King’s Academy Ringmer students celebrate GCSE success – Best Ever Results!
Today, King’s Academy Ringmer is delighted to be celebrating another year of improved GCSE results. We would like to extend our congratulations to all our Year 11 students on their results, which reflect their hard work and commitment. These results, together with the fantastic recent Ofsted report, are testament to the great teaching and learning which operates at the school.
This year, students made impressive progress across the board, and the provisional overall pass rate is the school’s best. Students performed exceptionally well in both English and Mathematics. 76% per cent of students achieved Grade 4/5 or better in English and 70% in Mathematics. Progress across the board is above national levels.
A number of subjects performed particularly well. Physics had a 100 per cent pass rate, so too did BTEC Performing Arts. Art students performed exceptionally well with a raft of students achieving the highest grade. These are the school’s best results and both staff and students can be proud of the progress made.
Several individual students excelled, Ben Green achieved 7 Grade 9s as well as an A* in Further Mathematics. Chris Whitehead achieved a 9 in Art and Grade 8 and 7s in all his other subjects. Emma Stone excelled with 9s in Triple Science and Mathematics. Many other students managed to achieve the top grades. However, what is most pleasing is that more King’s Academy Ringmer students than ever have made significant progress. They are in a strong position to take the next step in education, training or employment.
The Principal, Matt Hillier, said: “I would like to congratulate all of our Year 11 students on their results and wish them every success in the future. We are thrilled to see that all our students’ hard work has paid off. With the recent Ofsted report highlighting the good quality of education in the school, I’m really pleased to see the staff’s and students’ work coming to fruition. I know the next set of Year 11s will be looking to improve even further!”
The Chair of King’s Group Academies, Sir Roger Fry, commented: “This is a magnificent outcome of the work that Headteacher, Matt Hillier and his staff have done and has confirmed my belief that King’s Academy Ringmer has the potential to be an outstanding school. I am proud of the School and know that our students are capable of excellent academic results. We will continue to support the School to ensure that it moves on from being ‘Good’ to ‘Outstanding’.”
The Chief Executive Officer, Nick Cross, said: “We are delighted with the progress that students at King’s Academy Ringmer have made. Our warmest congratulations to both students and staff for their hard work. Such a positive set of results, on the back of a strong Ofsted judgement, shows that the school is in a good place to go from strength to strength.”
