Students at APS are celebrating yet another year of excellent GCSE results. Well over half of the results recorded by students at the school were 9 to 7 grades. Within this 18% acheived grade 9s and 33% grade 8.
This represents a phenomenal return on the efforts of both the students and staff throughout the duration of the courses
APS students consistently perform significantly better than national expectations for attainment and progress. list
Examination results were awarded differently in 2020 and 2021 and the examination watchdog Ofqual warned that “Schools’ and colleges’ results are highly likely to be lower than in 2021 when exams did not go ahead. Very few schools or colleges, if any, will get higher results than in 2021”. It seems that our students didn’t get that memo and have bucked the trend achieving higher in 2022 than they did in 2021.
Attainment 8 has increased up to 62.8 and we expect Progress 8 to remain high. Both indicators are outstanding. This shows that our young people do better by attending Alexandra Park than if they went elsewhere. Many pupils gained outstanding results. More than a third of our students gained at least 5 GCSEs at these top grades and of particular note are the 28 students who achieved 5 or more grade 9s. Progress has been a key focus this year and has been exemplified by the terrific performance of so many of our students
Headteacher, Michael McKenzie, said "APS is a high performing school. We are very proud of the achievements of the students this year. We are delighted with the results that the students have achieved. Like all schools, students and staff have had to step up to the challenge of the more rigorous and demanding qualifications and the further challenges of lockdowns. As with all the work we do – staff approached this earnestly and professionally. We are particularly proud of how well the school meets the needs of all its students from the most-able students to those with significant needs. We demonstrate clearly the success of comprehensive education.
“This is based on the simple but effective formula of high quality courses, taught well by expert staff, to hard-working students supported effectively by their families and our community."
“It is clear from these results that students can thrive in the learning environment that staff cultivate at Alexandra Park School. We are matching students to the correct courses whilst retaining a broad and balanced curriculum that opens doors for the next stage in their lives. We are looking forward to continuing those relationships with the students who join us into our successful Sixth Form. For all the students, however, I would like to congratulate them on their success and wish them the very best for their futures.”
