Congratulations to our incredible Year 11 students on their achievements this year. Studying for GCSE examinations is a challenging undertaking but the class of 2021 have navigated academic rigour in a global pandemic.
As we reflect upon their time with us, we are filled with immense pride. The strength, resilience and fortitude demonstrated by these young people is something to behold. It is qualities such as these which will take them far and we have no doubt that our students are moving on to bright futures.
Despite the challenges they have faced, our students have been able to demonstrate their excellent skills and knowledge in their assessed work. 84% of our Year 11 students have achieved/exceeded their target grades, with 51% of our students achieving 5 grade 9-5 GCSE passes, including Maths and English, and 76% of our students achieving 5 grade 9-4 GCSE passes including Maths and English. There are so many students who have achieved outstanding results and individual success and we are extremely proud of them all.
We are overjoyed that so many of our students are returning to study a range of A level and BTEC qualifications with us in our sixth form. Max Denning was incredibly happy with his nine grade 9s and one grade 8 with Elena Cain collecting seven grade 9s and three grade 8s, both are looking forward to the challenge of sixth form here at EMS6. Twins Ellen and Sophie Bradley managed to secure six grade 9s, eight grade 8s and six grade 7s between them and are overjoyed at the prospect of studying a further two years at EMS6 together. Other top achievers Leona Slaughter with eight grade 9s and two grade 8s and Freya Howe with seven grade 9s and three grade 8s.
It was all smiles for Harvey Cornforth, Charlotte Hamilton, David Swift as they collectively achieved an outstanding six grade 9s, nine grade 8s, six grade 7s and six grade 6s. Whilst Harvey and Charlotte are moving on to pastures new, David plans on joining his stepsister, Sarah Jayne Conning at The English Martyrs Sixth Form College after she also achieved outstanding results: eight grade 9s, one grade 8 and one grade 7.
Another two students joining EMS6 are Millie Addison who picked up six grade 9s and four grade 8s and Sam Duong who was very pleased with his five grade 9s, two grade 8s, one grade 7 and one grade 6. Sam is looking forward to studying Maths and Further Maths as part of his course choices in September.
Joel Holvey, who was a member of our Improtech Elite Football Academy, has joined Rotherham United and achieved nine grade 5+ at GCSE. We wish him every success in what we are sure will be a successful football career.
After overcoming many challenges and with the help and support of our teachers and support staff, Kristian Emmerson leaves us to study at the College of Further Education after achieving one grade 9, grade 4 in both Maths and English Language, grades 5 and 4 in Combined Science and a grade 3 in English Literature. We wish him every success.
A special mention must go to two students who joined us in Year 11, Hallie Bennison and Daniell Ong. They excelled in their time with us and achieved 14 GCSEs at grade 4+ between them.
Headteacher Stephen Hammond said: “We are extremely proud of all of our students. I want to take this opportunity to thank the students and staff for all of their hard work throughout their time at our school and I wish them good luck in the future”.
