Kirk Hallam congratulates all Year 11 students on their GCSE results – the strongest set of outcomes since progress measures introduced in 2016
Kirk Hallam Community Academy would like to congratulate each and every one of its Year 11 students on their GCSE results and their hard work in the run-up to the exams. After beginning their Key Stage 4 education in the middle of a global pandemic and having to undertake their studies throughout national lockdowns, remote learning and home isolations, the class of 2022 have today received the results of their efforts.
Over 50% of the students achieved a ‘strong’ pass (grade 5) in both English and Maths this year; an amazing achievement — the best outcomes the academy has secured thus far. Chris Turner, Head Teacher, said: “Congratulations to all Kirk Hallam Community Academy students on their fantastic GCSE results. They have shown huge determination, resilience and ambition as the first year group in three to undertake formal examinations.” “Throughout their two-year courses, they have overcome considerable challenges and performed admirably in the face of adversity. The 2022 results highlight a significant improvement for the school and represent the strongest set of GCSE outcomes since progress measures were introduced in 2016.”
“We are delighted to be welcoming back many of our Year 11 students to our sixth form in September, and wish all our Year 11 leavers the best of luck in their future careers.” Sandy Paley, Executive Head Teacher, added: “Today we celebrate the hard work of our students and staff who have worked so closely together throughout and following the pandemic.” “These results will open many doors for all of our students and we are excited to see them continue to thrive in their chosen pathways.” Special mention should go to Owen Reynolds, who achieved nine GCSEs at grade 9 and an A grade in Additional Maths, Charles Clamp, who secured seven grade 9s, one grade 8, one grade 7 and an A grade in Additional Maths, Abigail Judd, who recorded four grade 9s, four grade 8s and one grade 5, Lucy Matthewman, who received three grade 9s, four grade 8s and two grade 7s and Jamie Malony, who achieved three grade 9s, two grade 8s, three grade 7s and one grade 6. The academy wishes all its students every success with the next stage of their educational journey, whether they are staying on at Kirk Hallam Sixth Form or undertaking their post-16 studies elsewhere.
