Exam Results 2017

Students at Passmores Academy have been very successful again this year. 

Our top performing students in Year 11 for 2017 were Daria Stroszek and Leah Bartram who gained all 12 of their GCSEs at top grades of A/A*. This was an outstanding performance by both Daria and Leah.  A number of other students also gained an exceptionally large number of A* and A  grade qualifications: Alex Lidbury, Abbie Tyler, and Isobelle Morris gained 9 A* - A grades. Other top performing students who achieved 8 or more GCSEs were Kimberley Airlie and Sarah Ngochinya  with Nikhia Cook, Asad Naqvi, Lewis Valatis and Abbie Golding achieving 7 A* - A grades. Sophie Cornhill, Drew Cooper and Gracey Dorling  gained  6  A* - A.

65% of the young people received the new pass grade in English and 59% in maths; in line with the target set by the government.

So much has been said in the press about how hard it is to get the top grades in the new English and maths GCSEs so it is fantastic that 18% in English and 10% in maths got the equivalent of an A or better. 

The broad and balanced curriculum offer at Passmores has meant that the number of high starting point students getting the English Baccalaureate went from 22% to 54% – a quite remarkable increase; in fact, 1 in 10 students got 5 or more A/A*

The performances in many individual subjects have made staff and students very happy. 100% pass rates in chemistry and physics (57% received an A/A*), 98% in creative media (56% received an A/A*), 95% in catering and child development and 94% in French in particular stand out.

There is no doubt that those that worked the hardest and took the extensive and amazing opportunities to extend their knowledge and skills got the results they deserved which is how it should be.

We are looking forward to building on our successes and continuing our journey of improvement this year.
