At Smestow Academy, we are delighted that such a high proportion of our Year 11 pupils achieved some very positive results in their GCSE and BTEC qualifications. We are pleased to announce that the percentage of pupils achieving a grade 5 and above in English and Maths increased by 6% and the percentage of pupils achieving a grade 4 and above in English and Maths increased by 8% from 2019 to 2023. There has also been a 1.5 point increase in Attainment 8 headline figure when comparing 2019 and 2023.
There were some wonderful performances from A Das (2 grade 9s, 5 grade 8s and 2 grade 7s), H Mann ( 3 grade 9s, 4 grade 8s and 2 grade 7s), P Thapa ( 3 grade 9s, 3 grade 8s, 2 grade 7s and a Distinction*) and J Singh ( 3 grade 9s, 3 grade 8s, 1 grade 6, 1 grade 5 and 2 Distinction*s)
Headteacher Ian Chamberlain shared ‘We are very pleased to see an increase in the headline figures against the most comparable data from 2019. With a large proportion of our children achieving very positive results, we hope to see a greater number of them join our new 6th form provision here at Smestow, in September.’
