University Academy Long Sutton principal expresses delight as school's GCSE results are announced
Congratulations were in store for many of the students at University Academy Long Sutton formerly the Peele Community College.
Liam Davé, principal said: "We are delighted to report that students at the University Academy Long Sutton have gained very good results in English and mathematics. More specifically, prior to any appeals more than 47 per cent of pupils have been awarded a grade 9-4 in at least five subjects, including both English and mathematics.
"Furthermore, the progress made in French was outstanding, similarly students achieved very well in BTEC sport and travel and tourism.
"Prior to results becoming validated, at this stage it is difficult to comment upon precise figures for the cohort's Progress8 score however, indicators would certainly suggest significant gains were made in the final few weeks in the lead up to the exam season and students, along with the staff should be congratulated for their hard work.
"With an extensive building and refurbishment project taking place over the summer holidays; being oversubscribed for the forthcoming Year 7 intake, both coupled with forging greater working partnerships with University Academy Holbeach, these are certainly exciting times for University Academy Long Sutton as we continue to move forwards."
Students picking up their results included Jodie Rhodes, who said: "I am really pleased, I will be going to Spalding High to do the A Levels that I have chosen. Thank you to the teachers for helping me over the last five years."
While Ben Gilbert admitted: " I am really surprised and pleased. I have got an electrical apprenticeship and I am really chuffed with these results."
Lilly Morrell-Bowley commented: "I was very worried and nervous before all of the exams. My teachers helped me so much, especially Mrs King. I am so happy with my results."
While Michael Hope concluded: "I am just so happy!"
