Results Day 2023: Etonbury GCSE results well above national average
Year 11 students at Etonbury Academy are celebrating today (Thursday 24 August) after GCSE and BTEC results were released.
Staff at the Arlesey school are incredibly proud of the achievements of students, who have posted a fantastic set of results.
The mark for students achieving grades 9-4 including English and Maths is nearly 10% above the national average, which is a wonderful achievement and just reward for a year group which worked incredibly hard throughout the duration of their GCSE courses.
Congratulations to the school’s top three performing students – Alfie N, Rebecca C and Jack G – who achieved the very highest 9-7 grades – while students who obtained the highest progress score reaching on average two grades above target were Mihaela C, Molly M, Lucas M and Rebecca C.
Principal Joanne Young said: "Congratulations to every student who collected results today.
"They have been a phenomenal cohort of students throughout their time at the school and have embraced the academic challenge that GCSE presents. They have been determined to always aim high and be the best they can be.
“I would also like to take this opportunity to publicly thank the staff who have supported the students and worked tirelessly to ensure students are able to achieve their full potential.”
She added: "Thanks also must go to the parents and carers of students collecting results today for their unwavering support. Working in partnership with our families is one of the keys to the success of the school."
With the school's new Sixth Form set to open its doors, Chloe Dowden, Head of Sixth Form, has been busy recruiting students on to A Level and BTEC Level 3 courses ready for September.
She said: “We are excited to be welcoming many of the students back to Etonbury to continue their studies.
“Enjoy celebrating your results and we wish you well in the next phase of your education.”
BEST Chief Executive Officer Dr Alan Lee said: "I am so pleased for all Etonbury students who, throughout their GCSE studies, have consistently shown terrific character and have met all challenges head-on.
"Staff and parents have been with them every step of the way. Together, exceptional results have been achieved. I am tremendously proud and grateful and wish this wonderful group of young adults every success in the future."
