Particular congratulations also go to the students who studied business studies BTEC, 100% of whom achieved Distinction* which shows exceptional progress.
Caroline Longhurst, Interim Principal commented: "I am delighted for our students who have worked so hard to achieve this well-deserved success. This could not have been accomplished without the support of parents/carers and the commitment and dedication of The High Weald Academy staff who have encouraged, supported and inspired our students to do their very best."
Over at The Hayesbrook School, staff were extremely proud of their 100% pass rate for the technical and applied vocational courses Business Studies, Creative Media, ICT and Sport Exercise Science meaning that all students passed all of their qualifications. Initial figures also indicate excellent achievements in the A Level courses, with 100% pass rates in Art, Design Technology and Geography.
As well as key individual successes, the overall grades indicate that 41% were A*, A or B grades and an impressive 34% of grades were A* or A. This includes the achievement of those studying applied and technical qualifications, where 92% of grades were Distinction*, Distinction or Merit and the average grading Distinction*, a highly commendable achievement.
