The Academy congratulates students on some incredible achievements in GCSEs and other qualifications this summer.
The Elizabethan Academy celebrates students’ achievements despite the national realignment to 2019 standards. We are pleased to report some incredible achievements by our students in their GCSEs and other qualifications this summer.
Principal Christine Horrocks stated, “I am so proud of all our students at the Elizabethan, especially after such difficult and challenging circumstances over the past two years. They have shown determination and resilience. As an Academy we believe in supporting and challenging students to achieve their full potential. We know that this year is a re set year in terms of national results and some schools and students will be more effected by this than others. It is therefore vital to us that all our students can progress onto their next stage ready to realise their career goals. We have a record number of applicants this year into our already oversubscribed sixth form and I am delighted that students value the teaching, pastoral support, breadth of curriculum, values and ethos of our very special school.
We are all delighted to share with you the thoughts of our students on this very special day
