Notley High School and Braintree Sixth Form students have achieved another strong set of results this summer in this year’s GCSEs; these follow very good results earlier in July and August in IB and A level exams. The results show a continued upward trend in students’ achievement, with 60% of students achieving 5A*-C in at least 5 GCSEs, including English and Mathematics; this is matched by improved outcomes in all other measures. Some thirty four students gained at least 5A* or A grades in their examination results.
Headteacher David Conway comments that ‘it is particularly pleasing to see students of all abilities achieving so highly; we are also gratified to see the continuing improvement in the overall results of students at the school, which can only be achieved through the efforts of students, supported by staff, parents and carers. Although the 5 A*-C including Maths and English figure will no longer count towards the national Performance Tables, we are very conscious of the significance of these particular grades to the students themselves, and of course delighted with some very strong individual performances at every level. We look forward to welcoming many students into Year 12 within the next fortnight and wish all of this year group the very best for their futures.’
DfE changes implemented in 2013/14 had an impact across all types of schools and mean that it is not possible to make direct comparisons between 2013/14 results and earlier years.
