The Charles Dickens School is celebrating GCSE results with its students, who the school says have achieved well in the face of changes to both the grading and examination system for English and Mathematics.
Richard Morgan, Head of School, said: “I am pleased for the students as so many have worked incredibly hard to achieve good results. Many have the entrance criteria needed to continue with their first choice Post-16 Provision.
“This is a transitional period for both the school, now a sponsored academy, and for the GCSE examination system. I am positive the school will continue to grow from strength to strength.”
Students achieved 46% 5A*-C grades of which 36% of students achieved 5+ A*-C grades including Maths and English.
Mr Morgan added: “The school is delighted with some notable achievements for individual students with many students achieving their required grades to attend their chosen Post-16 provision, employment or training. There are too many students to mention individually!
“The school would like to thank staff for their hard work and all parents and governors for their continued support.”
