Outwood Academy Newbold are delighted to report another uplift in GCSE results this year, making this the most successful year ever. Using the new performance measure of the percentage of students passing both English and Mathematics at Grade C and above, we have achieved 71%. English and Mathematics performance is above the national average across all measures for both attainment and progress. The academy would like to congratulate all the students on their success as they record the best ever results for the school. We would also like to thank not only our wonderful students, but the staff and parents for their tireless hard work and relentless support this year to bring about this improvement.
We are also delighted that more students than ever are achieving the highest grades. Whilst all students did wonderfully well this year we would like to recognise Abigail Khan who achieved 7 A*, 2 Distinction* and 3 A grades. Amelia Mills gained 6 A*, 2 Distinction* and 5 A Grades. Alfie Bowman achieved 1 A*, 2 Distinction* and 9 A grades, Chloe Tinker 2A*, 2 Distinction*, 7 A grades and 1 B grade. Grace Sutcliffe achieved 1 A*, 2 Distinction*, 9 A grades and a B grade. Alex Griffiths achieved 4 A*, 1 Distinction, 5 A grades and 2 B grades. Our congratulations go to them.
Principal, Steve Roberts, says “last year we based much of our work on the mantra of “do well”, which means being as prepared as possible for exams through hard work and effective support for students rather than leaving things to luck or chance. We said to all of our students as they went into their exams “do well” …and I am absolutely delighted to say that they did! I am extremely proud of the students and staff here at the academy, as we really begin to demonstrate what students in this academy are capable of”.
Julie Slater, Regional CEO said “Under the outstanding leadership of Steve Roberts, Outwood Academy Newbold has improved significantly since joining Outwood Grange Academies Trust and is a transformed school. In the last 2 years it has gone from Special Measures to a school where 71% of its students achieve A*-C in English and Mathematics. Congratulations to all our fantastic students, their families, staff and governors for achieving record breaking results again.”
We are delighted to announce that our Year 13 students here at Outwood Academy Newbold have surpassed previous years’ results, achieving a significant uplift in A level results. Sir Michael Wilkins, Chief Executive of Outwood Grange Academies Trust said that “our students have achieved great results.
It is testament to the hard work of all students, their families, staff, the Trust Board and Governors at Outwood Academy Newbold that we have yet again performed so well.
Sir Michael Wilkins, OGAT CEO and Julie Slater Regional CEO would like to extend their congratulations to all students, families and colleagues for the great A level results at Outwood Academy Newbold. Under the leadership of Steve Roberts, the school has been transformed and we are delighted that the life chances of all students have improved significantly.
Every student has achieved personal success, but of particular note from this year’s results were the performances of:
Jordan Perkins who achieved 2 A* grades and an A
Megan Bradfield gained 2 A* grades amongst her results
Thomas Sharp who achieved 1 A*, 1A and a B
Nathan Whitworth who achieved an A*, an A and a B grade
Jonathan Kirby who achieved 2 A grades and a B
At this early stage the vast majority of students have already secured their places at University and in the remaining days we hope to place everyone in a University of their choice.
We would like to wish our students every success for the next phase in their lives. This year we have more students going on to Russell Group Universities than ever before and we would like to just remind all of our students that you are capable of great things. Get out there and do well, do yourselves proud!
