UAW GCSE Results 2017 -
GCSE students at University Academy Warrington (UAW) have plenty to celebrate across the board. We are delighted to report an increase in the percentage of students achieving the equivalent of a grade C or above in Mathematics and the percentage of students obtaining a grade C or above in English still remains strong.
Alongside this, results in other subjects show a continued improvement compared to their performance at A*-C last year. The number of students obtaining a grade A* and A (or equivalent) has also increased.
Among the many individual successes are:
• Holly Cain, who achieved one grade 9, one grade A*, one grade 8, three grade As and three grade Bs. Using the new criteria Holly also obtained a grade 9 (equivalent to an A**) in her English which means she has performed in line with the top 2% of students in the country.
• Bryn Mitchell, who achieved one grade A*, one grade 8 and a further three subjects at grade A.
• Abigail Jones, who achieved one grade A* and a further four subjects at grade A.
• Kirsty Wareing, who achieved one grade A* and a further three subjects at grade A.
Principal, Mrs Misia Barclay, said: “This is an exceptional set of results and our students should be very proud of their achievements. I am delighted that they have risen to the national changes in exams and we have a number of students who obtained a grade 9 or 8 which is equivalent to an A** or an A*. Our continued success is down to the partnership between the students, their teachers, support staff and parents/carers – a big ‘thank you’ to all involved. All staff, teaching and support, wish all our students continued success as they embark on the next stage in their education or training.”
