Results day this year at St. Luke’s Academy has been awaited with great anticipation. We have been excited to see what our students have achieved across a number of GCSEs, functional skills and vocational courses.
As a specialist SEMH school, we have been absolutely bowled over by the resilience and hard work our students have demonstrated this year despite challenging times and disruption to their education.
However, due to the outstanding relationships established with staff and the embedding of a new school culture, with a particular focus on perseverance, our students have really surpassed themselves and wholeheartedly applied themselves to the vast amount of assessments they have been required to take in order to achieve these results.
We are absolutely thrilled to report that a record number of GCSEs have been achieved this year in English and Maths. In addition, Art GCSE has been achieved for the first time at the school, with one student achieving a grade 3 despite only having studied it for 1 year!
In vocational subjects, a broad range and number of qualifications have been achieved across a variety of subjects including Catering, Construction, Mechanics, Childcare and Environmental Conservation & Heritage.
A number of students have achieved more than 5 qualifications, which will ensure successful College placements and future employability.
Kelsie Williams said upon reading her results said:
“I can’t believe I have been able to achieve these grades, I thought I was going to fail! I remember being told at the start of Yr11 I could achieve over 5 qualifications and I didn’t believe it! Thanks to St. Luke’s I have changed my attitude and have now got all of these grades to show for it!”
We wish the class of 2021 all the very best for the future. We are so proud of them and look forward to hearing how their success stories continue into the future.
