GCSE Results 2015 - Closing the Gaps

This year's GCSE results at Kirk Hallam Community Academy are considerably improved from last year.

 

Most pleasing is the fact that the difference in performance between the majority of students and those disadvantaged in the past has closed considerably this year as a direct result of initiatives the Academy has put in place in response to the Government's 'Closing the Gap' agenda. The gap in achievement between boys and girls has also fallen significantly this year - in fact the gaps in achievement between different groups of students is far better than national averages in all measures. Over two thirds of students achieved A*-C in English and the same is the case for Maths with 55% achieving 5+ A*-C Grades including English and maths.

 

86 of our students achieved at least one A*/A grade, 42 students achieved at least 3 A*/A grades, 28 students achieved at least 5 A*/A grades - 14 of which achieved 8+ A*/A grades: Kelly Allen, Hannah Askew, Liam Attwood, Sophie Bloor, Jack Bradley, Louise Cardozo, Rebecca Charlton, Bethany Clarke, Skye Frost, Matthew Gadsby, Alexandra Hines, Matthew Hitchcock, Evan Hollis, Katie Houldsworth, Chloe Jackson, Isobel Lee, Jack Lee, Chloe Mccafferty, Jack Minchin, Aidan Norris, Ryan Parkes, Ryan Pigott, Eloise Rogers, Hannah Smith, Adam Watson, Hollie Wheat, Jack Wright, Danielle Wyld.

 

We congratulate you along with all our students who worked so hard to achieve, including some who have faced severe difficulties during their time at Kirk Hallam – every single student in Y11 leaves us with some qualifications for the future.

 

The results are testament to all the hard work students and staff have put in over the last five years and students can now reap their rewards as they pass on to the next stage of their lives, be it in employment, training or further education.

 

Of those students moving on to further education the majority will be joining our Sixth Form this September which recorded its best ever A-level results last week being the 4th most improved Sixth Form in Derbyshire for Average Points Per Candidate and 7th most improved for average points per exam entry.

Best Ever A-level Results at Kirk Hallam

 

Kirk Hallam Community Academy is celebrating the publication of this year's A-level results as our best yet. Prior to this year the Academy worked in partnership with another school and it is most gratifying that these, the first set of results for our very own sixth form, show an overall improvement in all important measures, including Average Points Score per Student and Average Points per Entry. All our students achieved at least 2 A Level qualifications at grades A*-E.

 

Students and staff at Kirk Hallam know that hard work and determination are key to success at A-level and our results are testimony to everyone's efforts.

Also note a change to what kind of drinks will be allowed: From the start of next term (September 2015) we have a new policy for Drinks in the Academy for students in Y7-11. Fizzy drinks (Coke, etc) / energy drinks (Red Bull etc) can affect behaviour and concentration in a negative way. They must not be brought into school, if found then they will be disposed of. Over the Summer break, several new water bottle filling stations will be installed around the site for students.
