The new GCSE framework has now been implemented and the syllabus for all subjects have changed both in terms of topics covered, the amount of material, and the level of difficulty. In some subjects the content that was previously AS level is now in the new GCSEs. There is no longer any coursework element, and all exams are now taken at the end of Year 11 with no modules being sat during the course. And finally, the grading of GCSEs are now numbers (9-1). An indication of the equivalences to the old system can be seen below:

Once again, Hayle Academy is proud to congratulate students on the achievement of this year’s GCSE cohort. It was a great pleasure on results day to see the smiles and celebrations as the students opened their results envelopes to see the outcome of their hard work.  All of their achievements are remarkable and are the product of their commitment over five years of studying. The look of surprise at their own accomplishments is always followed by pride, followed by thanks and gratitude towards the staff for their hard work and support.  

Coping with the intensity and pressures of studies and the resilience they have to show over a long period of time along with the adverse circumstances some students have to overcome, is a credit to the students. It is a real tribute to them, the staff and parents who support them, to boost their confidence and motivate them to prove to themselves that they can achieve. The impact of these results will provide them with the opportunity to progress onto the courses they want and they all walk away with a great foundation of knowledge to build on in whichever career pathway they choose.  

As an Academy we have achieved the highest number of grade 8 and 9’s and increased achievements have been seen in most subject areas. A special mention to our English, maths, languages, geography and trilogy science who have surpassed last years results. Many students exceeded their targets with a number achieving sets of results all above grade 5.
