Braintree: Cause for optimism as relaunched academy receives GCSE results
1:26pm Thursday 22nd August 2013 in News
Improving grades at Alec Hunter Academy are a sign the school is moving in the right direction, according to its headteacher.
A total of 41 per cent of pupils achieved five or more A* to C grades, a five per cent increase from last year’s figures.
The school is also celebrating its best ever results in maths, with 61 per cent of pupils getting a C grade or better.
Headteacher Trevor Lawn said “We are pleased to see our results moving in the right direction again, although clearly there is still some work to be done to achieve the outcomes to which we aspire.
“Discussions with colleagues in Essex and in other counties have shown that English GCSE results appear to have fallen in many schools again this year, and we have not escaped this trend ourselves, which has affected the overall result.”
