Students and staff at Abbeywood Community School celebrate the school’s “strong” set of GCSE examination results.

Abbeywood Community School has reported a “strong” set of GCSE examination results, with Grades 7-9 across a wide range of subjects, as well as many Grades 5-9 in English and Mathematics.

The proportion of students achieving Grade 4 or above in both English and Mathematics was 65 percent.

A spokesperson for the school said:

“Following the last two years where teacher assessed grades have been used, these formal examination results reflect the strength in teaching and student attitudes at Abbeywood. Headline figures this year continue an upward trajectory, following on from a successful set of 2022 A-level and BTEC results last week.”

Headteacher Benjamin Dilley commented:

“Congratulations to our 2022 Year 11 students in achieving some fantastic results. I am extremely proud of their resilience, hard work and the manner in which they have demanded the very best from themselves. It has been an incredibly difficult last couple of years, none more so than for the students in exam year groups, with the changes we have all had to make to learning, through the pandemic. The excellent results are the product of hard work from all our students, staff and parents who have worked together to ensure our young people had the best chance to succeed. We look forward to welcoming our highly talented students back to our Sixth Form in September.”

It’s fantastic to see students so delighted with their results, which are a testament to their hard work and commitment over the past several months. This year’s cohort have impressed me hugely with their work ethic, positive spirit and dedication during what has been a challenging year; and their success today is richly deserved. Congratulations to all our students and best wishes for the future.”


Dave Baker, CEO at Olympus Academy Trust, said:

“I am delighted for every student who has tasted success today and wish them all well in the next phase of their education and training. I hope we will see many of them signing up at the start of September to continue with us in the Olympus Post-16 Partnership. I would also like to thank all Olympus staff who have worked so hard to teach, encourage, support and challenge their students over the years alongside parents and carers who have had to be more actively involved than usual because of the pandemic. For any students who have not done as well as they had hoped, these results are not the end of the road – I urge you to come into school and talk to staff about how we can support you with your next steps too.”
