Bosworth Academy students and staff are celebrating our best ever GCSE outcomes. Results are the highest the academy has ever seen across the board. Maths, English, Sciences, Humanities, Computing and Arts subjects are all considerably up on last year’s already strong scores.
Overall 76% of students gained the coveted 5+ A*-C including English and Maths. This will be considerably higher than the national average. In Maths 83% of students scored A*-C (compared to 70% nationally this year). In the even harder Additional Maths qualification 60% of students scored an A* or A grade. In English an amazing 88% of students scored A*-C compared to 71.3% nationally. Similarly, outstanding scores were seen in the Science where 98.2% scored A*-C in separate sciences compared to national averages of around 90%. There were similarly phenomenal performances in Humanities, the Arts, Computing, Languages, Media and our outstanding vocational subjects.
|Bosworth Academy 2016 GCSE Results Compared To National Results|
|Subject||Bosworth Academy % A*-C||National % A*-C||Bosworth Academy Difference|
|Art & Design||83||76||7|
|Science – Additional||73||59||14|
|Science – Core||69||48||21|
Most importantly we are a highly inclusive school and take students from a range of different educational backgrounds. This has not been a barrier to success with our students scoring around 5 grades better per student than the national expectation.
Chris Parkinson, Principal said: “We are utterly delighted with our students’ performance this year; an incredible number have made progress way beyond what they ever thought possible when they joined us two years ago. Our motto – ‘Be better than you thought you could be’ – has been accepted as a challenge by students and staff, and they have risen to that challenge. If you could give out Olympic medals for GCSE’s, I’d need far more than our successful GB team!”
