King Edward VII Academy is celebrating record GCSE results!

English and Maths 9-4 grades went up by 11% to 56% and the academy saw significant increases in the results of other subjects.

There were some spectacular performances from a number of students.

Jacob Biran, 16, gained eight 9’s, one 8 and one 7, he said: “I was expecting quite good results but eight 9’s was more than I had hoped for. I am going to continue at KES Sixth Form studying Maths and sciences and hopefully go to medical school after that.”

Dan Aviss, 16, was excited to gain three 9’s, an A, two 7’s, two B’s and one 6, he said: “I was really shocked to get my 9’s in Maths and science because I thought the exams were quite tricky, however I am so proud of myself. The hard work and extra time I put in paid off.”

Mia King, 16, was over the moon when she received her results, saying: “I am very happy with my results, especially my 9 in French! I am planning to continue at KES to study Maths, PE and French. My goal is to train to be a teacher.”

Sinead Marray-Woods, 16, was extremely happy with her three 9’s, one 8, three 7’s, two 6’s and one 5. She said: “I was not overly confident but I am overjoyed with my results. I’ve really enjoyed my time at KES and have built my confidence up over the years here. I look forward to continuing on to Sixth Form.”

Joe Karreman, 16, is hoping to continue his success following his excellent GCSE results; three 9’s, six 8’s and one 6. “My eyes tumbled down the page getting wider with each grade. I was not expecting to have such good grades across the entire curriculum, although I am disappointed not to get my 9 in Maths!”

Principal, Lloyd Brown said: “I am delighted to report these excellent results. We have been privileged to work with an extremely well-motivated, committed group of Year 11 students who fully deserve the successes they have achieved.”

“Throughout the year they have worked incredibly hard and gone the extra mile in attending further revision sessions and completing additional study in their own time. They can now celebrate their efforts.

“Parents have been extremely supportive of the work throughout the year and I would like to thank them for their contributions. Staff have worked tirelessly to ensure students achieve well and they are delighted with these results today too.”

Chief Executive of Eastern Multi-Academy Trust, Dr Duncan Ramsey, said: “I would like to congratulate all of the staff and students for the amazing increase in results this year. I have seen first hand the amount of hard work and dedication occurring at King Edward VII throughout the year. I notice a real buzz of excitement whenever I visit the academy and everyone involved should feel really proud to be part of the special improvements taking place. I would like to wish all the students good luck and continuing success as they move on to new challenges next year.”
