'Supreme' GCSE results
Carlton le Willows Academy students are celebrating some "supreme" results for summer 2019 with 80% of students gaining five or more GCSEs at Grade 4 or above.
In total 64 % of Year 11s gained Grade 5 and above in English and maths alone. Results in the maths department were particularly strong with 39% of students getting Grade 7 or above (A/A*). Across all subjects 29% of students secured an A*/A equivalent.
Head teacher Mr Weaver said: "These results are simply supreme. To call them outstanding does not do them justice. Everyone knows these exams are far more rigorous than ever before and yet this year's students have delivered better than ever before.
"Ultimately it just goes to show that sustained commitment, focus and expertise alongside a clear focus on each individual child can yield incredible results. I know all these young people have shown such commitment and resilience, and they will inevitably take those skills forward into whatever path they may now choose."
Top performing Academy girl was Leah Rich with eight grade 9s, a grade 8 and an A* distinction in Further Maths. Top performing boy was Ben Fletcher who secured six grade 9s, two 8s, an A* distinction in Further Maths
Year 11 triplets Josh, Jak and Megan Kane all scored highly across the board with 10 grade 9s between them.
