Students at Axe Valley Academy are celebrating a fantastic set of GCSE results this week. In a year in which there has been a great deal of change nationally to the GCSE system, the young people at Axe Valley can be truly proud of their achievements. 68% of the cohort achieved the new 4+ pass in English and 65% achieved the same grade in mathematics. Whilst it is impossible to compare this year’s results with last year’s, it is important to celebrate the achievements of students at all levels and to recognise those who have made exceptional progress over the course of their secondary education. Some of the notable GCSE performances include:
Henrijs Hofrats (8, 7, 5, A*, A*, A, A, B, C, Dist*), Chris Thomas (8, 8, 6, A*, A, A, A, A, B, B, Merit), Madison White (8, 7, 7, A*, A, A, A, A, B, Dist*), Layla James (8, 6, 4, A*, A*, A*, A, A, B, Dist), Luke Young (7, 7, 7, A*, A*, A, B, B, Dist*, Dist).
Particular congratulations should also go to the students who made the most progress since joining Axe Valley in year 7. These include Imogen Payne, Sophie Ellis, Maya Coman, Victoria Storey and Kobi Burrough.
Headteacher, Steve Green said, ‘The students at Axe Valley have worked so hard for their GCSEs this year. They have been ably supported by a committed team of staff and everyone associated with the academy deserves recognition for what they have achieved. I have been delighted by the way in which the whole school community has worked together to get the very best out of everyone.’
