Queensbury Academy celebrated significant improvement across the board as students opened their GCSE results on Thursday.

Just under three quarters (74%) of pupils gained A*-C grades in English and 64% managed an A*-C in Maths– a 9% rise on last year’s results.

In all 56% of students received A*-C grades in both subjects.

Pupils achieving the most impressive set of results included Elayna Jennings (eight A*, one A, one B, one C), Sophie Gooding (three A*, five As, one B, one C), Katie McAleese (three A*, four As, three B grades), Kirsty Spicer (three A*, five As, two Bs, two Cs), Freja Baldock (two A*, six As, two Bs, one C) and Maddie Crossley (two A*, seven As, two Bs).

Principal Olly Button said: “Congratulations to Year 11 for another great set of results, we look forward to welcoming you back into our sixth form in September.

“Thanks to all our staff who have worked hard to ensure that every student achieves their very best.”
