Yewlands Academy is celebrating its best ever GCSE results, which are up 15% on last year's. 5A*-C including English and Maths are 51%: English achieved 67%, 5% above the national average. Our total number of entries graded at A*/A is almost double that of last year.
7% of our students gained 5 or more A*/A; 21% gained 5 or more A*- B and 53% gained 5 or more A*- C. 5A*- C including English, maths and science has increased by 12% and with two sciences by 14%. Three levels progress in English is up from 50 - 64% and in maths from 49 - 51%.
Yewlands formally joined the Outstanding Wakefield City Academies Trust earlier this year, having worked in partnership with them from September 2013. The new Principal Susan Cousin said "These results are a credit to the hardworking and talented students and staff and the support of our parents. They are exactly what we predicted and are well-deserved." 100% of year 11 students have gained progression to their chosen place of further study or employment. Congratulations to them all.
