Top grades Achieved at All Saints Academy

All Saints Academy is proud to announce another solid set of GCSE outcomes, with many outstanding success stories amongst the students’ achievements.

Year 11 students have maintained the overall outcomes and standards set by their predecessors, with half of the cohort achieving a standard Level 4 pass, and a fifth of the cohort achieving a strong Level 5 pass, in both English and maths. In light of the significant grade boundary changes that have affected the maths and science qualifications, this is a pleasing achievement and reflects the hard work of students and staff alike.

Our top performing student was Lauren Adkin achieving 11 GCSE grades 9-5 (A** – C equivalents): grade 9 in English, grade 8s in chemistry and religious studies, and grade 7s in maths, physics, history and finance.

Other notable achievements include: Oliwia Baginska, Kacper Markiewicz and Godswill Nnadi who all achieved grade 9s in Languages; Lauren Corr and Rebekah Shore who both achieved a grade 8 in English language; Chelsea Burden who achieved a grade 8 in English literature; and, Jenna Booth who achieved a Distinction* in health and social care.

Students should feel extremely proud of what they have achieved.

 

Principal, Liz Furber, commented, ‘I am extremely pleased that even with rising grade boundaries the students in Year 11 have managed to secure standard and strong grades in English and maths, providing them with a sound basis on which to continue their educational journey’

David Fraser, Chair of the Governing Body, added, ‘The Governors would like to add their congratulations to all students and staff who have achieved good results. As we consolidate on last year’s results, Governors are once again appreciative of the hard work the Principal and all her staff have undertaken through this vital period of our students’ educational journey.’

Andy O’Rourke, Assistant Principal Key Stage 4, added, ‘It is extremely pleasing to see so many students achieving what they deserve. This cohort has bought into the drive for excellence, they have been fully engaged and have taken on the challenge of aspiring towards the highest targets. I am very proud of their achievements and wish them all a bright and positive future’.

All Saints Academy continues to celebrate further improvements in ‘A’ Level and Vocational qualifications in the 2019 KS5 examinations. We are extremely pleased to share that at least ten students have received a university place for September.  Some of our students are also pursuing apprenticeships in a vocational setting, for example in the Health and Leisure setting. Our hope is that the positive example set by these students will serve as an inspiration to our students in Key Stage 4 showing that with hard work and determination, anything is possible.

 

Kyle Lynch achieved ‘A’ level grades of BBC and now plans to study journalism at university.  Amber James achieved an A grade in Psychology and D* D in BTEC Sport and has been offered a place at Nottingham University to study Nursing.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Simon Miller, the Assistant Principal for the Sixth Form, commented, ‘The results that have been achieved at KS5 are excellent and show that the Academy is moving in the right direction and achieving strong academic success.  This is an exciting time to be at the school and as the Sixth Form continues to grow and develop, we hope to have more students applying to the Sixth Form and raise aspirations for the whole school.’

 

Liz Furber, Principal, commented, ‘These great results are vindication of the hard work of students and staff.  They further reinforce the latest Ofsted judgement of Good for our 16-19 provision.  Well done all!’

All Saints Academy is celebrating its best ever GCSE results with greater numbers achieving strong passes in English and maths. Across all subjects the cohort has made consistently strong progress.

Two students achieved 11 GCSEs grades 9-5  (A**-C equivalents) one of those being Zoe  (below) whose results included 4 grade 8s (4 A*s).

Eight students achieved 10 GCSEs grades 9-5 including those shown below: Jake, Hannah  and Yassmina, joined by Liam and Georgia who achieved 9 grade 9-5 GCSEs.

 

 

Principal, Liz Furber, commented, ‘The students have engaged fully this year with all the intervention strategies put in place and their success is therefore well-deserved.  Attainment (Attainment 8) has improved across the board even though the new style GCSEs are perceived as being much more robust.’

David Fraser Chair of the Governing Body, added, ‘The Governors would like to add their congratulations to all students and staff who have achieved such fantastic results. As we consolidate on last year’s results, and continue to make significant progress, Governors are once again indebted to the Principal and all her staff who have worked with focus and determination to support students through this vital period in their education journey.’

Andy O’Rourke, Assistant Principal – Key Stage 4, added, ‘I am thrilled that so many of our students have met or exceeded their respective targets. The levels of diligence and hard-work that we have seen from this cohort throughout the year, makes the overall result even more satisfying’.

A level Results 2018

All Saints Academy continues to celebrate its improvement in ‘A’ Level and Vocational qualifications in the 2018 KS5 examinations, with the average point scores per entry continuing to rise. We are extremely pleased to share that fourteen students have received a university place for September.  Some of our students are now pursuing apprenticeships in a vocational setting instead, for example in the Fire Service and midwifery. Our hope is that the positive example set by these students will serve as an inspiration to our students in Key Stage 4 showing that with hard work and determination, anything is possible.

 

Kaitlin achieved 3 A* at A level which is an absolutely huge achievement and now plans to go on to study Psychology.  Special mentions also go to Taylor (Distinction*, Distinction*, C), Aidan (A, B, Merit), Roberto (A, Merit, D), Sapna (A, C, E) and  Alisha (B, D, D).  Declan, Tia and Robbie all achieved outstanding BTEC results and as a result Declan and Tia have also secured places at university.

 

 

Simon Miller, the new Assistant Principal for the Sixth Form, commented, ‘The results that have been achieved at KS5 are excellent and show that the Academy is moving in the right direction and achieving strong academic success.  This is an exciting time to be at the school and as the sixth form continues to grow and develop, we hope to have more students applying to the sixth form and raise aspirations for the whole school.

 

 

Liz Furber, Principal, commented, ‘This is a pivotal moment for the Academy Sixth Form as a huge improvement in teaching and learning over the last two years has led to improved academic success.  This year we have seen grades ranging from A* to E, with an average of a C grade achieved overall.  This means staying at the Academy for continued academic success has become an aspirational route.’

‘The students have worked harder than ever and have been striving for the most challenging of grades. Staff have inspired these students over the last two years and encouraged them to aspire highly and to be the best they can be. In particular Kaitlin, as our top performer, has played a huge role within the school through her commitment to student voice.  Aidan has also been a great role model to the younger students by his support of the Academy functions using his media skills.’

 

 

The Chair of Governors, David Fraser, added ‘We are very proud of all of our students and their achievements and wish them well as they embark on the next stage of their lives.  We look forward to welcoming our new Year 7 intake in September as they embark on their education journey at All Saints Academy.’
