Academic excellence continues at Landau Forte College Derby

|

Students and staff at Landau Forte College are celebrating another strong set of GCSE results today.

The percentage of students achieving a grade 4 or above in both English and maths, using the new 1-9 measures, was 72%.

For English alone, 84% of students gained a 4 or above – equivalent to the old ‘C’ grade – and 77% achieved the same for maths. This remains in line with the strong improvements on the equivalent measure that the College achieved in 2016.

More students also achieved the top grades of A* or A, or 7-9; this figure increased 10 percentage points from 18% in 2016 to 28% this summer.

Among the College’s top performers were:

  • Lewis Richardson who achieved three grade 9s, three A* and three A grades
  • Jagveer Dhadli who achieved a 7, 8 and 9 grade, four A*s,  one A grade and an A in AS level statistics
  • Ruby Holyoak who achieved one grade 9, two grade 8s, five A*s and one A grade
  • Paris MacKenzie who achieved two grade 7s, one grade 8, five A*s and one A grade
  • Harry Madden who achieved one grade 9, two grade 7s, two A*s, 3 A grades and an A in AS level statistics
  • Harleen Jandu who achieved two grade 9s, one grade 8, three A*s, one A grade, one Distinction and a B in AS level statistics

Alison Brannick, Principal, said:

“Our students can take genuine pride in their results today as a fitting reward for all their hard work and dedication over the past two years. Thanks are also due to staff across the College, whose efforts and ongoing support have really made a difference in the achievements and aspirations of our students.

“I am particularly pleased that the results show more of our students are gaining the top grades at GCSE, as we continue to encourage every one of them to exceed expectations and achieve the very best outcomes. We look forward to welcoming the vast majority of them back to our Sixth Form in September, which, as we saw with last week’s A Level results, continues to prepare our students for entry into the country’s very best universities including Oxbridge and those in the Russell Group.”
