BARNSLEY ACADEMY STUDENTS ENJOY GCSE RESULTS 2017

Students and staff at Barnsley Academy are today celebrating their GCSE results, which continue the academy’s year on year improvement and have risen to 46% of students achieving five or more A*-C grades, including a 4 or above in both English and maths.

This year, English and maths grades were awarded a numeric value, with 9 being the new top grade, representing the very best of performance.

Notable individual successes include:

  • Curtis Evers, who achieved an incredible 3 Grade 9’s, 8 A*’s and an A, by far the best GCSE results a student at Barnsley Academy has ever achieved. Curtis is going on to study at the prestigious Queen Ethelburga’s College on an academic scholarship.
  • Morgan Haigh who achieved a Grade 9 in Maths, 3 A*’s in the Sciences, a Distinction*, 3 A’s and 2 B’s
  • Owen Beasley, who made, on average, almost 2 ½ grades more progress in each subject than would be expected nationally, including an A* in Photography

Stephen Dixon, Principal of Barnsley Academy, said:

“These results show an encouraging improvement across the board, with some excellent individual performances, such as Curtis Evers and Morgan Haigh. I’d like to thank all our staff at the academy for their relentless hard work over the year and congratulate every student that is celebrating today”.
