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 a large number of the reformed Grade 9 – 1 GCSEs for the first time. 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 of little value.
However, we are delighted to report that 60% of students achieved grades of 9 – 4 in both English and Maths and 35% of students achieved 9 – 5 grades on both subjects.
It was pleasing to see an increase in the number of students achieving the highest grades in many subjects, particularly Mathematics, with 48% achieving grades of 9 – 5.
The Academy is delighted to see a continued improvement in the pass rate for a number of subjects particularly Biology, Chemistry, Physics, Combined Science, Computer Science, History, Geography, German, French, ICT, Textiles, Dance and Drama.
Particular mention should go to;
- James Tarbin who achieved grade 9 in Maths, Biology, Chemistry and Physics plus grade 8 in German and Sports Studies
- James Hamman who achieved 1x9 (History), 3x8, 3x7, 1x5 and 1xA*
- Charlotte Roche who achieved 1x9 (History), 1x8, 3x7 and 4x6
- Jarad Gribben who achieved 1x9 (Maths), 4x7, 1x6, 1x5, and 2xA
- Josh Lingley who achieved the highest progress score of the cohort with 1x8, 2x7, 2x6, 3x5 and 1xC
“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. Many students rose to the challenge of the reformed GCSEs and met or exceeded their target grades. 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.”
Mr R James - Headteacher
