AET students took the introduction of the new, tougher, 2018 GCSE exam marking system in their stride with many achieving outstanding results.
The new grading scheme has been brought in alongside a new GCSE curriculum in England, whereby 9 is the highest grade and a 1 the lowest. Three number grades, 9, 8 and 7, correspond to the old-style top grades of A* and A, providing more differentiation at the top end of the scale.
There have many exceptional performances among students in AET academies in the 2018 A level results just published. Our congratulations both to them and to their teachers who have supported them with true commitment and professionalism along every step of the way.
Sixth formers from across AET academies in England were celebrating Key Stage 5 results on Wednesday and Thursday this week, demonstrating a strong and improved performance across the Trust in a number of key areas.
AET are delighted to announce that 2018 delivered our best ever Key Stage 2 results.
