Today, our pupils and staff are celebrating another set of excellent GCSE results.
- Our pupils made outstanding progress in every subject the academy offers.
- Our pupils made better progress and achieved higher grades than before the pandemic (2019) when grade boundaries were last set at the same level.
- A third of pupils achieved top grades in at least 5 subjects.
Our Principal, Ms Curtis, said “We are so proud of our class of 2023 – they have been through so much over the last five years and have made outstanding progress in all their subjects. This set of results reflects all the hard work of our staff, pupils, parents and carers – it really is such a team effort. This year group have excelled in so many ways – not just in their exam results – this year group is made up of talented and creative artists, musicians, actors, sports people, computer scientists, social entrepreneurs and certainly leaders of the future. Following on from our fantastic sixth form results and our Year 13s securing places at top universities and apprenticeships last week and our Outstanding OFSTED in the Summer term... 2023 really has seen Ark Elvin Academy dare for greatness.”
