King’s Oak Academy’s best ever GCSE results

The class of 2017 have produced King’s Oak Academy’s best ever GCSE results. 57% of students achieved a grade 4 and above in both English and maths and 35% of students achieved a grade 5 and above in both English and Maths. Whilst the 5A*-C including English and maths measure is no longer official currency, 57% of King’s Oak students achieved at least 5 GCSEs including English and mathematics.

In a year when the bar has been raised for GCSEs, these results are very strong. Most importantly, they are a testament to the hard work of the students and staff over the last five years. I am very proud to be Principal of this Academy and able to congratulate the students formally. Nonetheless, I know how hard everyone has worked to achieve these results and thanks must go to all of the staff at King’s Oak who have inspired our students to their success.

Today our focus is rightly on the young people collecting their results and it is right and proper that we single out one or two individuals for their performances in their GCSEs.

The following students gained at least 3 As in their GCSEs:

Marcus Abraham (4), Katie Baird (4 with 1 A*), Hugh Barret (7 with 5A*s), Jean Claude Cisse (3), Zoe Goodman (6 with 1 A*), Lauren Hall (4), Jess Hill (3), Jess James (5 with 2 A*s), Stephanie Larkin (4A*s), Callum Lovell (5 with 2A*s), Jade Rea (3), Hannah Thompson (3), Ryan Whittaker (8 with 6A*s).

English and Maths are now graded on a scale of 1 to 9 with 9 being the new top grade. It is above an A* under the previous measure and is reserved for those students who are really at the top of their game in their subject. Four King’s Oak students achieved a grade 9 in either English or Maths. They are:

Jade Smith and Ryan Whittaker in English

Hugh Barrett and Samantha Lacey in Maths

Congratulations to King’s Oak’s class of 2017 and the staff who helped them achieve such an excellent set of results.

Richard Clutterbuck

Principal
