Pupils at Bristnall Hall Academy in Oldbury, part of Academy Transformation Trust, are celebrating their achievements as GCSE results are revealed today with 57% of the cohort achieving grade 9-4 in both English and Mathematics.
The results demonstrate an improvement for the third consecutive year, with 57% pupils achieving a grade 4 or better (equivalent to Grade C) in English and Mathematics. Performance in the highest grades was particularly strong with several pupils achieving grade 9 passes in English or Mathematics placing them in the very highest performers nationally. The results come in the same year as Bristnall Hall Academy achieved a Good judgement from Ofsted, alongside the introduction of the new, more difficult GCSE examinations. Progress and attainment both improved at the academy across the ability range.
Amongst many pupils at the academy celebrating their success are:
These are exceptional results, allowing our students to compete with other elite students nationally.
Vince Green, Principal at Bristnall Hall Academy commented: “This is an excellent set of results from an outstanding set of young people and continues the year on year rapid improvement and high performance at our academy. These great outcomes are testimony to the pupils’ hard work and that of the brilliant team of teachers, support staff, parents, carers and governors that we have at Bristnall Hall and I thank all of them. I am especially pleased to see how our young people have dealt so successfully with the increased level of challenge in their English and Mathematics examinations.”
Ian Cleland, Chief Executive Officer at Academy Transformation Trust commented: “The Trust celebrates with its academies their continued excellent progress in the achievement of their pupils. Over the last four years, from The Trust’s baseline in 2013, there has been a good trend of improvement. This year results have shown even greater improvement and we are delighted that no academies are below the floor standard. Congratulations to all the pupils and staff at Bristnall Hall Academy in gaining reward and recognition for their hard work and commitment over the year.”
Students at Bristnall Hall Academy are celebrating their achievements as A-Level results were revealed today.
In the same year that the academy was judged as Good by Ofsted over 80% of students have achieved 3 or more academic A Levels. This strong performance saw many students achieving the highest grades at A-Level. All students will have secured places or positions at their desired destinations in higher education or the world of work.
Louise Richardson and Jordan Ferguson are amongst students at the academy celebrating their success. Louise Richardson, 18, has overcome many barriers to her learning to achieve exceptional results of A*AA across her three A-Levels and has secured a place at the University of Birmingham to read Psychology. She has successfully combined her studies with a busy dancing, singing and song-writing schedule. Jordan Ferguson, 18, has combined successfully securing A-Levels in Psychology, Sociology and Biology with raising over £6,000 in order to volunteer with Project Trust in South Africa. Over the next year he will be one of two Bristnall Hall students supporting deprived communities in what will be a truly life changing experience.
Vince Green, Principal at Bristnall Hall Academy commented: “I am delighted with another set of impressive A-Level results. Yet again, the dedication of our students and staff has resulted in those leaving Bristnall Hall having great life opportunities moving forwards. I congratulate all of our students on their well-deserved results and thank our brilliant team of staff, parents, carers and governors for their ongoing support for our young people.”
Ian Cleland, Chief Executive Officer at Academy Transformation Trust commented: “The Trust is delighted that once again Bristnall Hall Academy students have performed so well at A-Level. These results show that all students have achieved a worthwhile outcome from their sixth form studies. Congratulations to all students and staff who have worked so hard to achieve these impressive results.”
