Students at the The Oaks Academy were celebrating another year of improvement in some of the key performance indicators. Although these new qualifications are regarded as more challenging than the ones they replaced, Academy students performed well and we saw a rise in the number of students gaining and exceeding the pass rate in Science, History, Geography, Hospitality and Catering, Drama and Music.
Speaking after the publication of the results, Mrs Emma Hooley, Headteacher said, “I am immensely proud of our Year 11 students. The hard work and commitment they have shown throughout the year has proved to ‘pay off’ when it counts. For the second year running, our results demonstrate the steady improvements we are making as a school and demonstrate that our pupils are well equipped to go on to follow a range of different pathways post 16. Individuals of note are Hannah Wallace, who achieved Grade 8 in six of her subjects as well as a Distinction* in her Catering qualification and Charlotte Kay who has battled adversity, in the face of her being registered Blind, and has walked away with Grade 9 in English Literature and History as well as four other subjects at between Grade 5 and 8.” Chair of Trustees Fintan Bradley said, “This year’s results demonstrates that the school continues to make progress. There have been some great individual results and pleasing progress for the school as a whole”.
Please look at our exam results and the school performance tables. However, please also remember they are only part of the story. Please also come and see our staff and students at work and see the powerful attitude to learning that underpins the progress our students make every day. Every day is an open day at The Oaks Academy so please feel free to make an appointment to come and see us on any day in the school year.
