In another year of national change we are delighted that through hard work and commitment of students and staff, we have seen continued progress in the attainment of our students. 79% of students achieved grade 4 or above in English and 62% did so in Mathematics with 62% of students achieving grade 4 or above in both English and Maths.
More broadly, we are extremely pleased to have seen a 33% increase in the number of students achieving the highest grades. This is testament to their hard work and commitment.
Subjects with strong results include Art, Textiles, English, Sport BTEC, and Geography; in all of these subjects more than 20% of students achieved A*-A or grade 7 and above.
A number of students received very high results. Yasmeen Khan got 6 grade 9s and 6 A*s and Aditi Dahal got 6 grade 9s and 5 A*s – these are the highest set of results possible based on the exams they each sat. Other students with exceptional results include:
Madeleine Ratcliffe 5 grade 9s, 4 A*s, 1 Distinction*, 2 grade 8s
Erin Gilchrist 5 grade 9s, 4 A*s, 2 grade 8s
Nancy Henderson 5 grade 9s, 4 A*s, 1 Distinction*, 1 grade 8
Eleanor Kneip 6 grade 9s, 2 A*s, 1 grade 8, 4 As
Jehiel Johnson 5 grade 9s, 2 A*s, 1 grade 8, 3 As
Mac Macapagal 5 grade 9s, 1 A*, 1 Distinction*, 1 grade 8, 1 A, 1 B, 1 C
Tashfia Bakth 4 grade 9s, 5 A*s, 1 grade 7, 1 grade 6
Ellie Pizey 4 grade 9s, 3 A*s, 1 grade 8, 2 As, 2 grade 7s
Katie Heneghan 2 grade 9s, 5 A*s, 3 grade 8s, 1 grade 7
We would also like to congratulate Zeriah Sutton, Abi Labiche, Egis Matah, Ceshia Gaughan and Mwansa Chikange on their results.
Mr. Moreton, Head of School, said “It has been an absolute pleasure to see these students prepare for their exams with such maturity and enthusiasm and this is reflected in a great set of results. We look forward to welcoming many of these students back into our school community to continue their studies in our Sixth Form. They have been a delight to teach and our staff have been simply great at supporting them in their time here at Cheney School. I wish them all the very best in their future studies”.
Ms Kirby, Head of Community Schools Alliance Trust, said “It was an absolute delight to see so many year 11’s celebrate their results. In a year of additional pressure with so many ongoing reforms to their examinations, they have achieved really well. I would like to also thank the staff for their dedicated support and the skill they showed in helping students secure their results. These examinations were tougher than a few years ago and meant that teachers had to get to grips with new specifications both at GCSE and A level. It is a testimony to how much our staff care for our students that so many gave up their holidays to support with the extra preparation for examinations and to be here today to celebrate with students and parents”.
