Congratulations to all our Year 11 students in what has been a challenging and quite extraordinary Key Stage 4 experience. We are delighted with the resilience, fortitude, and perseverance that they have displayed during what have been one of the most challenging periods in education within living memory.
Although our students did not sit public examinations this summer, the results that they have received are, we believe, an accurate reflection of what they deserved. These results are the outcome of a detailed and rigorous process which has taken into account their performance in the assessment period which took place during Module 5 (April – May). Overall, these results reflect the position of the school which is one of continuous improvement on our way to becoming the first-choice secondary school for our local community.
The academy has enjoyed a significant increase in grades awarded at 7 and above, as well as substantial increases in the number of students achieving strong and standard passes in both English and maths.
We were delighted to welcome many of our students back into the academy today and to see lots of very happy faces as they collected their results! We wish all our former year 11 students the very best for the future and can’t wait to welcome many of them back in September as they embark on the next exciting phase of their educational journey at Arden sixth form. This was truly an exceptional year group in what has been an extraordinary year!
There are many individual success stories which include:
Shinead: Biology GCSE – 9; Chemistry GCSE – 9; English Language GCSE – 7; English Literature GCSE – 7; History GCSE – 9; Mathematics GCSE – 9; Physics GCSE – 9; R.E GCSE – 8; Sociology GCSE – 9; Spanish GCSE – 9
We are extremely proud of all our Year 11 students. It has been a pleasure to watch them grow, we are delighted that we are able to share such an excellent set of results with them today. We would also like to thank all our staff for their dedication and diligence in ensuring that students were awarded grades that truly reflected their abilities and potential, also the outstanding support that they continued to provide throughout the most recent lockdown period.
Congratulations to all our Year 11 students who received their results today. It was wonderful to see so many at the academy today and we wish them all the very best for the future! We’re looking forward to welcoming so many back to Arden sixth form in September.
