Chantry Academy students impress again with GCSE results
Students and staff at Chantry Academy are celebrating after receiving yet another year of superb GCSE results, with high-flying students achieving top grades.
As the Covid-19 restrictions this year have caused written exams to be cancelled, students have received centre-assessed grades estimated by teachers based on a compilation of work throughout the course and results in mock and progress assessments.
Particular achievements included those of Abbie Griggs who was awarded eleven grade 9’s and a Distinction*, and Charlotte Tucker who received seven grade 9’s, four grade 8’s and a Distinction*.
Other standout students included Megan Hunt, who achieved four grade 9’s, one grade 8 and five grade 7’s alongside a Distinction. Also, Alfie Cutts who received a two grade 9’s, three grade 8’s, three grade 7’s, two grade 6’s and a Merit.
Executive Principal of Chantry Academy, Craig D’Cunha, said: “I am incredibly proud of our students who have achieved another set of fantastic achievements this year, despite all the challenges they have faced. These results demonstrate the consistent hard work and commitment our students have given to their studies throughout their time at Chantry Academy. I wish them all the greatest success in whatever they choose to move on to in the next academic year.
“I am also incredibly grateful to our dedicated teachers who inspire and motivate our students, and who have provided them with support throughout this period of change. The success of school would not be possible without their contributions and support.”
Stephen Chamberlain, Chief Executive Officer at The Active Learning Trust, said: “Everyone at Chantry Academy can feel extremely proud today with students achieving a fantastic set of results, despite the challenges faced this year.
“Chantry Academy exemplifies everything that we aspire to as a Trust of schools. Students are enthusiastic in all that they do and actively strive to be the best they can be not just in the classroom, but outside of it too. I wish them all the very best for their further education and future plans.”
