(News from Abbs Cross Academy)
Students jump for joy as top grades 8 and 9 are achieved!
We are extremely proud of the fantastic achievements of our Year 11 students in their GCSEs.
16% of students achieved a top grade of 8 or 9 in the new English and/or Mathematics GCSE. We are above national average for the new grades 7- 9 in English, Literature and Mathematics which is testament to the incredible hard work of the students and the dedication of their teachers.
We also achieved above National Average for A*-A grades in Biology, Physics, Business Studies, Drama, Music and PE.
It has been a difficult year in which to draw comparisons, but we are delighted that despite much more challenging GCSE content in English, Literature and Mathematics we have maintained our 5+ GCSE including English and Maths percentage from 2016. We have seen a rise in English with 88% of our students getting a grade 4-9 – a real success for Abbs Cross – well done Year 11!
