GCSE results day 2019: St Hugh's Academy, Grantham
The West Grantham Academy St Hugh’s has celebrated its final set of GCSE results with the first improvement in progress for three years.
Under the new leadership of head of school Claire McManus, the academy reported that it has broken a three-year trend with results showing a significant improvement in progress.
Ms McManus said: “The results are testament to the unwavering commitment of the staff across the academy and the personalised support given to individual students."
Many of the students have cause for celebration. Some of those notable performances include Wiktoria Bialas and Kaja Dutkowski, who made on average two grades more progress than their peers nationally.
Sheena Colton exceeded her target grades achieving grade 6s in six of her seven GCSE subjects.
Dion Short and Anais Lawson were the highest performing students in English and maths.
As the academy begins a new journey as Bluecoat Meres, Claire McManus has expressed her confidence that this improvement is the start of a sustained and improving trend.
She added: “We still have a lot of work to do but I am confident that with continued support from Archway Learning Trust the academy will go from strength to strength."
