Students, parents and staff attended Goole Academy on Thursday 25th August to collect their GCSE results for this academic year.  This year saw the return of the first examinations since 2019 which placed some extra emphasis on this occasion. 

Principal Julian Harrison said, β€˜We are extremely proud of the results our students have achieved today. They have faced serious challenges and uncertainty over the last 2 years.  They have overcome the disruption caused by the pandemic and we have been delighted with their response.’

The percentage of students achieving a grade 4 in English and Maths increased to 68%. The percentage of students achieving a grade 5 in English and Maths increased to 51%.

He went on to say, β€˜Despite the obvious challenges during the pandemic, our students have shown resilience, tenacity and determination and have gone on to achieve the best results ever seen at Goole Academy.’

There were countless individual successes on the day.  The top academic performers this year were Lyn Xu, Oliver Ruhmann and Ellie Vines.  These students gained a range of top grades across their chosen subjects.  Other students performed exceptionally well against their targets.  These included Adam Baker, Ella Clarkson, Nicole Gmyrek, Ben Gelder, Lauren Hobson, Jess Millar, Oliwia Napieraj and Bobby Reed.

The results place the students in the best position to move forward and gives them every possible chance of achieving success in their future.  We would like to thank our staff and parents/carers who have continued to strive to improve outcomes for our children through challenging circumstances; these results are a team effort. We are all very proud of the transformation that has occurred at Goole Academy in the last 4 years.
