Abbeywood Community School has registered an increase of almost 20% in the number of students achieving 5 A*-C grades at GCSE including English and Maths in the last two years with 60% of students hitting or exceeding this important benchmark this week (up from 41% in 2011 and 47% in 2012).
The school also reports an increase in the number of top GCSE grades achieved.
Executive headteacher Dave Baker said:
“This is a remarkable turnaround for Abbeywood and validates the approach we have taken to ensure that there is a relentless focus on teaching and learning and a positive ethos in school.”
“These results confirm the findings from recent Ofsted monitoring visits which identified good progress.”
“Students deserve praise for the way in which they have applied themselves during a period of transition in the school in order to achieve these results. They have been given strong support and guidance by Judith Mee, Associate Headteacher, and her staff team.”
Associate headteacher Judith Mee said:
“These results show a significant improvement on last year and are a reflection of the tremendous efforts of students and staff with support from parents and governors. They are further evidence of the fantastic progress made since the school was placed in ‘special measures’ in December 2011. I couldn’t be more proud.”
