Delighted pupils celebrated their GCSE success this year on 25th August 2016. Improvements were made in 13 subject areas and the school achieved our highest ever English GCSE results. This reflects all the positive work that happens on a day to day basis.
The 2016 results reflected a culmination of the commitment of all the Governors, staff, parents and carers along with the determination of the pupils. Several pupils achieved in excess of 11 GCSE qualifications. Pictured are pupils who achieved the highest grades and those who made the most progress from Key Stage 2 to Key Stage 4, including KT who achieved 10 grade As. Our pupils will now embark on the next phase of their education with confidence. Pupils who attend the academy fully understand the importance of education and are fully prepared both through attitude and determination.
Our aim is always to raise aspirations amongst staff and pupils. This emphasis has been a key ingredient in our improvement and we look forward to this continuing in the future.
Lord Derby Academy is a first choice school of which the local community can be very proud.
