Following an excellent year, we are delighted for students and staff with the 2016 GCSE results.
Preliminary results show that 2016 is another highly successful year for the school with some exceptional individual performances at A* and A grade levels.
Headteacher, Peter Mayland, said “This year the education system is facing the first wave of significant changes to exams. Because of these changes, teachers and students have had to work incredibly hard and I am delighted that they have achieved excellent results across the school. Our students achieve on average half a grade higher than their peers and a quarter of our Year 11s leave with at least 3 A* or A grades. This is a school where everyone really does achieve together.
I am incredibly proud of 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."
Jack Knott, who achieved 1A*, 8A, 1B and 1C grades, said “I am really pleased with my results and particularly my A in Maths. The grades that I have achieved enable me to attend the Professional Honours Programme at Wigan and Leigh College. I will study Maths, Chemistry, English and Biology and aim to be a Doctor when I complete education.”
Charlotte Kier, who achieved 2A*, 6A’s and 2B grades, said, “I am so happy with my results. They were far better than I expected. I am particularly pleased with my A* in history. I would like to thank everyone at Albany for all their support over the last 5 years.”
These results continue the recent successes of Albany Academy at GCSE level and reflect the outstanding commitment and efforts of all of our school community.
