I am delighted with the best GCSE results The Hastings Academy has ever achieved. This validates the progress the school has made in raising aspirations and outcomes for our students, as highlighted by OFSTED, during the inspection in January 2018.
The number of students achieving a grade 4 and above in English and Maths combined has risen by 10% to 50% on last year’s results. In English alone, students achieving a grade 4 and above has risen by 9% to 62%. Maths has sustained their good performance of 57% grade 4 and above.
In light of the new GCSE specifications the average grade per student has improved again for the fourth consecutive year. Across all subjects the average grade for all students is now a grade 4 with 14% of entries graded as 9-7.
There are some significant student achievements, with a special mention to Steven Kucharski who achieved a grade 9 in English and Maths, George Frost who achieved grade 9 in Maths and Lily Fitzgerald who achieved a grade 9 in English.
In summary these results reflect all the hard work students and staff have put into this year and gives our students a good platform to progress with their post 16 studies.
