Our record breaking Class of 2016 (71% A*-C in Maths and English) came back to The Oakwood Academy to receive their GCSE certificates on Thursday 10th November. It was a real honour to celebrate their achievements. Subject leaders awarded individual subject prizes to students who performed particularly well in their subject area. For example Rebecca received the subject prize for girls' PE. She attained 100% in the written GCSE examination and her exam paper has been selected for use by the examination board.
The evening also provided the opportunity to recognise the outstanding achievements of Sian, who achieved 12A* grades and Emily who achieved 10A* grades and made the most progress since leaving Primary School. Both these students now attend Bilborough College and Emily has been selected to participate in a Cambridge University programme.
Several of the Class of 2016 are now studying at the Redhill Sixth Form and it was great to hear how well they have settled into sixth form life. We also heard of students who have successfully secured apprenticeships and are now on the road to securing a good career.
Our thanks go to all the parents who attended the evening and for their support over the last five years. We wish every student from the Class of 2016 good luck, and hope they will keep us informed of their future successes.
