Students at Broadlands Academy were today celebrating the best set of examination results in the history of Broadlands smashing all previous records. The Academy, since its conversion from Broadlands School in December 2012, has focussed on improving outcomes for all students.
68% of students achieved 5 A*-C including English and Maths which is a 7 percentage point rise from 2013 (61%). The Academy is particularly proud of improved Maths results which have again risen with 77% of students achieving an A*-C grade. English results have continued to rise with 85% of students gaining an A*-C grade and 86% making 3 or more levels progress.
Dean Anderson, Academy Principal, said:
“We are incredibly proud of the achievements of our Year 11 students which are a reward for their hard work and endeavour. To have achieved such fantastic results in light of Government changes to how KS4 qualification measures are calculated, is a tribute to the improvements we have made and the determination and dedication of staff and students. Results in 2013 had beaten the previous best achieved by Broadlands School and to follow this up with significant improvement yet again in 2014, demonstrates the rapid progress being made at the Academy.”
