GCSE Results Day 2019: Nicholas Hamond Academy
It's a story of improvement at the Nicholas Hamond Academy in Swaffham, where GCSE grades are on the up today.
Forty-seven per cent of its students achieved at least a grade 4 in both English and Maths, up one per cent on last year.
And they say the proportion achieving at least a grade 5 in both subjects is up 10 per cent on 2018.
Principal Mark Woodhouse said: "Whilst it is pleasing to see the steady improvement in the outcomes for the academy this year, these results are the product of much hard work from all of our students and they should be deservedly proud of their achievements.
"Our students have not only shown with these qualifications that they have the academic ability to be successful in their futures we have been delighted to see the skills and qualities develop in our students to set them well for their futures.
"Well done to all our students and we wish them every success in their future endeavours."
Among the school's highest performing students were Lowenna Clarke, Leika Guerrero, Leila Guerrero, Lorna Hammond and Kirsty Sims, who all scored mostly 9 and 8 grades.
Susan Byles, regional education director for the school's sponsor, the Academies Transformation Trust, said: "This set of results represents a two-year trend of improving GCSE results at The Nicholas Hamond Academy. Well done to all the students and staff."
