GCSE Results 2021
This year’s cohort achieved 52% grade 5 and above and 74% grade 4 and above in English and Maths. Both sets of figures are in line with the high standards achieved by Wingfield Academy over the last four years.
The publication of results today to our students has gone remarkably smoothly given the extraordinarily difficult and challenging background to this year’s grading. Our students at Wingfield have continued their record of excellent outcomes.
This is not accidental. It’s because our students and the staff team at Wingfield, in the absence of coherent strategic planning from the government, have worked tremendously hard to deliver a set of results which students will be able to hold up proudly knowing that they have been judged on what they can do, rather than what they cannot. They have delivered magnificently.
It is important to note that schools and academies will not be ranked in performance tables this year, but with young people needing good results to access competitive college courses, apprenticeships and employment, this year was as important to them as any other.
Finally, I would like to thank all our young people, their families and our staff for their continued support during 2020/21.
