GCSE success at South Nottinghamshire Academy

GCSE students at South Nottinghamshire Academy have secured fantastic results in 2016 and have been rewarded for their hard work and efforts. The results overall have significantly improved on those secured in 2015.

Many individual Year 11 students secured remarkable results including Freya Giles (pictured below) who gained 11 A*s and 1 A grade. She said “I’m absolutely ecstatic about my results; I hardly could have imagined achieving such good grades in every subject, so I’m incredibly proud and relieved that the work and effort that all my teachers and I put in over the past years has paid off!”

GCSE headline figures include:

  • 74% of students secured at least 1 x A*-A grade
  • 3 levels of progress English = 73% (+20% from 2015). 4 levels of progress English = 52% (+36% from 2015 and 22% above the 2015 national average)
  • 3 levels of progress Maths = 61% (+8% from 2015)
  • 64% of students secured A*-C in English and Maths. This has the potential to rise over the next few weeks.
  • The percentage of students gaining Ebacc recognition (A*-C in English, Maths, Science, Humanities and Modern foreign Languages) increased by 4% and is 2% above the 2015 national average.
  • 99% of students gained 8 or more GCSE or equivalent qualifications.


Individual subject areas continue to thrive and many were able to sustain and improve on previous high standards:

  • Chemistry                                          100% A*-C
  • Music                                                100% A*-C
  • Biology                                               96% A*-C
  • Physics                                              96% A*-C
  • Physical Education                         90% A*-C
  • German                                              88% A*-C
  • Media Studies                                  87% A*-C
  • English Language & Literature     76% A*-C
  • Maths                                                 71% A*-C


For the majority of our GCSE students, the transition to SNA Sixth Form has already started and staff are looking forward to welcoming them back as Year 12 students.

Dan Philpotts (Headteacher) commented that this group of students has been a pleasure to work with and it is extremely gratifying to see them rewarded for their perseverance and resilience. With our move into our brand new £10 million build in September 2016, we are extremely confident that in future years, the Academy will move from strength to strength. Congratulations to you all”
