In 2017, 65% of students achieved the Government’s new headline measure in both English and maths, despite this being the first year of the new tougher exams.
Overall, more than 65% of students achieved Grade 4 or above in both English and maths – with a 4 the new grade set by the Government as a pass, equivalent to the old grade C.
In English 82% of pupils achieved Grades 4 or above. This is up 5% on the equivalent proportion last year, when the old Grade C was still in place.
Over 42% of students also achieved a Grade 5 or above in both subjects – defined by the Government as a “strong pass” or better – a fantastic achievement.
A third of grades awarded in the core subjects of English and maths were also grades 6 and above. This clearly demonstrates the positive impact that the high standards and expectations the Academy sets for students, and the high level of challenge has on attainment, helping students achieve these high standards in literacy and numeracy.
The Academy’s results reflect a continuing trend of excellence at Tenbury High, under the sponsorship of Ormiston Academies Trust (OAT), and the pupils, parents and staff should feel proud of their many successes.
Tenbury High’s student leaders achieved particularly highly. Deputy Head Girl Hannah Lancaster achieved grades 7, 8 and 9 in her core subjects of English Literature, English Language and maths and A* in all her other subjects. This is remarkable, given her intense training and competition schedule as a triathlete, who has represented her region at national events.
Head Boy Reuben Sheppard achieved grades 7, 6 and 5 in English Literature, English Language and maths along with one A, three Bs and three C grades elsewhere. Head Girl Tabitha Ashcroft-Wilson achieved a grade 6 and two 5s in English Literature, English Language and maths, with four Bs and two Cs.
Individual success stories include:
There are also several students, who have overcome adversity and gone on to achieve highly. Two of our year 11 students suffered severe medical traumas in their last year at school, very close to the exams and went on to achieve extremely highly. One, achieved high passes in the core subjects of English and maths and two As, one B and three C Grades in other subjects. The other achieved Grades 7, 6 and 5 in English and Maths, one A, three Bs and three Cs.
Given the very difficult circumstances they faced, these results are a credit to those pupils and the support of their families and the Academy’s staff.
