Incredible Results at Five Acres high school
We are celebrating record results at Five Acres High School, building on what were excellent results last year. Our very positive progress in 2019 should put the school in the top performing 10% of schools in the country in terms of progress.
Last years +0.26 was well above the national average. With this year’s results provisionally standing at +0.55 we are set to move up the rankings even further, become one of the most improved schools in the country and achieve progress for each child which is within touching distance of the top schools in the SW.
Headteacher Ian Frost said: We are so delighted for our Y11 pupils who have performed exceptionally through hard work and dedication throughout their time with us. My thanks to our brilliant team of teaching and support staff for their excellent work this year, and of course to all of our parents for their terrific support throughout our children’s time with us. Our aspiration is that our students will have ‘a better chance of success than if they attended any other school.’ This momentum shows our fantastic community is getting the quality of school that they deserve.
Deputy Headteacher Stephen Derry said “What a fantastic year and what an absolute privilege to be working at Five Acres. The Year 11 students worked so hard throughout the year and achieved a phenomenal set of results. Constant commitment, dedication and a desire to succeed was evident from all students, staff and families involved. Bring on the next year!”
Deputy Headteacher Simon Phelps said “Once again we are incredibly proud of our summer results. All abilities have achieved incredibly well with over 80% of students exceeding their government set targets. What is great about the way the school is moving is that these outcomes are now expected by students and the local community. This gives us every confidence going forward to deliver year after year. We are building a legacy for all here at Five Acres and it is great to be part of such a thriving community of learners.”
