Education: Secondary / Thu 22nd Aug 2019 at 12:12pm
AT Stewards Academy, the familiar buzz of excitement filled the school hall once again as pupils gathered to receive their GCSE results. There were lots of smiles and hugs as pupils opened their results and began to celebrate their success.
It was really pleasing to hear that the vast majority of pupils achieved the grades they needed to move onto the next stage of their educational journey.
Staff joined the pupils to congratulate them on their achievement and pupils were keen to thank their teachers for all the support they had given them over the five years.
Each cohort of pupils are unique in their own way, demonstrating different strengths; this year they saw particularly pleasing results (grades 4-9) from Photography (84%). Media (81%), Drama (92%) and RE (80%). As a Science Specialist school, it was also pleasing to see a continued strength in the single sciences: Physics (100%), Biology (96%) and Chemistry (89%). In the core subjects, around 20% of pupils achieved the highest grades (7-9), with English results remaining in line with previous years.
Head Boy, Bradley Rimell, one of their top performers achieved five grade 9s (including maths and science), three grade 8s and two grade 6s. Their top 10 performers achieved 61 of the highest grades between them.
Headteacher, Helen Ginger said: ‘I felt immense pride when I watched the pupils we have nurtured and challenged over the last five years celebrate their success. Our truly committed staff have worked so hard to develop these pupils into the delightful, successful and well-rounded young people they have become, and this is always an opportunity to reflect on why this job is all worthwhile’.
