Delighted staff and students celebrated another impressive set of GCSE results at The Vale Academy.

Principal Nicola Williams said results in English were particularly ‘outstanding' with 86% of students achieving a grade 4+ and 63% grade 5+.

A total of 67% of students achieved a ‘standard’ 4+ pass - the equivalent of the old grade C - in English and Maths.  46% achieved a ‘strong’ 5+ pass in the two subjects combined.

 “I am absolutely delighted with our results overall, in particular with the way students have approached the new, more challenging, GCSEs in English and Maths,” Mrs Williams said.

“I am also really pleased to see a number of students achieve the new top grade 9 in both subjects.

“We have had consistently high results for a number of years now.

“The results across all subjects are testament to the hard work and dedication shown by both staff and students. I am proud of them all.”
