Maths tops the class of 2013

Holbrook Academy students again outperformed the national average in this year’s GCSEs. Overall, 70% achieved a minimum of five A* – C grades. In Maths, 18% achieved a top A* or A grade and 80% got a C grade or better. Both numbers are up on last year.

Incoming Principal, Dr Simon Letman, said: “I’m encouraged by these results. They are in line with the good progress identified by Ofsted inspectors in May. Maths was particularly pleasing, with a lot of hard work put in by students and staff. But we still have some way to go. I have concerns with aspects of the gradings in English and we plan to take these up with the Exam Board”.

When complete, a full analysis of this year’s results will be made available on the Performance section of this website.
