Ark Academy celebrate their GCSE successes

Thursday 12 August 2021

After two years of disruption our wonderful Year 11 achieved many fabulous outcomes. Their achievements are totally deserved. The quality assurance process for the GCSEs, as for ‘A’ levels and BTEC, was very rigorous based on student assessments in controlled conditions and validated by moderation across all Ark Schools.

A very happy Cyrus Walsh who had a clean sweep of grade 9’s plus an A grade in Additional Maths. Cyrus has applied himself throughout his school life and earned every one of those grades.

An equally happy Zaki Sheik with his clutch of 8’s and 9’s and B in Additional Maths. Zaki has enrolled in Ark Sixth Form to take Maths, Further Maths, Chemistry and Biology.

A tremendous set of results for Sapphire Senior Domas with 5 9’s, 2 8’s, 2 7’s, distinction in performing Arts and C grade in Additional Maths. A real all rounder, Sapphire has chosen to study ‘A’ level Biology, Psychology and Geography.

Ismael Pemberton looks quietly pleased and so he should with 5 9’s, 2 8’s, 2 7’s and A grade in Additional Maths. Ishmael has chosen Maths, Further Maths, Physics and Economics, a very popular choice.

Simrah is clearly delighted with her 3 9’s and 4 8’s plus a clutch of other good grades, she has decided to study Maths, History and Economics in Ark Academy.

As Zaki Sheikh said when asked for any further comments at enrolment, he said “None, it’s a great sixth form” and that really sums up the atmosphere today as we have had to close enrolment in all bar a few subjects.

Delia Smith, Principal, stated she is delighted with the strength of our GCSE results across the board. The students responded incredibly well to the pressure on return from lockdown in March to produce their best in the assessments.
