GCSE results hit an all-time high at Akeley Wood School
Following last week’s A-level success, Akeley Wood students are once again celebrating their outstanding GCSE results. In a cohort of over a hundred mixed-ability students in Year 11, 30% of all examinations taken were graded A*/A. In addition, over 92% of students achieved at least five A*-C grades, signifying an improvement on last year’s results for the fifth year running.
Amongst individual achievements, sincere congratulations go to Alfie Bones, Jessica Moll, Kyle Murrie, Jemima Penfold, Arthur Stacey, George Waring and Daniel Wilcockson, who each attained a full set of A*/A grades. Deserving of special mention is Ellen Roberts, who gained an undiluted concentrate of A* grades across the board.
Dr Jeremy Grundy, Headmaster of Akeley Wood School, commented: “We are absolutely thrilled with our results this year, not least by the number of students who have surpassed their Yellis predicated grades. This success is great testament to the students’ own hard work, coupled with the enormous support given by the teaching staff at Akeley Wood School. I am truly delighted for one and all!”
