GCSE Results Day 2018
We are delighted to celebrate the success of so many of our Year 11 pupils as they receive their GCSE results. Across the country, these have been new qualifications, with a more challenging content and a different assessment regime, but the hard work of our pupils and their teachers has again paid off. Of particular note are the excellent results in English, science, Spanish, history, art, food and cookery and sport. Of course, results are about children and their individual successes. We congratulate all the pupils on their results but would like to particularly note the excellent results of these pupils who all achieved 9 or more GCSEs at the top grades - Sophie Hemming, Pabish Rai, Bethany Dawson, Advaith Srivathsan, Jessie Thompson, Adrian Romanowski, Jack Sharp, Nitika Kumar and Ritika Kumar amongst others. With this being the first year of the new grading system across subjects we are extremely proud of pupils who achieved level 8 (including Ritika, Adrian, Advaith, Jessie and Beth) and delighted to celebrate and applaud pupils attaining level 9s - Nitika, Pabish and other students.
For the fourth year The Ebbsfleet Academy has shown what excellent teaching, high expectations and hard work can achieve as we celebrate 60% of our pupils achieving the new headline measure of a standard pass in both English and maths. This summer Year 11 pupils across the country sat the newly reformed exams in both these subjects, which were designed to be far more challenging and rigorous. Ebbsfleet pupils increased their success in both these subjects with 70% of pupils achieving a pass (grade 4 or above) in English and 68% in maths. In addition, 59% of our pupils gained at least five GCSEs including English and maths, a notable increase on last year’s already good results.
There were numerous students who did exceptionally well. Successful pupils who achieved all their GCSEs at grade C/level 4 or above included Nathan Quickenden (12, with 4 at A+); Thandi Mlambo (12, with 3 at A+); Adama Stone (11, 1 at A+); Deanna-Leigh Stuart (10, 4 at A+); Thenujan Suthakaran (11, 4 at A+) and Keeleigh O’Brien (10, with 4 at A+).
Outstanding pupils who mostly achieved only the very top grades (A, A*, 7, 8 or 9) included Kayla Samson, achieving top grades in 8 of her 10 GCSEs, Tara Reidy-O’Brien achieving 7 of her 10 at top grade, Joshua Wilcox 7 of his 9, Brigid Flynn 8 of her 11, Ruveyda Ekinci 7 of her 12, Sam Goodman 8 of his 11 and Caitlin Winter with an amazing 9 of her 10 GCSEs at the very top grades.
This is another superb achievement for the pupils, their families and their teachers.
