Manor students celebrate fantastic 2017 GCSE results
Students from Manor Church of England Academy celebrated fantastic GCSE results in August 2017. Results in the new GCSE English exam were exceptional with 42% of students attaining grades 9-7, (broadly equivalent to A-A* in the old grading system with grade 9 being A**). In Maths, 30% of students achieved grades 9-7, an outstanding result too. Some 82% of students achieved the new benchmark of 9-4 in English and Maths.
Across the year there were 20 students who achieved more than 10 A*-A results and the number of Manor students achieving grade 9s was well above the 2017 national average. There were a significant number of students whose progress from Key Stage 2 was also well above the national average.
Of the 2017 results, Principal Simon Barber said: “These results are wonderful! Our staff and students have worked incredibly hard and it is brilliant to see this hard work pay off. The students have shown real dedication and commitment and have worked so hard to get to grips with the new GCSEs in Maths and English, whilst still focusing on their other subjects. On behalf of all the staff at Manor, I’d like to congratulate all our students on their well-deserved results and wish them all the very best for the future.”
