The school and its Head teacher Mr Barry Bridden were delighted to share its success with Councillor See (Cabinet Member for Children and Family Services), Paul Boyce (Director of People’s Services) and Councillor Graham Morgan, Chair of Governors.
Students Ben and Louise (pictured below) achieved 13 A*-C and 14 A*-C respectively. Another student, Conor who achieved 13 A*-C, commented that he wanted to become a Doctor and that his results have given him a great start.
Miss Leanne Morrison, Assistant Principal for Key Stage 4, stated that the results reflect a culmination of the commitment of all the staff and support from parents/carers, along with the determination of the students. The results reflect the “best ever results” and an 9% rise from the previous year along with all the positive work happening on a day to day basis. The school is fast becoming a first choice school which the community can be proud of.
Students at the academy fully understand why they come to school and all are prepared to work with the correct equipment and attitude towards learning. This has now been translated into significantly improved examination results.
Mr Bridden said:
‘Naturally we are delighted with the results and we see this as a platform to create further success next year. The constant changes in GCSE measurements have been difficult for the children but I am proud of the staff in the way that they have adapted to the changes’
The Chief Executive of the Dean Trust, Tarun Kapur said:
‘Our aim is always to raise aspirations amongst staff and students and most of all ensure that our children have the very best teachers in front of them. This emphasis has been a key ingredient in our improvements this year. We look forward to continued improvements next year’
