GCSE RESULTS 2022
The Academy is delighted to announce another set of GCSE results which showcase the talent and hard work of our young people.
Well over 82% of pupils have achieved the benchmark 4+ (the old C grade) in both English and mathematics which is up from 2019, the last time pupils sat public examinations. Over 65% have secured the challenging 5+ grade in both subjects, which is a 5% increase over the same period. Finally, we are incredibly proud of our 38% of pupils who achieved grades 7-9 in both subjects. This is the highest percentage of pupils to achieve at this level in both subjects in the Academy’s history.
Across the curriculum areas, we have celebrated excellent results that reflect the unique character of the Academy. 100% of the grades received by our pupils of Mandarin were grades 8-9. In addition, across subjects as broad as Biology, Chemistry, French, Music and PE 100% of candidates achieved GCSEs at grades 4-9.
There were so many individual successes that we have selected just a few to highlight:
Congratulations to Rawan, Ramil, Mayowa and Alexandro who achieved “9 for 9” across all their GCSE subjects - and to Joseph F who achieved 10 grade 9s having taken on an additional language. Similar congratulations go to Milena, Nora, Emilia, Helenka, Josie, Cosmo, Sam H, Tom S and Julia S who achieved six or more grade 9s.
Headteacher, Vicky Linsley, said
The Class of 2022 have completed GCSEs against a backdrop of extreme disruption- the first year of their courses were completed largely online in lockdown; Year 11 was therefore super high pressure and yet the pupils responded with determination, diligence and resilience. These are the qualities of SMMAians that will take them forward in life. I am very proud of all they have accomplished.
I am also thankful to the dedicated staff team and supportive parents who make it happen. We are a strong community and it is only by working together as a team that we turn out these excellent results year after year.’
Andrew Caspari, Chair of Governors, said ‘The Governors are very proud of the students’ achievements: they have been rewarded for their hard work. The results are also a tribute to the hugely dedicated staff at the Academy who have nurtured and supported our Year 11s throughout their time at St Mary Magdalene.’
