|Acton High School GCSE Results Improve|
Headteacher Andy Sievewright reports
In the context of falls in national GCSE results, Acton High's Y11 students have this year achieved well: the headline figure for the 2013 results is 46% 5 A*-C GCSE grades (with English and Maths), which is the second highest figure ever for the school and represents a slight improvement on the figure at this stage in 2012 (45%).
In addition, 58 students achieved 3 or more A*/A GCSE grades, which is 25% of the cohort, while 31 students achieved 5 or more A*/A GCSE grades. The proportion of students achieving 5 A*-C grades overall increased significantly on last year's figure (61%), moving up to 69%.
We congratulate all Y11 students who have reached their targets this year, and are delighted with the notable personal achievements of many of them, including Balin Shah who gained 9 A* and 3 A GCSE grades, Zara Siddique who gained 8A* and 6 A grades, Mustaf Khadr who gained 7A* and 4 A GCSE grades, and Eloise Fraser-Hurley who gained 7A* and 3 A GCSE grades.
Our first year of AS grades within our new Sixth Form produced encouraging results overall, and we saw some outstanding individual performances. This bodes well for the final outcomes for these students in September 2014.
