Key Stage 5 Results
Thursday 15 August 2019
Walworth Academy is delighted to announce exceptional results at Key Stage 5 this year, recognising the hard work students put into their qualifications and the unwavering support they’ve received from staff and families to that end. We are incredibly proud of our cohort!
Individual success stories include Ope Adegunodo, who achieved three A* grades in maths, physics and Economics in addition to a further A grade in his Extended Project qualification (EPQ). Ope is considering places at both Imperial University and Cambridge University – we can see why they’d want him! Jack Burt achieved similarly remarkable results with his A* grades in physics, maths and A grades in Chemistry and the EPQ; he takes up his place in the autumn at the University of Cambridge to study Natural Sciences. Alice Burton is making the next step of her journey at Queen Mary University of London, having secured an impressive suite of grades in Social Sciences grades in to gain a place on the very competitive English course. She will be joined by Rehana Akhtar who enrols on the Psychology course at the same university, having secured two A grades and a B – a fantastic success by all.
Results across the piece were very strong indeed, with highlights including 27% of students achieving the elite A*/A grades in Psychology and 28% securing the top grades in Economics. Outcomes for Science were notably high with physics in particular achieving a stunning 40% of all results at A* and A. All of these scores are well in excess of national averages and are a testament to the hard work of students and staff. Results for the new Btec courses, featuring increased rigour, are also are phenomenal with an astonishing 88% of all units awarded at Distinction level.
As ever, we are hugely grateful to all within the Walworth Academy family for their support of the school and its young people. We offer our sincere congratulations to all students and are excited to hear of the next steps on their journeys through our Alumni work. Well done and good luck to all!
