Isca Academy Students Celebrate Results
As part of the Ted Wragg Trust of schools, we are celebrating the successes and achievements of our students here at Isca Academy following the release of our GCSE results. We are exceptionally proud of all of our students and are thrilled by their results this year which reflect their hard work, dedication and commitment over many years.
Our headline results this year indicate a continued upward trend in attainment, with 70% of students achieving a grade 4 or above in both English and Maths and 54% a grade 5 or above in both subjects. These results mean that even more of our students can now go on to study Level 3 Courses at College and we are delighted that 98% of our students have already secured a route into education, employment or training this year.
Headteacher Aimee Mitchell said, “We are extremely proud of our students and all that they have achieved in what has been an extremely challenging period of their education. Their results are a testament to the hard work, positive mindset and effort they have continued to put into their studies and to the commitment and dedication of the staff. They now leave us with secure plans for the next step of their journey and a wealth of skills and qualities that equip them well for future success.” She went on to say, “Our greatest strength as a school is supporting all of our students to succeed both academically and personally and I know that the rich experiences that our students have had access to will lead them on to great things beyond the Academy.”
Some notable individual successes include:
Chris Child, Tom Maynard and Violet Howson are our highest achieving students with 8 or more grade 9’s across a range of subjects. These students have applied for A Level courses at Exeter College as well as the Reach Academy and with these results, we are sure they will be successful. Caitlin Vizard and Denisa Burca also performed exceptionally well with a suite of grade 9’s and 8’s, they are also both moving on to study A Level courses at Exeter College. We also have some students who have secured places on T Level courses. Julian Wawczak is pursuing a T Level in Engineering after securing some excellent results in Maths and Science to name a few. Ella Rose has also secured a place on the T Level Health course and I know she will be successful with an excellent performance at GCSE.
There are so many other individual successes and all of the students’ hard work has meant they are able to move on to the destination of their choice, including a significant number going on to study Level 3 courses, Advanced Apprenticeships, or specialist vocational qualifications in their area of interest. We wish you all the best of luck and are very much looking forward to hearing about your successes in the future. Today’s results are truly deserved, you have been a remarkable year group who have faced such challenging times, well done to you all.
