HARRIS Church of England Academy is celebrating after 100 per cent of its students passed GCSE qualifications.

A*-C grades were achieved by 62 per cent of students, including English and Mathematics – a 15 per cent improvement over last year.

Students performed above the national average in achieving A*-C grades in English and Mathematics.

Top achievers getting A/A* grades were Valerie Brixelova, Lottie Duffin, Hannah Diesch, Eve Farmer, Isabelle Glass, Mateusz Grygierzec, Charlotte Hart, Stephanie Holm, Ben Lumsden, Kelly Price, Isobel Plumbley, Luke Strachan, Cameron Ward and Jonathan Dallimore.

Assistant Head Roberta Harrison said: “As the pressure to achieve excellent exam results increases nationally in light of the new grading structure, I am pleased that Harris Church of England Academy is able to celebrate a year of improving examination results.

“In an era of new more challenging grading it is pleasing that three per cent of Harris students achieved a grade 9 result in English which is the grade for exceptional performance.

“The results as always are a reflection of the partnership between students, parents/carers and staff. I would like to take this opportunity to praise and congratulate all of those involved in ensuring that the students at Harris Church of England Academy are now able to move on to the next step in their future with GCSE success behind them.”
