Achievement at GCSE 2022
Students and staff at Swindon Academy celebrated with their families when GCSE qualifications are awarded in August 2022.
As testament to students’ hard work, 73% of Year 11s at the academy achieved a grade 4 or above in English and maths, with 61% achieving a grade 5 or above in both subjects. Securing the highest grades, 21% of students achieved grade 7 or above in English and maths. These exceptional results will place the school in the top 15% nationally for progress.
Amongst those achieving excellent results were:
- Giovana Marchetti who achieved eight Grade 9s and two Grade 8s;
- Oana-Cristina Tudor who achieved six Grade 9s and two Grade 8s;
- Leanne Fernades who achieved five Grade 9s and three Grade 8s;
- Kyle Rendell who achieved four Grade 9s and five Grade 8s.
Many of this year’s Year 11 students will be taking up their place at Sixth Form in September.
Karen Wright, Headteacher at Swindon Academy, praised the year 11 students saying:
“We have celebrated some wonderful GCSE achievements at Swindon Academy in 2022. It is particularly pleasing that, given the disruptions caused by the pandemic over the last two years, our Year 11s have achieved so highly. I’d also like to thank and congratulate our excellent team of staff for taking our students’ learning from strength to strength.
“I know how excited our Year 11 students are to begin their Sixth Form journeys - many of them at United College Sixth Form based at Swindon Academy. I look forward to progressing our academic offering so that we can continue to offer the best possible futures for our young people.”
