GCSE success for Summit Learning Trust students

Summit Learning Trust is celebrating the best ever progress made by its GCSE students across the Trust’s three secondary schools; Cockshut Hill, Ninestiles and Lyndon.

At Cockshut Hill, we’ve seen the best results in years, with one in 12 students achieving top grades in English and Maths, and a 7% increase in students achieving Grade 5 (a strong pass) in the two subjects. The school’s Progress 8 score (national measure of progress made from student baseline) has seen a provisional increase of 0.7. This means that students did 3/4 grade better than last year across the board!

Lyndon School has seen the percentage of students achieving the top grades 8 and 9  increase by staggering 20%. The proportion of students achieving a pass grade in both English and Maths increased by 13% to achieve the highest percentage the school has ever seen!

At Ninestiles, An Academy, our most able students had great success in triple Science with over half of students achieving the highest grades. In English, the percentage of students achieving grades the highest grades increased by 5%. In addition, the progress made by all students improved significantly from the previous year.

The CEO, Catherine Anwar commented: ‘I am so proud of and delighted with the significant improvements in student achievement across Summit Learning Trust. This is down to the incredibly hard work of Academy leaders and staff – and of course to the work of our wonderful students themselves. It’s a real cause for celebration for our academies and the communities we serve. I’d like to thank all parents for their support for our academies and their children – it is a crucial aspect of our success. This is only the start of our improvement journey, and we now have some real momentum to achieve even higher standards as we #scaletheheightstogether.’

Many of the Trust’s students will be continuing their further education at the Solihull Sixth Form College, which is also part of the Summit Learning Trust family.
