King’s Lynn Academy (KLA) are reporting an improvement on last year’s GCSE results, with 45% achieving A* to C grades 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: “These results, slightly higher than in 2015, show that KLA has sustained the great improvement achieved last year.

“Although we would have liked to have seen even greater gains in attainment, we are pleased that these results represent a significant step forward in terms of the progress that our students have made in 2016.

“The performance of our boys already looks to be a highlight, which is in contrast to the frequently reported national situation.

“Well done to our students, who have shown great energy and dedication this year and have been supported by superb staff.”

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.”
