/ Categories: News
~ Many of the school’s Year 11s are set to join Sheffield South East VI Form – based at the academy – to continue their A Level or vocational studies ~
Students and staff at Sheffield Park Academy are celebrating today as GCSE qualifications are awarded.
Some individual standout successes are:
- Lina, who achieved four grade 9s, four grade 8s and two grade 7s;
- Jason, who achieved six grade 9s and two Distinction*s;
- Annabel, who achieved six grade 8s;
- Head Boy Louis and Head Girl Megan, who achieved three grade 9s, seven grade 8s and 6 grade 7s between them.
Students also performed well in a selection of vocational courses, including Health and Social Care and Performing Arts where the average grade was above a grade 6.
These excellent results follow the release of last week’s A Level results which, once again, saw all Year 13s at Sheffield South East VI Form – based at the academy – who applied to university secure a place. Several are now set to go on to the country’s most prestigious Russell Group institutions, including the University of Nottingham and Newcastle University. Many of this year’s Year 11 students will be taking up their place at the popular VI Form in September.
Congratulating students on their achievements, Roland Freeman, Principal at Sheffield Park Academy, said:
“Well done to our Year 11 cohort on today’s GCSE results. Following a challenging few years due to the pandemic, it is fantastic to see the ambition and hard work of our students reflected in these grades. Thank you to our excellent team of staff here at the academy for their enduring determination in improving the knowledge of our young people and their ongoing commitment to making sure our students achieve their very best. We would also like to thank the parents and carers of our young people whose support has been key in achieving these strong academic outcomes. We are very much looking forward to welcoming many of our Year 11s back into our VI Form in September where they will taking up their A Level studies or other vocational courses.”
