Students and staff from Sir Herbert Leon Academy are celebrating today after receiving top GCSE grades
The Year 11 students who sat the exams in May and June are getting their results today, helping set their course for the future. The exams represent the culmination of their secondary school education and the grades students secure determine what they will go on and do next – further study, an apprenticeship or entry level role in the workplace.
This is the second year that exams have taken place as normal, but schools across the country are still dealing with the impact of the pandemic.
To support the Year 11 students, staff at Sir Herbert Leon Academy, which is part of AET – a national network of schools - laid on additional 1 to 1 tuition, booster classes in the holidays, before and after school sessions as well as buying additional revision resources for all students.
All these efforts paid off, with students securing some brilliant results, including:
Vilius Cinskis gaining 10 qualifications all above a 7, including three 9s and five 8s
Naseebah Begum gaining 9 qualifications, including two 9s and an 8
Divine Owusu gaining 9 qualifications, including five 7s and an 8
