All Saints' Academy bucks the trend across Cheltenham in overall KS4 performance
All Saints’ Academy continues to make great progress, climbing up the recently published school performance tables for Progress 8 in Cheltenham.
Progress 8 measures the overall student performance in GCSE nationally.
Principal Dermot McNiffe puts this rapid progress down to “the high expectations that are set for all students at All Saints’ Academy. We have heavily invested in good quality staffing and leadership to ensure the highest standards of teaching.
High expectations of student discipline for learning and a studious approach to study in lessons and homework has been the key to our success. The atmosphere for learning during school hours and outside of school hours, whether in the Academy or at home, has dramatically improved and as a result we are securing excellence in student achievement.
“Despite the national challenges with the GCSE reforms this year, we have bucked the trend and our results will continue to improve. We are incredibly proud of our students and their determination to learn and succeed. Evidence of this great work is highlighted in the significant improvement in our GCSE and A Level results in 2017.
“We are confident our results will continue to rise year upon year. Our Year 11 students have already sat their mock examinations during this half term. The buzz for learning, achieving and succeeding at All Saints’ Academy will no doubt ensure the best ever GCSE and A Level outcomes next Summer.”
