GCSE Results 2014 - A Message from the Principal
I am delighted for the students and staff of Westbourne, who have worked unbelievably hard to achieve these record results. The scale of the improvement is exceptional. More students than ever before leave Westbourne with a fantastic set of qualifications, achieved at a time when GCSEs are the most demanding they have ever been.
The percentage of students achieving 5 GCSE passes between A*-C including English and mathematics rose from 31 to 51.5% this year. That breaks the school record by 10%. The rate of progress our students have made, from the day they arrived to the day they left us has risen massively; expected progress in English is up from 37 to 67.9 and maths from 59 to 64.
In our first full year of being an Academy we are delighted to see such positive outcomes. We talk here about learning to make a difference. I hope that these students now go onto the next stage of their lives armed with the confidence and the qualifications to go ahead and make that positive difference in society.
Mr Dave Lee-Allan
