Students at Broadlands Academy have produced another set of GCSE results to celebrate, with more Year 11s than ever achieving their target grades.
For the fourth consecutive year more than 60 per cent of pupils achieved the benchmark of  five A*-C grades, including English and maths.
Achievement was particularly strong in biology, chemistry and physics with 100 per cent of students gaining A*-C grades, while more than 75 per cent of those studying English, film, graphics, history, PE, music, core science and additional science got A*-Cs.
Among the school’s top performers were: Jordan Lear (12 A*-As); Jasmine Rhymes (11 A*-As); Livvie Atkins (nine A*-As); Mia Conybeare, Josh House, Maisie Sparks and Ahmed Tumia (seven A*-As); Ellie Homer (six A*-As); Charlotte Cherry, Dan Goodwin, Emily Ricketts, Charlie Saunders and Ethan Thatcher (five A*-As).
The subjects that saw the most A*-A grades were biology, chemistry, physics, history and film, with 25 per cent of students earning a top grade.
Principal Dean Anderson, who has led Broadlands Academy for the last four years, said: “I am absolutely delighted for the students and staff at Broadlands who have worked so hard to ensure that these fantastic results could be achieved. It has been a privilege to be a part of the success at Broadlands since we became an academy and I am confident in the position the school now sits at following its ‘Good’ Ofsted inspection earlier this year.”
Mr Anderson is moving to a new post as director for education for the Reach4 Academy Trust, and James Hall will become Broadlands’ new principal in January 2017, moving from Hayesfield Girls’ School. Mr Hall said: “Congratulations to all at Broadlands on another fantastic set of results. I am really looking forward to taking up my new post and working with all at Broadlands Academy in January to build upon the rapid progress and significant success achieved over the last four years.”
