GCSE results at Oxford Spires Academy
GCSE Year 11 Press Release
We are immensely proud of our Year 11 cohort who have worked extremely hard and in these uncertain times have shown tremendous resilience and patience. These results mean that our students are well prepared for the future and we are very much looking forward to celebrating many of our students progressing into our sixth form next year.
Our high achieving students have performed exceptionally well again this year. There are many individual successes of note and these include:
Alex Dunn who has achieved top grade 9s across 11 GCSEs and this is in addition to the grade 9 which he had previously achieved in maths at the end of year 10. Brothers, Dory Reynolds and Gaby Reynolds both have 9 GCSEs at grade 9 in addition to their grade 9 which they both achieved in maths last year.
Evie Manton has attained 12 GCSEs overall and her impressive results include eight grade 9s and four grade 8s and Esther Abe has accomplished an exceptional set of results achieving 11 GCSEs at grade 7-9 with four GCSEs at a grade 9.
Dufuwaa Smith has achieved outstanding results with her 10 GCSEs at grade 7-9, including two fabulous grade 9s in Spanish and Chemistry. Noor Khan has attained fantastic outcomes with all 11 GCSEs at grade 7-9. She has achieved a grade 9 for Design Technology, Physics, Chemistry and Biology. Daisy Stilborn has been four remarkable grade 9s in Geography, History, Physics and RE and all 11 of her GCSEs at grade 7-9.
Many of our incredible students have shown tremendous drive and determination and have made strong progress again this year. We would like to recognise and congratulate Maria Miguel who has made nearly four grades of progress across her subjects and achieved the strongest progress overall this year. Miray Bilgin, Ronan Bennett, Dahnish Ali, Alisha Dogar and Nosheen Mullick have all achieved at least three grades of progress across their subjects and this is really extraordinary.
As always, we have a huge amount to celebrate. Congratulations go to the students and a huge thank you to teachers for their hard work, and importantly, of course, to parents too. We are delighted that so many students have thrived during their time at the academy, students have shone for many reasons inside and beyond the classroom and we look forward to sharing their future successes as students move into their next phase of their journey.
Commenting on this success, Principal Marianne Blake said:
“I am really delighted with the successes achieved by our students this year. Despite the turbulent and challenging national picture our students have risen to the challenge. They have achieved the grades they deserved and this will enable them to progress successfully on to their chosen A Level courses, training or employment routes. Across the board, it is fantastic to see students achieving their personal best, whatever their chosen pathway.”
Chair of Governors Chris Scrivener said on behalf of the LGB:
“These results mean that students can genuinely celebrate their achievements secure in the knowledge that their results are based on their individual effort and hard work as evidenced through school assessed and work and internal exams, which have been carefully scrutinised by teachers and moderated by senior leaders. Our congratulations to all students, staff and families/carers for these results at the end of a turbulent and unimaginable year.”
