Were better than ever!
A YATE school is celebrating the best GCSE results in its history.
Yate Academy says its results put it among the best in the country for pupil progress – and the proportion of candidates achieving a grade 4 or better in English and maths is up from a half two years ago to almost three quarters.
Other schools in the area are also reporting great progress. Chipping Sodbury School hailed a series of "outstanding" results by high-achieving pupils.
And at Brimsham Green, head teacher Kim Garland has hailed a significant improvement in boys' performance after the school focussed on closing the 'achievement gap' between boys and girls, who have traditionally outperformed them at GCSE level.
