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."

I am incredibly proud of all our students, for the efforts they have made over the past 5 years and I’m also very proud of the care and excellent teaching provided by our wonderful staff.
— Peter Mayland, Headteacher
