Vale of York Academy @ValeYorkAcademyToday’s autumn year 8 Inter form competition saw the whole of year 8 on Football and Benchball competing for the best form overall in year 8! Results will be revealed in form tomorrow morning! Amazing effort and work from all the students 👍 https://t.co/VrwwkN8fNz7 hours ago
In a year of national change and challenges, Vale of York Academy has seen students overjoyed with their excellent GCSE results today, demonstrating the strong progress they have made over the last five years.
Over two-thirds of pupils achieved a standard pass or better in English or Maths, and the percentage of students achieving benchmark measures in English and Maths has also risen.
Deserving of special mention is outgoing Vale of York Head Girl Emelia Garnett, who received a sweep of A and A* grades. Her results represent a performance that is, on average, one grade higher than her target grades. Fellow Vale of York students Amy Clark and Emily Gardner were also presented with a clutch of A and A* grades; testimony to their diligence and determination.
Georgia Hope, Holly Dawes, Whitney Postill, James McNichol and Liam Hampton also have cause for celebration, after receiving GCSE grades which represent excellent progress.
Principal Helen Dowds said, “Well done Year 11, rising results are always a pleasure! We look forward to welcoming our pupils back on 5th September – I know that next year will bring successes as we continue our rapid journey of improvement.”
All staff at Vale of York Academy would like to thank the 2017 Year 11 cohort for all their efforts, and wish them all the best for their future in further education, training and employment.
