Students achieve another set of fantastic GCSE & A Level results as the academy continues its transformation!

GCSE Results

In a year when there has been so much change in the English and maths GCSE we are delighted to report that 73% of our students achieved grade 4+ in English & Maths. Performance and progress across all subjects has improved markedly and we would like to take this opportunity to thank our students, staff, parents and families for their hard work and unwavering support this year.

Julie Slater, Chief Executive Principal, Secondary said, “today is the culmination of years of hard work for our students. We are delighted with the results our students have achieved again this year which is testament to the incredible efforts and dedication of our students, their families, staff, governors and trust board at Outwood Academy Newbold. I would like to particularly praise the work of the Principal Steve Roberts for their exceptional leadership in helping our students to gain these life changing results”. This year was about working with and supporting students to “do well” as they adapt to and reaching the new benchmark standards set nationally and the resilience, focus and determination to be successful will stand our students in good stead in the future. We are incredibly proud of our students and wish them every success for their futures.

SECONDARY SCHOOL PLACE ADMISSIONS DEADLINE IS 31ST OCTOBER 2017

A Level Results

Outwood Academy Newbold are delighted to report another positive uplift in A Level results this year particularly for those students achieving the higher grades of A*-A and A*-B. The academy would like to congratulate all students on their success and thank students, staff and parents for their hard work and support this year.

Julie Slater, Chief Executive Principal said, “We are delighted with the results our students have achieved again this year, which is testament to the incredible hard work of our students, their families, staff, governors and trust board at Outwood Academy Newbold that we have yet again performed so well. I would like to particularly praise the work of the Principal Steve Roberts and Clare Schulze (Sixth Form Strategic Lead) for their exceptional leadership in helping our students to gain these life changing results”.

Every student has achieved personal success, but of particular note in this year’s results were the performances of:

  • Mollie Davies who achieved A*, A and a B grade and will be taking a gap year as she applies to drama School
  • Emily Lister who achieved 2 A grades and a B and will be going to Durham University studying Primary education with QTS and Robert will be studying Modern Languages and Cultures.
  • Robert Phillipson who achieved 2 A grades and a B and will also be going to Durham University studying Modern Languages and Cultures.
  • Emilie Palmer who achieved 1 A*, 1A and a Distinction* and will be going to study Paramedic Science at the University of the West of England.
  • Kelsey Simcoe-Roe who achieved an A and 2 B grades in her results and will be going to study Languages at Leeds University

At this early stage, the vast majority of students have already secured their places at university or progressed onto a variety of non-university options, such as college or higher and school leaver apprenticeships. In the remaining days, we hope to place everyone in a university of their choice.

We are incredibly proud of our students and wish them every success for their futures.

We would like to wish our students every success for the next phase in their lives. At Outwood Academy Newbold we say “Do Well” and they did! We would like to take this opportunity to remind all our students that you are capable of great things… get out there and do well, do yourselves proud! We are certainly very proud of you!

2016 Examination Certificates

Examination certificates are now available for collection for Year 11 and Year 13 students who left in Summer 2016. The following points regarding arrangements for collecting certificates should be noted…

1) Certificates can be collected between the hours of 9.00am and 3.30pm from the main reception.
2) Please telephone in advance, before collection.
3) Students must bring identification with them upon collection.
4) If a student cannot collect their certificates personally, a representative can collect them on their behalf but they must provide the following documentation:

  • A signed letter of authorisation from the student
  • A copy of their own ID

It is extremely important that certificates are collected sooner rather than later, as they are required for Higher Education and workplaces often request them.

Certificates may be posted to you, but this will be at your own risk. If you wish to take up this option, requests must be made in writing, either by letter or email to d.shelton@newbold.outwood.com confirming the address where you would like your certificates mailing.
