Cleethorpes Academy GCSE students celebrate with Principal Janice Hornby.
Cleethorpes Academy students are celebrating a big improvement in GCSE results today with more students than ever before achieving the highest grades. These top grade 9s - the equivalent of an A** - have been achieved in a wide range of subjects, including English, Science, Art, Geography, History and Spanish.
69% achieved a standard pass in English and 65% in Maths. 68% of students achieved a standard pass (grades 4-9) in two Science subjects; 100% achieved a standard pass in Performing Arts; 85% achieved a standard pass in Spanish and 100% achieved a standard pass in Music. These are all increases on last summer.
Janice Hornby, Principal of Cleethorpes Academy, said today: "I am thoroughly delighted with this year's GCSE results. They show a significant improvement across a wide range of subjects and are testament to the hard work and commitment of both students and their parents, and our staff.
"There are many outstanding achievements, both in overall grades and the phenomenal progress individual students have made. I am extremely proud of all students and wish them continued success for the future."
David Hampson OBE, Chief Executive of Tollbar MAT, said: "I am particularly impressed with Cleethorpes students' GCSE results. They reflect their hard work, and the positive commitment and dedication of the staff at Cleethorpes Academy.
