Kedleston Group is pleased to announce the 2016-17 exam results for students across our residential and day schools.
We’re delighted to announce that across the company’s seven secondary schools, pupils achieved a range of qualifications with more than 225 separate achievements recorded for students across more than 90 different qualifications on offer.
Pupils were celebrating successes in GCSEs, with these qualifications comprising 31.5% of the exams being passed by students. Of those, a fifth of them being A*-C grades.
Dr Lynda Mitchell, Director of Quality and Compliance (Education), said: “I am delighted with these results.
“Our students have worked extremely hard and their teachers have provided excellent support to each individual to enable them to achieve what they need to take their next steps in education, work or training.
“Each of our leavers has achieved on average 6 qualifications this year, and our 39 leavers have achieved 67 English and 43 mathematics qualifications between them, in addition to other GCSE passes in science, ICT, human health and physiology, sociology, DT, preparation for working life, art and photography.
“There are a wide range of over 90 different qualifications chosen by each individual student according to their individual goals, aims and desires, ranging from more traditional subjects such as health and social care through to equine studies, lifesaving and indoor climbing.
“This year there are also an increasing number and range of vocational qualifications achieved as individual aspirations are upheld and this enables a variety of progression routes including further vocational study or employment.
All our leavers have secured placements in education training or employment this year as last year, and we wish them all the very best for the future.”
Kedleston operates schools which provide educational settings for young people with social, emotional and mental health difficulties. Many of the students supported by the schools have experienced significant challenges during their education and in many cases, have been out of education for months or years before coming to a Kedleston School.
The schools are focused on helping young people achieve the skills they need to succeed when they leave school, getting them ready for further education and the workplace.
Chief Operating Officer, Lee Reed said: “The achievements of these young people should make them extremely proud. We have seen one young man who was told he would never even sit an exam in previous settings achieve GCSEs, including a B Grade, we have also seen vocational success with young people setting a firm foundation on which they can continue to build their success.
“These results are to be applauded and celebrated whether they are in GCSE, Functional Skills and Duke of Edinburgh to name just a few. Each and every one is a great achievement.”
Kedleston has a range of residential and day schools across the UK and pupils from High Peak School in Cheshire, Olsen House School in Liverpool, Wings School Cumbria, Wings School Nottingham, Arc Schools Ansley and Old Arley in Warwickshire, and Leaways School in London all sat a range of GCSE examinations and alternatives in a range of subjects.
