King’s Lynn Academy Celebrates Best GCSE Results

King’s Lynn Academy students and staff are celebrating some of their best-ever GCSE results, with 55% achieving grades between 9 and 4 in English and maths (equivalent to A*-C under the new grading system).

Principal Alan Fletcher said: “We are absolutely delighted, these are by some distance the best results in the school’s history and it is great to see our students being rewarded for their hard work.

“I know the students also appreciate the dedicated support they have received from all our brilliant staff.

“KLA has been on a journey of rapid improvement for the past 18 months, with intensive support from Eastern Multi-Academy Trust, and it is wonderful to see that those improvements have made such a contribution to the successes we celebrate today.

“We congratulate our students and their families, and wish them continued success as they leave KLA to begin their next chapter.”

Eastern Multi-Academy Trust chief executive, Duncan Ramsey said: “These fantastic results are a real credit to everyone at King’s Lynn Academy.

“I want to congratulate Mr Fletcher, the staff and students for achieving their best ever results. This is a significant achievement.”

Year 7  Literacy & Numeracy Catch-Up Premium Expenditure and Impact 2017-18

At King’s Lynn Academy we receive a top up grant to fund additional support to help pupils who arrive at secondary well-below nationally expected levels to catch up.  This grant in 2017-18 was £17,717 and was spent in the following ways:

  • Provision of HLTA support in both English and Mathematics to provide additional focussed support to those pupils needing to catch up
  • Provision of reading programme in English, with 1-1 TA/HLTA support
  • Close academic monitoring across all subjects, with resource targeted to those pupils most in need.

The impact of this work in 2017-18 was pleasing.  As can be seen from the attached dataset, in English 13 of the 22 pupils supported by this measure made more accelerated progress than expected through Year 7, with 6 moving from ‘well-below’ age-related expectation to now ‘meeting ARE’.  3 pupils were absent at the end-of year assessment and 6 continue to work well-below expected levels despite the additional provision.

The efficacy of our Year 7 reading programme was investigated during our Ofsted inspection of October 2018 who found

Additional funding is used well to enable less-able readers to catch-up.  A reading programme and 1-1 support for these learners enables them to accelerate.’

In Maths, 9 of the 13 pupils supported in this way accelerated their progress, with only 4 not managing to do so.

  Number of pupils well-below expectation Number of pupils ‘catching-up’ Number of pupils not catching up Proportion of pupils catching up Proportion of pupils not catching up Success Rate (including absent pupils)
ENGLISH 22 13 6 59% 27% 73%
MATHS 13 9 4 69% 31% 60%
