Staff and students at Bower Park Academy are delighted with the 2019 examination results, which are the best in the school’s history and show a significant improvement on the previous year’s results. The percentage of students achieving grade 5 or above in both English and Maths has more than doubled compared to 2018.
Similar significant improvements have been achieved in Science, Modern Foreign Languages, Geography and Drama, with all subjects improving their results compared to 2018. Katie Braybrook, Izabella Clarke, Jaime Coates, Alice Compton, Krischa Gonzales, Lois Ryott, Adam Sabri and Michelle Ssevume achieved exceptionally well, with eight or more subjects at grade 7 or better, while Oliver Aldred-Regan, Kirsten Bende, Caitlin Chambers, Megan Smith and David White all showed excellent progress compared to their KS2 test scores.
The Academy’s Principal, Stuart McLaughlin said, “Since joining the Empower Learning Academy Trust, Bower Park has been on a trajectory of rapid improvement. This year’s results reflect this progress and the hard work of both our students and my dedicated and committed staff. Above all, I am pleased that the majority of our students have achieved results that will set them up for success, not only in their next stage of learning, but also their adult lives. I am so proud of their achievements and wish them luck for the future.”
