Achievements and Results

Celebrations for Academy’s latest GCSE results 2017

Mark Hall Academy is celebrating its GCSE results for 2017.

We have been on an amazing journey over the last four years that has required a great deal of hard work.

Mrs Franceschi, Principal, said: “I took on a failing school that was 17th from bottom in the national performance league tables four years ago so to have maintained our upward trajectory and to have been given a ‘Good with outstanding behaviour’ Ofsted grading a year ago is no mean feat.

I am delighted with our provisional Progress 8 score of +0.23 from -0.08 last year as this shows how much value we have added. I am proud of our students and our hard working team of staff.”

New performance measures for GCSEs were in place this year, which means a change to the way exam results are reported.
