Abbeywood Community School (ACS) students are celebrating their GCSE results, which are said to show a strong trend of improvement for the school in all key performance measures.

Overall, students have achieved better progress than the national average, with over two-thirds achieving a standard (grade 4) pass in both English and maths.

In addition to the featured high-attaining students (see below), many others have made significant progress (measured in comparison to attainment in Year 6 SATs). Students identified by the school as being worthy of particular mention for their progress are:

  • Lies Dunn
  • Arielle Toko-Yaleu
  • Brad Pickford
  • Annabelle Thomas
  • Safira Taplin
  • Anish Kataria
  • Freddie Collins
  • Megan Eyres
  • Ella Goodman
  • Rosie Henson

ACS headteacher Dave Howe commented:

“We are absolutely delighted with these GCSE results and extremely proud of our students. Central to our school values is equipping our students with the belief that there is no limit to what they can achieve, and this is reflected in these excellent results. These strong exam outcomes represent a huge amount of hard work and I pay tribute to our amazing staff and wonderful students. I would also like to sincerely thank all our parents and carers for their belief and support, as the relationship between home and school is key to the success we are all celebrating today.”

Richard Bendry, Key Stage 4 leader, added:

“I am very proud of our students who have risen to the challenge of being resilient and highly engaged learners. These results reflect the hard work by students, staff and parents and they set our students up for a successful future where they can begin to turn their aspirations into reality.”

Olympus Academy Trust CEO Dave Baker said:

“It’s great to see so many of this Abbeywood cohort achieve so well. Many have achieved the higher new number grades, which sets them up very well for their future study and work next year and beyond. Well done to the colleagues from across the trust who have collaborated so effectively to support each other and ultimately our students.”
