Students at Kingswinford Academy Celebrate Strong Set of GCSE Results

24th August 2023

Students at Kingswinford Academy, located on Water Street, are celebrating today after receiving their GCSE results. 

After much hard work studying and preparing, students at Kingswinford Academy, which is part of Windsor Academy Trust, are collecting a set of strong GCSE results as national grading returns to pre-pandemic levels.

In a year where outcomes, nationally, have returned to 2019 levels, attainment and average points scores are in line with previous years - a testament to the hard work of the students and staff at Kingswinford Academy . 

Standout results include, English, where 67% students achieved a strong pass at grade 9 - 5 (national 55.1%); Art, where 96% achieved a grade 9 - 4; and French, where 87% students achieved a grade 9 - 4. 

Kingswinford Academy students are now looking forward to progressing onto their chosen further education institutions. 

While all pupils have done incredibly well, there are some standout individual achievements. These include: 

  • Oliver Fisher, who achieved eight grade 9s and one grade 8; 
  • Neena Iddrisu who achieved seven grade 9s and two grade 8s; 
  • Chantelle Gondo achieved six grade 9s, two grade 8s and one grade 7.

“I’m really proud of my achievements. They are proof that if you try really hard and put in every effort, you can accomplish anything you put your mind to. I’m looking forward to going to King Ed’s and continuing my studies.”

“I’m really really proud of my achievements - particularly science as I’ve never achieved a double 9 in science before. I want to give thanks to my friends, family and to God and I look forward to continuing my studies at King Ed’s next year.” 

Neena Iddrisu said:

“I just can’t believe that this is happening. Nothing feels better than when all my hard work pays off. I’ve had so much support from my teachers, my friends and my family.  I can’t wait to see what the future brings.”
