Djanogly Students celebrate a rise in GCSE results

Djanogly City Academy students are today celebrating beating last year’s record-breaking GCSE results.

A total of 134 students sat GCSEs this year. The pass rate has risen to 58% compared to 51% last year.

Several students achieved a new grade 9 and high pass rates in the new reformed GCSEs including science, history and geography, demonstrating the hard work and dedication of staff and students alike.

For the second year running, 99% of students achieved a pass in science, and the percentage of students gaining a grade 4 (C grade) or above in geography and history are the highest the school has ever achieved.

While 75% of students have English as a second language, 78% of students gained a grade 4 or above in GCSE English.

Damian Belshaw, Head of School, Djanogly City Academy, said: I am very proud of our students and want to congratulate them on their success. They have shown great commitment, determination and resilience, as we strive for excellence in everything that we do.”

The academy, on Gregory Boulevard, was awarded the second highest grading by Ofsted this year when it was judged ‘good’ by the education watchdog in May 2018.

Mr Belshaw was part of the leadership team that joined the academy in 2014 and helped to turn it around after Ofsted placed it in special measures.

He added: “I would like to thank staff, parents, the governing body, Djanogly Learning Trust and Nova Education Trust, who provided school improvement support during this journey, for their commitment and support as we celebrate another major academic milestone for our students.”
