Students and staff at Weavers Academy are celebrating another year of continuing improvement leading to even greater success.

This year pupils across England received their results using the new 9 – 1 grades in most subjects with 9 being the highest grade. 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. The BBC have put together a guide for parents –

We are delighted that:

  • GCSE pass rates of almost 100% across all subjects
  • Two thirds of students achieved 5 standard passes including English and mathematics
  • 76% of students achieved a ‘standard pass’ of grade four or above in English and at least 64% of students achieved a ‘standard pass’ of grade four or above in maths
  • 51% of students achieved a “strong pass” of grade 5 or better in English and 40% of students achieved a “strong pass” in mathematics

As well as strong overall results, almost half of the students entered for the English Baccalaureate at the end of KS4 achieved a standard pass.

Behind the examination statistics are some amazing individual success stories. Amongst the many happy and excited students are

  • Daniel Johnstone, 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.

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


Creative Education Trust Director of Education Phillip Cantwell said:

“Students and their teachers deserve congratulations for achieving such positive results at a time of immense uncertainty. These results are a testament to the hard work of a terrific group of students.”


Weaver’s Principal Vivien Swaida said:

“Weavers is continuing to build on its continuing record to secure strong examination outcomes and this year has been no exception. We are delighted that the hard work of our staff and students has paid off so spectacularly.

Many of our students will be re-joining us in the Sixth Form in the weeks ahead and we look forward to continuing to support them through their A-Level programmes. Others will leave to pursue other courses and opportunities and they do so with our best wishes and our thanks for their contribution to the school over the last five years.”
