We had a serious amount of soil to shift today - but they did it! Both raised beds are now full and one is planted with potatoes. More new recruits have arrived and everyone was happy to take home a tomatoe plant to nurture 🍅 https://t.co/v3WiLcEElh

Exam Results

GCSE 2020 Results

At Robert Barclay Academy, students and staff continue to rise to the challenge of the more demanding 9-1 GCSEs.  The percentage of students who attained a secure pass i.e. 9-4 in both English and Maths showed a further 5% increase on last year (up to 67%).  Since the school became an Academy, we have seen a 27% rise in the percentage of students attaining a 9-4 in both English and Maths. Other outstanding departmental successes included: GCSE Spanish (100% Grade 4 or higher), ICT (100% Grade 4 or higher), GCSE Photography (97% Grade 4 or higher), GCSE Media (90% grade 4 or higher) and Sport and PE (92% Grade 4 or higher).

Ced de la Croix, Headteacher, commented that “We are extremely proud of our students and their GCSE results are a testament to their hard work and those of their teachers and parents, particularly in this most difficult of years. It has certainly been an uncertain time recently for schools and more importantly for the examination students themselves. GCSE results aside, behind all the stats and grades we have lots of amazing students and some fantastic individual stories of talent and success’.

Of particular note of success were Harvey Durkin who achieved Grade 9s in English Language, English Literature, Maths, History, Biology, Chemistry, Physics, and Spanish . Katherine Hindlaugh (pictured with mum) achieved Grade 9 in English Language, English Literature, Maths, Grade 8 in Spanish, History, Art, Physics, and Grade 7 in Chemistry and Biology. Angel O’Callaghan achieved a Grade 9 in English Literature, English Language, RE, Food Technology, Grade 8 in History, Drama, Grade 6 in Physics and Grade 5 in Chemistry, Biology and Maths.
