With a number of results still to be declared, Sutton Community Academy is celebrating its joint best ever GCSE results.
46% of year 11 students achieved 5 A* – C grades including English and Mathematics whilst 99% of students achieved 5 A*-G grades.
We are delighted that our students have also performed in line with National expectations for expected progress in English and moved closer to National expectations in mathematics. 55% of students achieved an A*-C in English and 60% in mathematics which is a remarkable achievement considering the low starting point of our cohort.
In the English Baccalaureate, once again we have achieved our joint best ever results and in line with National expectations at 22% 5 A*-C.
Mr Croft Principal of Sutton Community Academy stated: ‘We are proud of the achievements of all our students. Our success is grounded in the solid relationships fostered at this school, the dedication of all our staff and support of our parents. The governors and I would like to thank parents, staff and students for a great year.’
Ian Cleland, Chief Executive Officer of Academy Transformation Trust, said: “These are very promising results, providing excellent outcomes for the most disadvantaged pupils while the most able pupils have performed at national levels for the E Baccalaureate.
“We are convinced that these joint best ever results will improve further next year with the support of a committed group of hard working pupils, parents and staff.
“It has been another positive year overall for The Trust and it is encouraging to see results within our family of academies are moving forward. We’re committed to providing an outstanding learning environment for all our pupils and ensuring every pupil realises their full potential.”
Sixth form students at Sutton Community Academy are celebrating another set of excellent results. The school was full of excited students, ready to celebrate their achievements after months of extremely hard work and to confirm university applications.
Principal, Tim Croft, said “Once again we are delighted with the achievements of our students and there have been some exceptional results. Many students had top grades across the board and are now progressing to university. A pass rate of over 98% is something to be really celebrated. Students and staff have worked incredibly hard over the past year and we are really proud of our students’ results. Our Year 13 students now leave us for the next exciting chapter in their lives and we wish them well. Year 12 students have laid excellent foundations for the coming year and I am sure they will continue to push themselves. I would like to once again thank all of the staff for going the extra mile with the students, and the parents and carers for their continued support. The Ofsted inspection last year saw the many strengths of our sixth form and these have been reflected in the results.”
Ian Cleland, Chief Executive Officer of Academy Transformation Trust, said: “We are delighted with the success of our pupils at Sutton Community Academy who have worked incredibly hard supported by committed staff enabling 98 per cent of students to achieve A-level passes and over 60 per cent achieving these at the higher grades. Well done to everyone.”
Take a look and see how we’ve spent our activity days…
All students need to come to school in PE kit and be prepared for all weather, please bring sun cream, drinks, hat and a jumper if it’s cold. If the weather is poor there are indoor plans in place so PE kits will still need to be worn. Thank you.
The group visited The Book Case in Lowdham, an independent bookshop that supports local and school reading groups, to choose books of their choice. Each student was given a ‘virtual’ £5 to spend on their favourite author. An enjoyable hour was spent perusing the shelves to find exactly the right purchases.
With books in hand, or rather left in the minibus, the group were treated to milk shakes, ice-creams and fudge cake.
Well done to all the students involved. Who says reading can’t be fun!
The BTEC Travel and Tourism students are currently exploring the appeal of the Peak District National Park for a variety of different types of tourist. To enable them to access primary evidence and to witness the area first hand they travelled to the national park for data collection purposes. This was the second year that this particular trip had been arranged for students of this course since the work produced from the visit last year was highly commended by the examination board.
The visit included time spent visiting Chatsworth House and also Matlock Bath as well as enjoying a scenic route across the park. The students worked as a team to collect their primary data and to investigate its appeal to different types of tourist. This evidence will be extremely useful as they create their individualised coursework.
This trip proved to be extremely worthwhile in providing them with access to information and the opportunity to experience an area of countryside which was new to many students.
On Friday 26th June, 80 students attended the Year 11 Prom held at the Towers. Unfortunately the rain started just as they arrived, but they went into the room in their suits and ball dresses looking stunning and about 20 years old! They had a buffet, chocolate fountain and a magician entertaining the staff and students. Their behaviour was amazing and they all looked so wonderful.
The Year 11 Presentation Evening was a wonderful opportunity for students, families and staff to share the successes of the year. It was great to see so many talented individuals from across Year 11 receive nominations and awards. The audience was enthralled during the speeches, especially Paralympic Gold Medalist Ollie Hynd’s inspirational talk about overcoming many barriers in pursuit of making his dream come true. The audience was obviously proud to see members of their family being rewarded and acknowledged and to celebrate the achievement of all the students taking part.
Students were invited by their tutor to collect their Record of Achievements and were presented these by Ollie Hynd. Many students also received nominations for prize awards from all subject teachers across all subjects and these were presented by guests representing Specsavers and Nat West as well as by Mr Croft, our Principal. Over 80% of students were in attendance.
Dave Jenkins (Assistant Principal), said, “I sometimes have to remind myself that these are 16 year old students and I am very proud to have been part of their journey. It is important that they now move on to the next level to pursue their dreams and fulfil their ambitions. The level of talent, maturity, and dedication of our students makes me feel so privileged to work with them every day.”
