At Arc School Old Arley, the year 11s have been taking the ECDL ICT course which would give them the equivalent of a GCSE qualification. Students are required to pass 4 exams to complete the course. Harry has really taken this on board and put in lots of his own time to get the results he wants. He has accessed revision websites and videos to help him with the revision of the exam questions and was extremely delighted to find that all his hard work paid off. Harry has secured a Distinction* which is equal to a GCSE Grade A*. The rest of the Year 11s are also on the way to completing this course with good results. Well done Harry!!!!

Head Teacher, Wendy Sanders said: "These results are a great achievement for the pupils at Old Arley and we’re thrilled they have all done so well. We have worked really hard with the young people on careers options and everyone has a place at college – the courses which these qualifications will help them access are really diverse and include countryside management and game keeping, hairdressing and ICT and Engineering, to name but a few!
“Our aim is to always work individually with each child to make sure they are given every chance to reach their potential.
“As well as GCSEs and Functional Skills our students also achieved nationally recognised qualifications including Duke of Edinburgh Award Silver Awards as well as those in food studies and music. Those who sat the Statistics GCSE did it over just a year and achieved very high grades. We couldn’t be more proud of each and every one of them.”
