A massive well done to our GCSE maths and English resit students, who are celebrating some fabulous results.

Overall, 42 per cent of English students achieved a grade 4 or above, a fantastic increase of 20 per cent compared to last year.

In maths, 20 per cent of students achieved a grade 4 or above, down two per cent on last year, against a national backdrop of an eight per cent decrease compared to 2023 and a 16 percent decrease on pre-pandemic 2019.

Tess Cole, Vice Principal for Foundation and Adult Learning Services, described the results as a ‘fantastic achievement’ for our resit students and said a big well done to our inspirational maths and English lecturers.

“A great deal of work has already been done and we’ll be keeping up that momentum throughout the coming months to ensure our results continue to improve,” she added.

Bricklaying student Frank Markham (pictured with his delighted English lecturer Emma MacNally) achieved a grade 4 in English. "I am so pleased with this result," he said.

Here’s what some of our other successful resit students had to say:

Zach Abrahm: “I’m so happy I got a 4 in maths. I can now start my apprenticeship.”

Thomas Christou (maths): “Big up to John and Roz for helping me out in the long journey, I got there in the end!”

Charlie Lee (English): “I can’t believe I got a grade 6, I’m so happy!”
