Mak­ing the grade in record fash­ion

Gloucestershire Echo - - YOUR MONEY -

ALL Saints’ Academy is cel­e­brat­ing an­other year of record­break­ing A-level re­sults. This year’s re­sults in­clude a sig­nif­i­cant im­prove­ment in higher level passes at A*-A, A*-B and A*-C, which have all im­proved by five per cent or more this year.

Prin­ci­pal Der­mot Mc­niffe said: “The rea­son for this sus­tained im­prove­ment has been the fo­cus on high ex­pec­ta­tions for all and en­cour­ag­ing our stu­dents to grasp the op­por­tu­nity to suc­ceed and ex­cel in their learn­ing.

“This hard work and stu­dious ap­proach from all of our stu­dents has helped them reap the ben­e­fits of achiev­ing great ex­am­i­na­tion re­sults.

“The ded­i­ca­tion and com­mit­ment of our teach­ing and support staff has also been a key fac­tor in their suc­cess.”

The suc­cess fol­lows a year when All Saints’ Academy achieved an­other good Of­sted report (pub­lished in Jan­uary 2019).

Of­sted recog­nised the Academy as an in­clu­sive school with pupils ben­e­fit­ing from pos­i­tive re­la­tion­ships with staff and the support they re­ceive when needed.

Teach­ing at All Saints’ Academy is rated good and teacher’s sub­ject knowl­edge is strong.

Pupils are par­tic­u­larly ef­fu­sive about the wide range of ex­tra-cur­ric­u­lar sports and arts in which they can en­gage, and par­tic­i­pa­tion lev­els are high.

The many vis­i­tors al­ways com­ment

on how won­der­ful, friendly and pur­pose­ful the at­mos­phere is.

Any Year 11 stu­dents and par­ents are wel­come to our open evening on Novem­ber 21 from 6-8pm.

Par­ents/carers can also visit the Academy dur­ing the work­ing day, con­tact 01242 711201 to book a tour.
