We are pleased to inform you that once again, the exiting Year 11 received a very strong set of GCSE results this year, with a further increase in the number of children attaining 5 or more A*-C GCSEs (50%), against a national decline in pass rates.
We are especially pleased with the very good levels of progress made by pupils across a wide range of subjects where the overwhelming majority of pupils met aspirational targets with significant numbers exceeding targets. The subjects include the core areas of English, maths, triple sciences, RE, sociology, French (and ‘home’ languages), geography, PE, art, performing arts and business.
It was a pleasure to see the pupils proud to receive their results in August and to know that they are all able to access their chosen pathways with confidence. These outcomes are a credit to the children, their families and staff team for all their hard work and support over the year.
With three A*s, five A’s, two B’s, a Distinction* and a Distinction, Chanelle Johnstone, who was awarded the Governors Award at our Presentation Afternoon in July, also had a very successful morning.
“I have been waiting all summer for my results and I am very happy with them. I did really well and gained the grades I wanted”.
Chanelle was impressed with her results, and when speaking about her revision schedule, she said “During my time at Carr Manor, I attended after school revision, used MyMaths, BBC Bitesize, cue cards and watched YouTube videos. I also took short breaks when revising at home to help me process the information. My advice to new Year 11’s would be to start revising right now, it’s all worth it!”
Chanelle plans on studying chemistry, biology and maths at Roundhay School’s Sixth Form.
Sanjay Bharath was another high achiever, as he obtained one A*, three A’s, three B’s, one C and a Merit, Distinction* and Pass.
Sanjay attended intervention after school to further his revision schedule, and said he was “able to obtain these results due to the support given by the Teachers at Carr Manor”.
He is planning to study at Notre Dame Catholic Sixth Form College in Leeds.
We also obtained impressive results in other school years, as our Year 10 pupils received grades in 17 separate non-core subjects with many impressive outcomes for pupils. This year computer science, GCSE PE and Spanish attained the strongest results.
Our younger pupils have also achieved good results this year in Reception (Good Levels of Development); Year 1 (Phonics) and Year 2 (SATs) showing continued improvement and in line with national levels.
