GCSE Results 2016 - Fantastic News


Guilsborough Academy is delighted with their students’ GCSE results this year. The year group worked really hard and were supported wonderfully by the
excellent staff and very supportive parents/carers to achieve their brilliant
results. With 76% of students achieving A*- C in both English and Maths, and over a fifth of them achieving 5 A*/A grades, this has enabled them to go onto a wide variety of courses/apprenticeships. Particularly pleasing was the achievements in English and Mathematics with 81% and 80% respectively achieving a C grade or above. These results are particularly impressive when considering the changing national picture.

New Principal, Mrs Swales said, “We are very proud of our students, not only because they did so well in their GCSE qualifications, but also because of the hard work, commitment and resilience they showed during their time studying. They also showed a true team spirit, supporting each other to achieve their best”.

“Whilst many of our students achieved at least 10 A*/A grades, which is amazing, we also had many others that made outstanding progress in a variety of subject areas. We wish them all the best for the future and look forward to working with them in the 6th form to go on to continue their success”.

A Level Results 2016

The new Principal of Guilsborough Academy, Mrs Swales, said she was delighted with the A level results students achieved. There have been many fantastic, well deserved achievements for our hard working,
talented students. Several of our students have gained straight A*/A grades, which is absolutely fantastic. However, there have also been many other success stories, with students gaining the grades to go
onto a wide range of universities or high quality apprenticeships.
As a school we have again achieved wonderful results with an overall pass rate of 99 % and 46% of grades at A and B grade. Whilst this is a credit to our students, praise also needs to go to our excellent staff and supportive parents/carers.

Mrs Swales, also said: “We are delighted with the achievements of our students and wish them continued success in their future careers. As a year group they have worked extremely hard, but also understood the importance of their roles as leaders in the school. We would like to thank them for being such an inspirational year group to our younger students.”
Well done Year 13.
