Congratulations to all our Year 11 leavers who worked incredibly hard to achieve a fabulous set of results. Their superb achievements are well deserved and the young people are right to feel extremely proud of themselves. The academy is delighted that this means that so many of its pupils will now be able to take up their chosen post 16 pathways and go on to succeed still further.
Overall school headline figures place the academy above national averages and reflect a continuing trend of improvement. 66% of all pupils achieved 5 GCSEs A*-C including English and Maths- this is an increase of 8% points from last year. Over one third of all pupils achieved the gold star standard of the EBacc and just under one third of all grades were either A* or A. The academy also scored a very positive Progress8 score which is the new performance measure for schools from 2015/16.
More than 70% of pupils achieved A*-C grades in English and in Maths and the progress made in these subjects was above the national averages of last year. We are delighted that so many pupils achieved so highly given the increasing rigour and challenge required to achieve this high standard in literacy and numeracy. Nationally there has been a huge emphasis placed upon developing these key skills and we are extremely proud of our pupils’ success.
There are always stories of individuals who have excelled and it is simply outstanding that:
There are also many reasons to celebrate the achievement of particular pupils who have overcome adversity to achieve highly. In particular one pupil in year 11 has achieved one A, three Bs and 4 C grades despite seeing coursework and revision notes lost in a family house fire just before Christmas.
Professor Toby Salt, CEO of Ormiston Academies Trust said: “It is our absolute priority as a Trust to ensure every student fulfils their potential and we are delighted to congratulate Tenbury High Ormiston Academy students on their excellent results today.”
