Weavers Academy wishes to congratulate students on a very strong and pleasing set of GCSE results. Another year of GCSE success!

Students across England continued to receive their results using the new 9 – 1 grades in the majority of 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:

  • Almost two thirds of students achieved a pass in five GCSEs including English and mathematics at grade 4 or better.
  • Results in English, maths and science were the school’s best ever with
  • 74% of students achieving at least a grade four in English,
  • 64% of students achieving at least a grade four in maths and
  • 66% of students achieving at least a grade four in science.
  • Numbers of students achieving a strong pass or better have risen again with almost half of students securing a Grade 5 or better in English or maths.
  • Outcomes in history, French, Spanish, art, drama and all three sciences were strong.

Behind the examination statistics are some amazing individual successes. A special mention must be made of the outstanding performances of eight of our students who gained 8 GCSE qualifications exceeding grade 7.

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

Successes was enjoyed by Harvey Litchfield who achieved strong passes in all subjects including 3 grade 9’s. 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 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 excellent examination results this year. Students were thoroughly prepared for the challenge of the examinations thanks to the commitment and professionalism of our staff.

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 to these examination results. 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”.
