GCSE Exam Performance

SNA students celebrate outstanding GCSE success

2018 GCSE reforms mean that the new grade 7 and above is comparable to an A and above and the new grade 4 and above is comparable to a C and above.

 South Nottinghamshire Academy has achieved its best ever results this summer with subjects and individual students achieving outstanding grades.

 Headteacher Dan Philpotts says “These results are a testimony to the hard work and effort shown by our students over the past year. I am beyond proud of each of them and am looking forward to welcoming them back in September to continue their studies. I am delighted to see the school go from strength to strength with yet another year of record breaking results.”

 Many individual Year 11 students secured outstanding results including:

  • Jacob Sadler (pictured below - right) secured 10 x grade 9s.  
  • Callum Napier (pictured below – left) gained 4 x grade 9s, 4 x grade 8s and a grade 7.

Incredibly, both boys have received their GCSE results in Cambodia where they are currently with other SNA students helping local communities (Camps International)

 

  • Ingrid Giles securing 8 x grade 9s and 1 x grade 8 (pictured below - left)
  • Olivia Turner securing 7 x grade 9s and 2 x 8s (pictured below - right)
  • Evie Johnson securing 5 x grade 9s and 4 x grade 8s (pictured below - middle)

Their success is put into perspective when considering that Ofqual have released that only 0.1% of all GCSE students nationally managed to get 7 x grade 9s.

  • Best ever Progress 8 score
