Humberston Academy celebrates GCSE results
80.4% secure a Grade 9 – 4 in Maths and English
Students at Humberston Academy are today celebrating their GCSE results, with 80.4% securing Grades 9-4 in English and Maths. Part of the David Ross Education Trust, the academy has performed well under the new, tougher GCSE exams.
In Art, Resistant Materials, and Drama students also did particularly well, with 97.6%, 93.4% and 90.5% respectively achieving grade 4 and above.
2018 saw the introduction of the new exams in virtually all GCSE subjects. Under the new grading system, 9 – 1 replaces the old A* – G, with a grade 7 equating to an A and a 4 reading across to a C.
Overall, Humberston Academy has seen an improvement on last year’s results, with some star performances from a number of students. In total we achieved 35 grade 9s across ten different subjects – this is likely to be within the top 3% nationally.
The following students did exceptionally well:
- James Short achieved eight grade 9s and one grade 8.
- Jessica Grimston achieved seven grade 9s and two grade 8.
- Grace Thinnesen—Sanders achieved three grade 9s, five grade 8s and a grade 7.
- Keiran Hostead achieved two grade 9s, six grade 8s and a grade 7.
Dan Shoubridge, Principal of Humberston Academy said:
“We are absolutely delighted with our academy’s examination results. Together, students, staff, parents and governors have achieved some remarkable results. There is no secret to our success: it is simply ensuring we are all diligent and dedicated to achieving our potential with a positive attitude and as a community. We wish our class of 2019 every success as they embark on their new chapter.”
