Examination Results 2018

Our 2018 GCSE results are the outcome of our partnership with our young people and their families.  At Passmores we are determined to continue to do what is right for our community and not for an increased league table position.  It is because of this that we still offer the full range of subjects at GCSE and our students, with advice from the school, still get to choose subjects that will help them get the career of their dreams but also keep school an interesting place.  It was great to see a big increase in students getting top grades in a range of subjects that are disappearing from some school curricula.  In fact, subjects such as child development, creative media, drama, history, photography and graphic design saw a significant increase, and overall the students received almost 150 top grades (equivalent to the old A grade or better).

 Success in the new tougher GCSEs certainly requires a collective effort from all schools, students and home partnerships.  At Passmores we offer chances for young people to build on and extend their learning through additional lessons, educational trips and visits and it is obvious this year, as every year, that the young people who worked the hardest and took the opportunities on offer, left with stacks of excellent results for which they, and we, are proud.

 Every year a different group of young people sit their examinations at Passmores Academy and they all have different strengths and weaknesses.  We pride ourselves on getting to know our young people well. The students of 2018 had great strengths and certainly left with fantastic memories of a happy school life having felt safe and supported with results that enabled them to make the next step in their journey.
