “I am enormously proud of our students particularly when I see both their academic learning and their personal development flourishing. We are here to make sure that every young person who leaves us has real choices in life, whether sixth-form, an apprenticeship or into the workplace. I wish all of our pupils the best of luck for the future – I cannot wait to see what they go on to do next.”
