GCSE Results 2017
Many pupils at the Nottingham Academy are celebrating after receiving their results for their GCSE or equivalent courses of study.
The academy is particularly delighted that a number of students have reached the exceptional high standard of grade 9 in the new, more rigorous English and mathematics examinations, placing them amongst the top performing students across the country.
Whilst many students have done well, there are some that have a particular cause to celebrate:
At Nottingham Academy’s Ransom Road Campus:
• Anjolaoluwa Olosunde who achieved a grade 9, a grade 6 and a grade 5 plus an A*, grade, three B grades and two C grades.
• Mya Robinson who achieved a grade 8 and two grade 7’s plus four B grades and two C grades. • Zariah Fanklin-Grant who achieved a grade 8, a grade 7 and a grade 6 plus two A grades and four B grades.
At Nottingham Academy’s Greenwood Campus:
• Zeenat Tahir who achieved a grade 9 and two grade 8’s plus three A* grades, two A grades and a B grade.
• Saara Shahzad who achieved two grade 8’s and a grade 7 plus five A grades and a C grade.
Mr Rae, Lead Principal, said: “I congratulate students and staff for their hard work in preparing for these examinations. On behalf of all staff at the Academy I wish all our students well in the next stage in their learning journey and look forward to welcoming many students to our Sixth Form in September.”
Nottingham Academy Sixth Form will be pre-enrolling students today. Any students wishing to apply for the 2017/2018 courses should contact the Sixth Form Centre on 0115 748 3400 or complete the Application Form which can be accessed on the Academy’s website at: http://www.nottinghamacademy.org/sixth-form/
This year students will receive a mixture of number and letter grades. GCSEs in English language, English literature and mathematics will be graded 9–1, rather than A*–G. Most other subjects will adopt the numbers system by 2019. The new system has been brought in to signal that GCSEs have been reformed and to better differentiate between students of different abilities. See parent guide below for more information on the new grading system.
