GCSE results 2017
Brook Learning Trust Students celebrate their GCSE results!
Students across Brook Learning Trust’s academies were celebrating today as they received the results of their GCSE’s.
At The Hayesbrook School, initial analysis indicates excellent achievements by many students and an increased performance in a wide range of measures and subjects. Figures show that 65% of students achieved or exceeded the new ‘standard pass’ (grade 4 and above) in both English and maths – the best results the academy’s history. GCSE English outcomes were the highest the academy has ever seen with 71% of students achieving a ‘standard pass’ and in maths, 75% of students achieved or exceeded a ‘standard pass’ - the highest results for three years.
Principal, Daniel Hatley said: ‘I am delighted to be able to congratulate so many boys on their considerable and well deserved achievements. This year’s results are a reflection of the dedication, commitment and sheer hard work of our brilliant students, fantastic staff and the excellent support of the families we work with.’
For the fourth year The Ebbsfleet Academy has shown what excellent teaching, high expectations and hard work can achieve as they celebrate 60% of pupils achieving a pass in both English and maths. Ebbsfleet pupils increased their success in both these subjects with 70% of pupils achieving a grade 4 or above in English and 68% in maths. In addition, 59% of pupils gained at least five GCSEs including English and maths, a notable increase on last year’s already good results.
The Ebbsfleet Academy is looking forward to welcoming back many of these students to their new sixth form, which opens in September.
Students at The High Weald Academy also enjoyed another year of positive GCSE results with successes including those students who were entered for the higher tier in maths, 100% of whom achieved their targets and 50% of whom exceeded expectations. In Additional Science 95% of students gained A*-C grades, a fantastic achievement and a testament to the hard work of students and staff.
Josh Llufrio-Elliott who achieved grade 8s in English and maths plus 3A*s, 2As and 2 Distinction*s was delighted with his results. “I feel incredible”, he said. “To get this from where I came from……. I really didn’t expect this and I’m so pleased!”
