2017 GCSE Results
Building on the success and continued improvement of recent years the quality of results have been maintained in a summer examination season which has seen students sitting the new Grade 9 – 1 GCSEs for the first time in Maths and English. Staff and students worked hard to prepare for examinations that no one had seen or previously taken.
The new examinations are more challenging and rigorous containing different content and examination style questions. As a result, a direct comparison with results from previous years is meaningless.
However, we are delighted to report that 60% of students achieved grades of 9 – 4 in both English and Maths and 64% of students achieved at least 5 A* - C passes. It was also pleasing to see an increase in the number of student achieving the highest grades.
A number of subjects received excellent results particularly Biology, Chemistry, Physics, Computer Science, Textiles, Dance, Physical Education, and Health & Social Care.
Particular mention should go to;
- Chloe Phillips-Taylor who achieved grade 9 in both English and Maths, 3 A’s in Biology Chemistry and Physics plus 1x7, 1C.
- Poppy Yeomans who achieved 1x9, 1x8, 1x7, 2A*, 3A’s & 1B.
- Phoebe Bruce who achieved 2x8, 1A*, 5A’s, 1B and 1x6
Rob James, Headteacher, commented;
“We are delighted the hard work of the students has produced excellent results which will allow them to progress to the next stage of their education or employment. On behalf of the students, I would like to thank the staff and parents for their support.
The results show that as a school we provide an all-round education, with a range of opportunities for all students, whatever their ability level and interest. The continued improvements at the Ramsey Academy are contributing to our aim of becoming an outstanding school in the heart of the community and first choice for local families.
We wish all the students good luck and best wishes for the future.”
