GCSE successes for Kingswood students!
Pupils at Kingswood Secondary Academy celebrate GCSE Success.
“As always it is too early to say definitively how the Academy has performed, but there are some very encouraging early indicators including some outstanding individual student performances. At this early stage it appears that the four highest performing students in the academy in terms of the progress they have made are all disadvantaged pupils, a group that nationally tend to underperform. Additionally we believe that our high prior attainment students have improved performance compared to last year, a group of students highlighted by Ofsted in our recent good inspection. There has been a 100% improvement in the proportion of students entered for the EBacc suite of subjects achieving strong passes. Girls in particular continue to perform well and seem to have achieved even better than last year, and our EAL students, for whom English is not their first language, continue to excel.
Individually the following student performances are particularly noteworthy:
- Leona Atkins: all grades 9 and 8, an exceptional achievement. Staying into the 6th Form to study sciences and English.
- Elizabeth Lasekan: grades 9, 8 and 7 including a Distinction. Going on to 6th Form to study sciences, English Literature and Psychology.
- Mateus Ferreira: grades 9, 8, 7 and a Distinction*, with progress likely to be 3 grades higher than national across all subjects. Going on to the 6th Form to study science, history and Portuguese.
- Alekss Jaunosans: grades 9, 8, 7 and A*, going on to the 6th Form to study science and maths.
- Priscilla Nakanwagi: grades 8, 7 and A*, with progress likely to be 3 grades higher than national across all subjects. Going on to the 6th Form to study science and maths.
- Artur Svetins has achieved Outstanding Progress and will go on to study a range of subjects including Art in the 6th Form.
- Sam Minta has achieved Outstanding Progress and will go on to study a range of subjects including sciences and psychology in the 6th Form.
It is a pleasure to see our young people work hard and succeed. We look forward to welcoming many of them back into our expanding 6th Form, and for those moving on we wish them the very best for the future”
