Congratulations Year 11 – Fantastic GCSE Results 2022
GCSE results day is finally upon us and like so many before, we have ample reason to celebrate. The UCL Academy GCSE students continue to raise the bar with a high attaining set of results, with 30% of grades at 7 or above. Students achieved above national average results in a range of subjects, including some more unique to the Academy’s curriculum such as Engineering and Mandarin.
It goes without saying that all students have endured a testing 3 years, but their determination and diligence has paved the way for these well deserved results. We would like to thank all staff and parents/carers for their hard work in supporting our students’ achievements, none of this would have been possible without your ongoing help and dedication.
Many of our Year 11 students will start the next chapter of their studies in our Sixth Form and we look forward to them returning in September and progressing towards university and future careers. For those leaving us, we wish you luck in your future endeavours and very much look forward to seeing your progression.
Co-Principals, Robin Street and Simon McBride said: “Today is about celebrating the successes of every single one of our students. In amongst the excellent grades achieved are so many students who have made exceptional progress from a range of starting points. That includes students who have joined us in recent years from abroad and others who faced a range of personal challenges outside of school. Results Days rightly celebrate individual success stories, but many of those are far more than just grades”.
