EXCELLENT FIRST EVER GCSE RESULTS FOR BOLINGBROKE ACADEMY!
GCSE RESULTS DAY 2017
Thursday 24th August saw our Year 11 pupils celebrate their GCSE results, the first ever since the Academy opened in 2012.
The number of pupils achieving the new benchmark score of 4 or better in English and Maths GCSE (equivalent to a C) is 82%.
The school also did well with the recently introduced measure Progress 8 with an estimated score of 0.3, well above the national average of 0. This score reflects progress made by each pupil in the same eight subjects from Year 7 to Year 11. For Attainment 8, which measures attainment, students achieved a score of 5, which also surpasses the national average.
The percentage of pupils awarded a 9 - the highest grade in the new system – in Maths and English was 4%; above the 3% that the government said would be awarded across the country.
In the core subjects of Maths and English, over a quarter of pupils acheived 7+ which is an outstanding result. In English Literature 26%, English Language 27% and Maths 28%. Pupils also excelled across other subject areas with an impressive number of pupils acheiving A and A*. In the Sciences those acheiving A and A* were; Biology (74%), Chemistry (40%) and Physics (56%), and in Modern Foreign Languages; French (62%), German (28%) and Spanish (52%). We are thrilled to report that pupils who studied Latin and took the paper a year early acheived a 100% A and A* grade. Lastly, in Music, 44% of pupils acheived an A or A*.
Bolingbroke Academy Principal Claire Edis said: “I am extremely proud of all the pupils whose hard work and commitment has really paid off. We have surpassed national averages and excelled in our local area with a very high benchmark score in English and Maths. We are thrilled that we have helped our pupils to secure fantastic results which are testament to the strong positive attitude of the pupils, high quality of teaching staff and strong relationships with pupils and their families. Such good results present a wide array of opportunities for their future and we look forward to welcoming many pupils back for the Sixth Form in September.”
WELL DONE to all of our pupils who have acheived amazing results; we could not be more proud of you.
