Record results for Cromer students
Published on 24/08/17
Cromer's class of 2017 has recorded record results for the academy.
The headline GCSE pass rate has risen for the third year in a row, with students achieving a stunning 69% Grade 4+ in English and maths.
The increase on last year comes despite a national trend for falling results.
This year's exams see the start of a move to a new numerical grading system between 9 and 1, replacing the old A-G regime, and the removal of coursework assessment. English and maths have already changed, with remaining subjects to follow over the next two years.
Principal Geoff Baker said: "These are phenomenal grades and show how our school community has really pulled together and focused on achieving some excellent outcomes for our Year 11 class of 2017.
"This is the third year in a row that we have achieved the highest grades in the school's history. I am incredibly proud of our students and our dedicated staff who have supported them."
