Yate International Academy achieves record GCSE results
YATE International Academy was rejoicing last week as it received record GCSE results.
Students arrived at the academy on Thursday (August 22) to find that 55 per cent of them had achieved five or more A* to C grades including English and Maths – a six per cent increase on 2012.
Overall 81 per cent of pupils got five or more grades of A* to C, with 74 per cent of the total entries graded A* to C.
In addition, the percentage of entries achieving A* and A grades doubled from 2012 to 14.5 per cent.
Academy principal Roger Gilbert said the staff were delighted with the record results and particularly strong results in certain subjects, including English the sciences, film studies, history, geography and sociology.
"It is further evidence of the improving standards at the academy and the commitment to doing the best for each individual child," he said.
"The collective efforts of all involved cannot be underestimated and I would personally like to thank and congratulate all of our excellent staff who have made such a difference working with all these young people.
"The students were in a very buoyant mood this morning collecting their results, which are all thoroughly deserved. I wish them all well for the future."
Particularly impressive performances from students included Lauren Webb, who achieved four A* and seven As and Leah Morgan who gained two A* and nine As.
Jack Mayes was another high achiever, gaining two A*, three As, six Bs and one C and Joe Heron also did well, bagging two A*, seven As and two Bs.
