Staff and students at Stevenage’s Thomas Alleyne Academy are celebrating after recording the best GCSE results in the school’s history.
Just over half – 52 per cent – of students achieved five or more A*-C grades including English and maths.
Academy principal Mark Lewis said: “We are thrilled with the performance of our students and credit needs to go to all of them for their dedication and commitment to their work throughout their time at the academy. I should also like thank the support provided by parents and carers and the teaching staff for their expert knowledge and skills.
“These results confirm that we are a rapidly and consistently improving school. 52 per cent of our students achieved five or more A*-C grades including English and maths. This represents three years of continuing improvement at Thomas Alleyne’s with results rising from 37 per cent in 2011, 41 per cent in 2012 and 50 per cent in 2013.
“We are thrilled with the continued improvements we have made on last year’s results. Since our conversion to academy status, we have been able to establish innovative curriculum partnerships with our sponsors, North Hertfordshire College, and our partners in the Da Vinci Studio Schools. This will ensure that future cohorts can continue to build on this year’s examination success.”
Top performers include Aaron Marsh who achieved 11 A*-A grades, Jaimie Barnes and Jamie Cheke with 10 A*-A grades, and Faizah Begum with 11 grades at A*-C with 7 at A*-A.
Mpokiseng Mbedzi, Connor Searle, Emma Sherar and Alex Webb all gained 11 A*-C grades.
