King Edward VII (KES) Academy is celebrating another year of improvement for their GCSE results with 50 per cent gaining A* to C in English and Maths.

The figures released come under the new performance indicator, replacing the “gold standard” of five A* to C grades including English and maths.

Principal Craig Morrison said: “Our results show further improvements in the performance at KES Academy and they consolidate the major gains from last year.

“We are particularly happy with the strong increase in the number of A and A* grades this year.

“More and more of our students are well prepared for the next stage of their education each year.

“Well done to all of our students and my thanks to our staff for the great successes contained within these results.”

David Pomfret, Chief Executive of CWA Academy Trust, said: “All of our academies have either matched or improved on their results from last year, and all have secured stronger rates of progress than in 2015 which is fantastic news.

“This reflects the hard work and dedication made by all staff and students involved over the last academic year.

“Well done to all of our CWA Academy Trust students who have received their GCSE results today.

“I wish each and every student the very best of luck with their new ventures.”
