Best ever results
Record GCSE results in 2016
Everyone at The de Ferrers Academy are delighted by the achievements of our students as they receive their GCSE results. Seventy seven per cent have achieved grade A*-C in both maths and English.
Principal Nick Holmes said: "I'm delighted that students and staff are celebrating record results at The Academy after all the hard work which has been put in over the last two years, in particular. We now have 77 per cent of our students achieving at least Grade C in both maths and English - up by 10 per cent on last year's figure - and the average grade across all subjects is a strong Grade C.
"Performance has been strong across the full range of qualifications, and we have 19 students who have achieved grades solely at A and A*. We anticipate a busy day as students sign up to our sixth form courses. Congratulations to all those who are picking up their results today."
"This set of results represents a 22 per cent improvement over the last four years, and ranks the academy among the very best of similar schools."
