Outwood Academy Hasland Hall celebrates successful GCSE results day after ‘challenging 18 months’
The principal of Outwood Academy Hasland Hall has expressed his pride as students collect their GCSE results today.
After an extraordinary year which has seen students deal with the pandemic alongside their studies, there were scenes of joy as they collected their results at the Broomfield Avenue-based academy.
Overall there were highlights for the school, where 46 per cent of the students achieved a Grade 5 or higher in English and maths, with 74 per cent achieving Grad 4 or above.
Principal Ian Cooper said: “We are so proud of how our students have coped and adapted to the many challenges they have had to face over the last 18 months. The way the students demonstrated determination, resilience and humour has been inspirational.”
“Results day is always an important opportunity to celebrate the achievements of our young people and to wish them well as they move onto the next stage of their learning journeys.
"It is always a privilege to share the excitement as they open their envelopes. We wish them all the very best and we look forward to seeing what they achieve in the future.”
Chief Executive Principal Julie Slater said: “These fantastic results are the just rewards for the inspirational resilience and determination shown by the students, and staff, during one of the most challenging years the education sector has ever faced.
“I am beyond proud of the achievements of our students and I wish them the very best for the future. If they continue with the same work ethic as they’ve displayed over the last 12 months, I am certain they will be successful in whatever they choose to do.”
