Academy hails pupils’ ‘in­cred­i­ble suc­cess’

Macclesfield Express - - GCSE RESULTS - STUART GREER

FALLIBROOME Academy has hailed this year’s re­sults as ‘in­cred­i­bly suc­cess­ful’.

Un­der the new ex­am­i­na­tion regime, 89pc of stu­dents achieved grade four or higher in English and 83pc in Maths while 80pc of stu­dents achieved five GCSEs in­clud­ing English and Maths at Grade C/4.

This suc­cess has been repli­cated right across the cur­ricu­lum with an as­ton­ish­ing 36pc of grades be­ing scored as ei­ther A*/A or 9/8/7.

Be­hind the ex­am­i­na­tion sta­tis­tics are some in­di­vid­ual suc­cess sto­ries.

Jed Hunter achieved eight grades at B or C de­spite the huge per­sonal chal­lenges that he faced.

Tom Brind­ley worked in­cred­i­bly hard to achieve seven grades at A*-C while also com­pet­ing with the GB sail­ing team.

Natha­nial Costi­gan’s ap­pear­ance on the list of stu­dents with nine or more A* grades is all the more ex­tra­or­di­nary con­sid­er­ing his vis­ual im­pair­ment and his Par­a­lympic swim­ming com­mit­ments.

Lily Caw­ley’s de­ter­mi­na­tion to suc­ceed de­spite her phys­i­cal dis­abil­i­ties is ev­i­denced in her ex­cel­lent re­sults, in­clud­ing Grade 9s in both English Lan­guage and English Lit­er­a­ture.

Howard Xu se­cured six grades at A or A* de­spite hav­ing English as a sec­ond lan­guage.

Daniel Evans and Freya Spooner also did re­mark­ably well de­spite suf­fer­ing from ill health dur­ing Year 11.

Peter Ru­bery, Fallibroome Trust CEO, said: “Fallibroome has a proud record of re­turn­ing ex­cel­lent ex­am­i­na­tion out­comes and this year has been no ex­cep­tion.

“We are de­lighted that the hard work of our staff and stu­dents has paid off so spec­tac­u­larly.

“Many of our stu­dents will be re­join­ing us in the Sixth Form in the weeks ahead and we look for­ward to con­tin­u­ing to sup­port them through their A-Level pro­grammes. Oth­ers will leave to pur­sue other cour­ses and op­por­tu­ni­ties and they do so with our best wishes and our thanks for their con­tri­bu­tion to the school over the last five years.

Fran­cis Power, head­teacher, said: “Stu­dents and their teach­ers de­serve con­grat­u­la­tions for achiev­ing such pos­i­tive re­sults at a time of im­mense un­cer­tainty.

“These re­sults are a tes­ta­ment to the hard work of a ter­rific group of stu­dents and are the ic­ing on the cake for the Trust as we have had a year of achieve­ment across our Pri­mary and Sec­ondary schools.

A spokesman for the school said: “We are in­cred­i­bly proud of the hard work that was done by so many of our stu­dents, many of whom have made re­mark­able progress since join­ing us in Year 7.”
