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!’

Continuing Improvement at All Saints Academy

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.’

Academy Achieves Best GCSE Results in 5 years!

All Saints Academy is celebrating its best GCSE results in 5 years with 42% of students achieving 5 A*-C grades including English Language and maths. This is an 18% increase on last summer’s results and the best since 2012, during what has been a challenging 5-year period for the school.

The new measure of English and maths has improved by 9% this year to 44%, with 29% of the whole Year 11 cohort achieving 8A*-C grades or more.

Ten students achieved 11A*-C grades with a special mention to top performers: Megan Adams (2A*s, 5As, 3Bs, 1C) – with her mother below, Minthaki Jayakody – shown below – (1A*, 4As, 4Bs, 2Cs), Amber James (3A*s, 4As, 2Bs, 2Cs) and Pavan Asodia – shown below – (1A*, 3As, 4Bs and 3Cs).

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Nine students achieved 10 A*-C grades and a further 10 students achieved 8 or 9 A*-C grades.

Principal, Liz Furber, commented, ‘The students have worked incredibly diligently this year and strived for the best results. It has been a year of many changes nationally, such as the introduction of the 1-9 grading and new-style exams in English and Maths, where coursework can no longer be relied upon.’

‘There has been an amazing improvement in the last 12 months; students and their parents should be very proud. I would like to add my thanks to the staff here at All Saints, who are firmly committed to securing the best outcomes for our students and have worked tirelessly. The turn-around in results is due to everyone being student focused, from the dedicated staff and our committed Governing Body, through to our sponsors, the Diocese of St Albans and the University of Bedfordshire. Next year we will be aiming even higher!’

Shirley Hollis, Chair of the Outcomes Committee, added, ‘The Governing Body would like to add their congratulations to all students and staff who have achieved such fantastic results. This is due to the incredibly hard work and dedication of all involved.’

All Saints Academy is celebrating a sustained improvement in ‘A’ Level and Vocational qualifications in the 2017 KS5 examinations, with the average point scores per entry continuing to rise. We are extremely pleased to share that twenty two students have received a university place for September and one student has already left to attend university in America. Many of the students who chose not to apply for university are now pursuing apprenticeships to continue their education in a vocational setting instead. We hope this inspires students currently in Key Stage 4 to work their hardest and continue in the Academy Sixth Form with the knowledge that they will be fully supported to achieve their future career and educational ambitions.

Special mentions go to Cameron Hawthorne, Rebekah James and Olga Pazvakambwa who achieved the equivalent of 5 ‘A’ Levels each; Media- C, Sport Extended Diploma – D*D*D*, Hospitality Sub Diploma  – A for Cameron; Health and Social care – D*D*, Sport Extended Diploma – D*D* D* for Rebekah; Applied Science Diploma – DD and Sport Extended Diploma – D*D*D* for Olga seen below.

Head Boy and Head Girl, Jason Lee and Shannon Stack, below, achieved highly in the Travel extended Diploma – D*D*D* and the Business Extended Diploma D*D*D* respectively. Shannon also gained an A* in her EPQ and is off to Southampton to study Business Management.

 

 

Liz Furber, Principal, commented, ‘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 Jason and Shannon have taken on many extra duties in their roles as Head Boy and Head Girl and have been wonderful role models for the younger students. 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 educational journey.’
