St Mark’s Academy is once again celebrating another strong set of GCSE results. Our Year 11 pupils have achieved a record 37 grade 9s, which places them in the top 3% of students nationally in that subject.
Our provisional Progress 8 score is an impressive +0.3, which means that students at the Academy make a third of a grade more progress than students nationally from similar starting points.
We achieved especially strong results in:
English Literature – four students achieved a grade 9
History – three students achieved a grade 9
Spanish – nine students achieved a grade 9
RE – nine students achieved a grade 9
Many of our highest performing students will remain at St Mark’s to study for their A levels.
Pupil Premium students have made better than average progress at +0.05 and our students with English as an Additional Language have performed exceptionally well and have, on average, a progress score of +0.74.
Principal at St Mark’s Academy, Lisa Peterkin said:
“I’m so proud of our students and staff who have worked tirelessly to meet the challenge and rigour of these exams. Their results are a testament to our incredible body of staff, the supportive families in our community and, above all, our exceptionally dedicated and hardworking students.” She went on to say, “It’s a privilege to lead such a wonderful school that really is changing the life chances of the amazing young people we serve. These results are well deserved and I look forward to seeing just how far our young people will go.”
Our chair of Governors, Rachael Norman said, “St Mark’s are shaping character, instilling values and enriching lives as well as securing academic excellence for all.”
