Students and staff at Brooke Weston Academy are celebrating another year of outstanding GCSE examination results. This year 85% of Year 11 students secured grades 9 to 4 in English, 85% in Mathematics and 91% in Science. The new ‘strong pass’ or grade 5 also saw impressive outcomes with 73% in English, 69% in Mathematics and 82% in Science. 32% of all grades were awarded A*/A, or the new equivalent 9 to 7 measure, and over 8% achieved the new ‘A**’ grade 9 with 126 grades awarded across all subjects.
This pattern of exceptional performance has continued in a time of significant reform to the current GCSE system and we are proud of the hard work and resilience that our students have demonstrated
Whilst we are very proud of the achievements of all our students, within these results there have been exceptional individual performances that deserve particular mention. Amongst our highest performing students this year were Emily Brown, Rajan Khunti, Ella Brereton and Abbie Wallace with nine A*/9/8 grades each. Kirndeep Dhassi, Angela Oljaca and Oliver Steel also performed exceptionally well with 29 A*/9/8 grades between them.
Principal, Pete Kirkbride, said: ‘Once again I am completely delighted with the Brooke Weston Academy results and it gives me huge pleasure to congratulate all of our students on their fantastic achievements. The success of our students is a testament to their determination, especially with the more challenging reformed GCSEs. I remain tremendously proud that we continue the mission to ensure that every student, regardless of their starting point when they arrive at Brooke Weston Academy, maximises every opportunity to make exceptional progress. I would like to take this opportunity to thank all staff and parents for their relentless support. I feel privileged to be part of such an inspiring school community.’
