New GCSEs: Parent Guide to Results Click Here
After months of rumour and counter rumour and last minute changes in government policy, students at The Macclesfield Academy were delighted to finally receive their GCSE results today.
Speaking about the students and their results, Mr Richard Hedge, Headteacher said, “From the day this cohort joined us five years ago, we have known they were a remarkable bunch of young people. When their last year at the Academy was so cruelly cut short by the Coronavirus pandemic and the school closures back in March, we were worried that the exam system would not do them justice. We began a rigorous process of checking and double checking our assessments of the grades they would have been most likely to have achieved if teaching, learning and examining had continued as planned. We had every confidence in them but rather less in the infamous “Ofqual algorithm”. We are delighted that their results reflect their ability and the hard work they had all put in. We are also delighted that, almost without exception, they will now be progressing to either A level courses at one of our partner 11-18 schools or vocational programmes at Macclesfield College. We wish them well.
“In this year’s exceptional circumstances and in line with other schools in Cheshire East, we will not be publishing “headline” data or individual student grades. We do, however, want to congratulate Ben Ward, Sarah Lam, Brendan Goodwin, Hannah Whyte, Jack van Vliet, Rosie Wood, Charlie Jackson, David Wolff, Elliot Wiss, Emily Tuson, Will Harrison, Izzy Hooley, Ryan Bradley and Will Rowson who have achieved outstanding grades across a wide range of subjects. We also want to celebrate the hard work and achievements of Sophie Halsall, Holly Reid, Emma Cooper, Olivia Weir Hodges, Sam Moss, Ellie Howarth and Charlie Wiss whose progress from their starting points in Year 7 has been quite remarkable. For every single one of our students though, we are delighted that the uncertainties of the last few months have come to an end and know that they can look forward to the future with confidence.
