Looe Community Academy is pleased to report some outstanding achievements by our students in their GCSEs and other qualifications this summer. Once again over 70% of students achieved a grade 4 in both English and Maths and just under 70% achieved 5 GCSEs or equivalent qualifications at that level. Over 30% of students achieved at least one qualification at grade 7 or above, equivalent to the old grade A.
This year, following the cancellation of exams, grades were awarded through a process of teacher assessed grades, against a national standard and approved and awarded by the exam boards. This was a very rigorous and challenging process the outcomes of which our students should be extremely delighted. The government is not publishing performance data for any schools or colleges this year due to the varying impact of the pandemic.
Scott Yalden, Headteacher said “We are immensely proud of all the work and achievements of our students, especially after such a difficult and disrupted year. These students only commenced their courses a few months before the pandemic began. Our teachers and support staff have worked tirelessly to ensure students are all able to progress onto further education and study, and we look forward to seeing what they will achieve in the future.”
