Best Ever GCSE Results

Magna Academy is celebrating a record set of GCSE results, with many students achieving excellent grades and making exceptional progress from their starting points. This is the first cohort of students who have been at Magna from Year 7 in September 2013.
Magna students have achieved an Attainment 8 score of 51.5, a wonderful achievement. We are very much looking forward to the publication of the performance tables in October as we are very excited about what our Progress 8 score will be, as this will be a true reflection of the fantastic journey made by our students. We are anticipating a very high Progress 8 score - it could well be in the top 1% of schools nationally.
49% achieved 9-5 grades in English and Maths combined, smashing the minimum target to be in the top 5% nationally for progress that we set them. 11% achieved 9-7 grades in English and Maths combined, our highest ever, with 64% achieving 9-4 in English and Maths combined.
Records have been broken across almost every subject. English Language, English Literature, Maths, Science, History, Geography, French and Art have all exceeded the targets we set for %9-5 and %9-7 performance, based on the top 5% nationally for progress.
19% have achieved the EBacc at 9-4 pass with 11% achieving it at 9-5 pass. Again, these are record achievements for Magna students.
Many students have performed exceptionally well – too many to actually specifically name!
Mr Tutt, Principal said:
‘We are incredibly proud of our students and how hard they have worked to achieve these amazing results and we warmly congratulate all of them.
‘Year 11 have been a really fantastic group of students to work with and have shown that they have really high aspirations for their futures – they really deserve this success. They rose magnificently to the challenge of the new GCSEs, working with a relentless sense of purpose to achieve them. We wish them all the success for the future and look forward to working again with many of them in the sixth form, as they climb their personal mountain to university or aspirational alternative.’
