The Macclesfield Academy, whose exam results in 2015 scooped a national award, have gone one step further and posted their best ever results. Staff and students celebrated as the record breaking results were opened and 61% of students were found to have achieved 5 A*-C passes with maths and English in 2016.
Headteacher, Richard Hedge commented, “Once again we are delighted by what our students have achieved. Over the last five years we have proved beyond doubt that a small school offering a personalised curriculum and an enriched experience in a welcoming community can empower its students to scale remarkable heights- whatever their starting point. Last year we were proud to receive an educational outcomes award for the progress our students made.
“On results day in August 2016 it is always invidious to single out individuals but special mention must be made of the achievements of Maxwell Gilliver, Emily Lyons, Dylan Smith, Ellie Hall, Lily Moores, Tristan Staszko, Shoni Rae, Natasha Boden and Theo Pemberton who all gained at least 5 passes at A and A* and, especially of Rosie Gunter and Joseph Richardson who both gained a remarkable 12 GCSEs at this level. In addition, Emily Lyons, Harry Orson, Karolina Minkina, Ryan Davenport, Dylan Smith, Liam Davenport, Hannah Melbourne, Beth Poirette, Sian White, India Campbell, Joe Ratcliffe and Autumn Brown all made outstanding progress from their different starting points and should be congratulated on the outcome of five years’ sustained hard work.”
In October 2015 we were delighted when the publication of the “Progress 8” analysis by the Department for Education showed that Academy students had, once again, made faster progress from their starting points in Year 7 than those anywhere in Cheshire East.
