Students celebrate exam results
Published on 16/08/18
Thetford students have been celebrating across GCSE and A Level results this summer.
At A Level, the overall pass rate was 93%, with 50% of grades at A*-C.
Principal Dan Carter said: "This was a comparatively small cohort but they have achieved some very strong results that each and every student should be proud of.
"The changes to AS and A Levels produced some challenges, which our students and staff have more than met with some notably strong performances in languages, computer science, and further maths."
At GCSE, the main Grade 4+ in English and Maths measure came in at 42%, reflecting new tougher exams and a new numerical grading system. Despite the changes, several students achieved the highest Grade 9, above the old A* grade.
Mr Carter said: "Since joining the academy I have been very impressed with the dedication of our students and staff, and we have seen that in many results - particularly in languages where 50% of pupils received a Grade 7 or higher in Spanish, alongside strong results in French, Portuguese, and Polish.
"Several students got the new top Grade 9 in multiple subjects, including Holly Scott, Skaiste Ivanaviciute, Milda Siauciulyte, and Mollie Hammond."
