Congratulations to our Year 11 students who received their GCSE and BTEC results today. Outstanding grades were achieved this year with 12.5% of all students achieving a minimum of 5 A*-A grades or equivalent and 6.5% of all students achieving 8 or more A*-A grades or equivalent.
58% of students achieved a standard pass of 4 or better in both english and maths, a considerable increase from 42% in 2016. Five grade 9s, the new top grade, were also achieved (1 in english and 4 in maths).
There were many fantastic individual performances, some worth noting include 14 students who achieved an A*-A grade in all areas of their core GCSE programme of study. Tara Blyth and Frankie Thomson each achieved a magnificent 11 A*-A grades. Jordan Elliot and Jade Waddle secured 10 A*-A grades, Sophie Bryce, Elise Elliot, Amelia Purdy, Lewis Shotton, Georgia Sobey and Courtney Stewart all recorded 9 A*-A grades. Finally, Luke Ammari, Alex McBride, Matthew McCormack and Jake Pickering received 8 A*-A grades. Well done to you all for your suberb efforts!
Our Year 11 students have been a pleasure to work with over the last three years and we are very proud of their efforts and successes. We would like to congratulate students, their families and our staff for their achievements this summer – 22 out of 25 of our GCSE and BTEC courses improved their outcomes from last year which is a huge positive for all involved.
Our best wishes go to those Year 11 students who are leaving us, we wish them luck as they move onto the next step of their education, employment or training. For those students choosing to come back and study in Post 16 at AHS next year, see you in September Year 12!
