Many Neale-Wade Academy students celebrate top grade GCSEs
In a change to tradition pupils at the Neale-Wade Academy in March received their GCSE results online this morning, rather than in person from the school.
A decision was made earlier in the week not to invite the Year 11 students into the March school to collect their results because of the ongoing pandemic.
However, that did not mean there were not celebrations as the pupils enjoyed success in their much-anticipated results.
The academy, which is part of The Active Learning Trust, has seen many of its students achieve top grades. Student, Laura Hardy was awarded five grade 9s, two grade 8s, two grade 7s and two grades at Distinction*.
Fellow student, Archie Carman achieved four grade 9s, two grade 8s, two grade 7s and two grades at Distinction*.
Other stand-outs include Jack Day, who achieved three grade 9s, one grade 8, two grade 7s, two grades at distinction* and one at distinction.
Additionally, Gabriel Gritsenko received two grade 9s, three grade 8s, two grade 7s, one grade 6 and a level 2 distinction.
Overall, students achieved an impressive total of 125 grades at level 9 and distinction* across all subjects.
Graham Horn, principal, said: “There can be no doubt that it has been another difficult year, but the students and staff at Neale-Wade Academy have well and truly overcome the challenges.
“We are so proud to see so many of our students achieve excellent grades and have their hard work rewarded – I really do wish them the best of luck as they continue on their educational journey.
“Our staff have been incredible too and have ensured that our academy is always a thriving centre of educational excellence. Their levels of commitment and dedication have been exceptional and have definitely contributed to our success today.”
