GCSE Results 2017
2017 was Another Great Year for Albany Students
Head teacher, Peter Mayland, said “This year the education system in England has undergone the most significant changes since the introduction of GCSEs; changes which parents and employers may find bewildering. However, the real story here is that our students have embraced the challenge of these tougher exams and have been rewarded with the best grades possible.
In a year where the GCSEs are new and there are a reported 1% of students achieving a grade 9, it’s fantastic that six of our students have achieved this top grade."
