DE WARENNE ACADEMY – RESULTS CONTINUE TO CLIMB!
The sun came out at De Warenne Academy to celebrate students and staff achieving record breaking results once again. Students in this year group have worked hard in understandably challenging circumstances, yet a total of 48 grade 9s or distinction *s were awarded across a range of subjects including English, maths, science, geography, history, art, construction, hospitality and catering, performing arts, sport studies and health and social care. Overall, 67% of students gained a grade 4 in English and maths and 43% achieved a grade 5, surpassing the results from last year and being the “best ever results” for the fifth consecutive year.
Understandably, the implications of Covid-19 created a number of difficulties for parents, students and staff this academic year. But, in the face of adversity, these year 11 students have worked consistently well (and remotely) to achieve these fantastic results. It just goes to show what can be achieved when difficulty and hard times are thrust upon us.
Principal, Anna Rooney said “The Class of 2021 is particularly special to me because we started at De Warenne Academy together five years ago. I am delighted to see how well they have done during this time and will miss them very much. The outcomes achieved today are testament to the hard work of our talented students, inspired by committed teachers and supportive parents. I know they will go from strength to strength and wish them every future success”.
