GCSE results 2016 – Academy students buck national trends
Once again Trinity students performed admirably in their GCSE examinations with many personal triumphs and a great deal of collective success.
Headline figures have increased dramatically with a 9% increase in the proportion of students gaining the coveted 5 A* to C grades including English and Mathematics. Trinity students also performed well on the Government’s new progress measures with significant improvements in Attainment 8 and Progress 8 scores predicted. There was also a further increase in the number of A* grades with 89 recorded in total, building impressively on last year’s record level of A/A* grades. In addition there were improved results for boys and those students in receipt of the Pupil Premium.
A number of students performed very well. A selection of the top performers is shown below;
Francesca Middleton – 8 A* grades and 2 A grades
Jack Parkinson – 10 A* grades
Gemma Powell – 9 A* grades
Bartosz Swedziol – 6 A* grades and 4 A grades
Jessica Griggs – 1 A* grade, 7 A grades and 1 B grade
Rebecca Harvey – 2 A* grades, 4 A grades, 3 B grades and 1 C grade
Christie Charnley – 3 A* grades, 2 A grades, 3 B grades and 1 C grade
Ethen Green – 3 A* grades, 2 A grades and 4 B grades
Phillip Gwynn – 1 A* grade, 5 A grades, 2 B grades and 1 C grade
Francis Sykes – 2 A* grades, 3 A grades and 4 B grades
This is all the more impressive given a national picture of falling examination results with some papers describing the worst GCSE results in 10 years. Once again Trinity students lead the way with an excellent set of results and it is incredibly pleasing to see all the hard work pay off. Well done to all and let’s hope next year brings more good news.
