Wishmore Cross Academy Celebrates GCSE Results
Wishmore Cross Academy are delighted to celebrate with our pupils strong 2019 examination outcomes. 100% of the cohort entered for exams at the academy achieved a grade in English and Double Award Science, with 83% also gaining a Maths grade, and all achieved five or more qualifications in total.
Part of Academies Enterprise Trust, students have performed well under the new, tougher GCSE exams that have been introduced over the last couple of years. One significantly disadvantaged young person achieved eight GCSEs, with grade 4 or above passes in English, Maths and Science.
Richard Johnson, Headteacher of Wishmore Cross Academy said:
“Congratulations to all of our pupils on their results, and my sincere thanks to their families and the dedicated staff team at the Academy for their support in helping to secure these. We hope that these help lay a foundation for helping our young people to lead remarkable lives.”
Schools Minister Lord Agnew said:
“Congratulations to all the pupils and staff at Wishmore Cross Academy, and the wider team at AET, on reaching the culmination of much hard work. GCSE results day marks the moment so many young people will make choices that can shape the rest of their lives, so whatever path they choose, Wishmore Cross pupils should do so full of confidence.”
Julian Drinkall, CEO of AET said:
“Our congratulations go out to all students and staff at Wishmore Cross Academy we are very proud of how well students have done, and their hard work and focus over the last two years have clearly paid off.
“At AET, we are wholly focused on ensuring that the education our academies provide helps young people go on to lead remarkable lives, and we wish all of our students the very best for the next step they take on that journey.
“The last three years has seen far-reaching changes at AET. Bar our name above the door, everything has changed – from the type of support we provide to each academy through to our governance. Everything is now geared towards the central goal of “remarkable lives” and it is wonderful to see the impact of those changes now coming through in each of our academies. The future is looking very positive, and my congratulations to everyone who is celebrating these results today.”
