GCSE results at Oxford Spires Academy
We are incredibly 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 this year. There are many individual successes of note and these include:
Phoenix Denno who achieved Grade 9s across 11 subjects and 1 Grade 8: Callum Young achieved 10 Grade 9s and 2 Grade 8s: Tristen Dupret has achieved 12 GCSE Grades 7-9 and which include 9 Grade 9s: Jemima Webster has achieved 7 Grade 9s and overall gained 12 GCSEs Grade 6-9 overall: Millie Hastings and Iona Hallthorp both attained 12 GCSEs overall including 5 Grade 9s: Mira Harris gained 12 GCSEs including 6 Grade 9s.
Many of our students have shown tremendous drive and determination and have made strong progress again this year. We would like to recognise and congratulate Semin Qahramany who has made over four grades of progress across her subjects and achieved the strongest progress overall this year. Molly Ahmed, Emeka Obiekwe, William Harrison, Deimantas Sankauskas, Emmerson Earl, Martha Heaver and Maddy Taylor 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 all our 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 Oxford Spires, and have shone for so many reasons inside and beyond the classroom; we look forward to sharing in their future successes as students move on to their next phase of their life journey.
Commenting on this success, Principal Marianne Blake said:
“I am really delighted to share in the successes achieved by our students this year. Despite the turbulent and challenging national picture our students have risen to the challenges and shown resilience and determination to achieve their very best. They have achieved the grades that 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.”
