Record GCSE Results Achieved by Castle Manor Students

Students at Castle Manor Academy in Haverhill are celebrating their highest ever GCSE results today with 62% of students reaching the new threshold of a level 4 in Maths and English.

These headline figures show a continued rapid rise in Castle Manor’s results with a significant increase of 16% on the comparative A*-C grades last year.

Delighted headteacher Vanessa Whitcombe paid tribute to students, staff and parents and said the results were incredibly strong in a year when schools have had to deal with many changes in the exams.

She added: “I am absolutely thrilled with the results at Castle Manor Academy.

“They are testament of a huge amount of hard work by the students whose dedication and commitment has earned them the results they deserve.

“I am extremely proud of all of them and they will have very bright futures. Such a rapid increase in results is testament also to the hard work and support from staff and parents and I want to take the opportunity to thank them.

“Castle Manor Academy has seen many changes over the past two years, aimed at improving standards in the school.

“These results are an indicator that our strategies are having a strong and measurable impact. We are absolutely committed to continue this journey of improvement in the coming years.”

Students have achieved excellent results in a wide range of subjects such as triple science, English literature, PE, photography, business, health and social care and dance.

Students will be continuing their studies at sixth forms such as Samuel Ward Academy, Long Road and Hills Road, and at West Suffolk College and Cambridge Regional College.

Dr Tim Coulson, Chief Executive of the Samuel Ward Academy Trust said: “These are the first results since the school joined the Trust and we are delighted to see such an excellent improvement. Many congratulations to pupils and staff.”
