Humberston Academy students excel

Students at Humberston Academy were today celebrating another set of impressive GCSE results.

The academy, which is committed to excellence for all, has maintained its strong academic performance as two thirds of students achieved five A*- C grades including English and maths – which is significantly above the national average.                                                                                                             

In addition, the number of students achieving the English Baccalaureate nearly doubled to 42%, a measure that shows performance in key academic subjects.

Matt Watling, Principal at Humberston Academy, said: “There is much to be proud of at Humberston Academy today.

“The results show that more students are achieving top grades in the traditionally harder subjects.

“In addition, when looking at the new government measures called Progress 8, which show if a student has performed above what the Government would expect as normal, it shows that Humberston students are exceeding and excelling.

“Students and staff continue to build on last year's achievements and there have been many success stories not only here today but throughout the year.”

Sydney Sullivan-Grey said: “I am shocked I have done so well, I didn't expect to get 3A's especially in History and Spanish!”

Bailey Jackson commented on his results: "I did so much better than I ever thought I could, I am really proud of my achievements this year."

Wendy Marshall, Chief Executive of the David Ross Education Trust, said: “Students at Humberston should be pleased with today's results, they are showcasing amazing success not only academically but on the sports field and in other areas too.

“I am pleased that the academy continues to shine, and that Humberston can rightly say it is amongst the best in the area. It provides young people with fantastic opportunities to succeed.”
