GCSE Results: Students results at Somercotes Academy deliver once again

25 August 2017

Headmaster Simon Corns said the results were an improvement on previous year.

The Gateway Learning Community Trust's CEO, Mr Kevin Sadler, added "Grainne and her team have created something really special at Gateway; not only are results improving significantly, but the ethos is just wonderful".

"With these national changes, year-on-year comparisons of attainment are not appropriate and headline progress measures will be unavailable until the official performance tables are released".

Also, of the five Year 9 pupils who sat the entry level computing paper by way of preparation, two achieved Grade 3, the highest grade available.

"Considering that the exams are harder now we are so proud of the students and the way the teachers have worked with them to prepare for the exams".

Pleckgate Head Teacher Mark Cocker tells why he thinks more of his pupils have done better under the new system.

Ellie Young, 16, managed to get two 6 grades, one 7, two As and two Bs and will be going on to study Physics, Maths and French at Southmoor, which has a link-up with Sandhill.

Andrew Locke, another salon employee, said the situation was "nerve-wracking", especially in trying to take care of customers. Mayor John Tecklenburg emphasized to reporters during a news conference that: "This is not act of terrorism".

The scene as students collected their exam results was a mixture of nerves and trepidation, but ultimately one of pure joy as years of endeavour paid off.

Isaac Woods was among the top performing students at the Angmering School, receiving a 9 in maths as well as seven A*s and three As. The Government is clear that a "standard pass" is a creditable achievement but does expect to see the percentage of pupils achieving a grade 5 "strong pass" to increase over time.

She said: "I got three A*s, a grade 7 in English Lit and a grade 9 in English Language".

I was really nervous overall.

"These are great results for adult learners across North Yorkshire, who should be congratulated for all their hard work", said County Councillor Patrick Mulligan, Executive Member for Education and Skills.

Next year more subjects will be incorporated into the new system and by 2020 all subjects will be numerically graded.

"It is always hard to refer to specific results and individual students but the incredible amount of A*-A grades achieved by the year group as well as 19 subjects securing a 100 per cent pass rate would be the most satisfying".
