Pair scale heights

Macclesfield Express - - GCSE RESULTS - STUART GREER

MAC­CLES­FIELD Academy stu­dents Colin Midgely and An­drea Cio­coi scaled the heights and achieved the new Grade 9- the high­est pos­si­ble grade- in Maths and English re­spec­tively.

Colin and An­drea were among al­most 20 per cent of pupils who achieved grade 7 or above in English and/or maths and al­most 70 per cent who gained the new grade 4 or above, which is con­sid­ered the stan­dard pass in English and/or maths.

Staff at the Academy, which topped the Cheshire East ‘value added and progress ta­bles’ in 2015 and 2016, were cel­e­brat­ing the achieve­ment of a wide range of stu­dents who had made ex­cep- tional progress from their start­ing point at 11.

Among those who had ex­celled in this re­spect were Mya Tom­lin­son, Fraser Mad­docks, Molly Row­botham, Lucy Graves, Yzs­njoy Perez, To­bias David­son, Abby Walker and An­drea Cio­coi.

The Academy’s unique cur­ricu­lum struc­ture means that many Year 9 and Year 10 stu­dents have also com­pleted ei­ther one or two GCSE cour­ses.

Thir­teen year 9 stu­dents achieved grades A and A* in­clud­ing A*s for Katie Vaughan in His­tory and Martha Noakes in Mu­sic.

Thirty six year tens achieved the top grades in­clud­ing A*s for Becky Mee­han (Pho­tograhy), Ka­cie Law­ton and Amy Reed (Drama), Rob Row­son (Com­puter Science) and Mad­die Bur­ton (Span­ish and Mu­sic).
