The percentage of students gaining five or more A*-C grade passes at GCSE was 65 per cent, and 52 per cent achieved five or more A*Cs, including English and Maths. Science, history and modern foreign languages were the most improved or highest achieving subjects. Sarah Wilson, principal at Sawtry Village Academy said: Our students should be very proud of their achievements, particularly with so many exam results returning with the highest A*, A and B grades. To maintain strong results after a year of change and turbulence in the marking of results demonstrates our commitment to provide a high quality education, and provides the new leadership and the Trust with a good base from which to improve further. Notable performances were recorded by Joanna Corney who achieved 11 A* and 1 A Grades. The leadership team at the Academy was praised recently after the Education Funding Agency lifted the Academys financial notice to improve, after it was implemented last July.
