Tudor Grange Samworth Academy continue trend of improved student progress
Newly appointed Principal, Alan Wilkinson paid tribute to the hard work and dedication of all staff and students. For the third year in succession Tudor Grange Samworth Academy’s GCSE results have seen an improvement in student progress, the key measure used to assess school performance.
Early indications show student performance has again increased on average, by over a quarter of a grade per student. Science results are particularly strong improving on average over one full grade per student.
Whilst results are not yet validated, some results delayed and some students awaiting remarked papers, outcomes are expected to improve further.
“Building on our judgment as a ‘Good’ school during a recent SIAMs inspection, these results are further evidence of the improvements Tudor Grange Samworth Academy continues to make. There is still much work to do to reach the standards we aspire to but I am very excited about the future for Tudor Grange Samworth Academy. I am very proud of some notable student successes”.
Individual successes were led by Taniaomni Monuddin who achieved four Grade 9s (Maths, Science and RE and two A*s – Further Maths and Italian). James Chamberlain and Jack Watson secured Grade 8s in Science whilst Zaine Edge secured 8s in Maths and Science. Jana Rutka (Art) and Kaci-Louise Pick (English Literature) also achieved grade 8.
Mr Wilkinson added that the improving outcomes and aspirations of the school are the result of the on-going support received from parents and the local community in addition to the collaborative work with schools in the Tudor Grange family. He also commented on the commitment and skill of the school’s teaching and associate staff. ‘This is a special place to work and a special place to come to school. The high level of commitment from staff ensures our students feel cared for and supported.’
