Priory Academy successfully reaches a major milestone in our 106 year history with the announcement of our first set of excellent GCSE results. We started our journey to extend our age range by 3 years in 2013, taking it from a Middle School to an extended Secondary School. The results show that 75% of students achieved at least 5 good GCSEs including maths and English. These superb results are a tribute to the incredible hard work and dedication of our students, staff, parents and governors and are a testament to our school’s vision and values.

We are delighted to report the headline figures of:
Grade 9-4 in English and maths: 83.1%
Grade 9-5 in English and maths: 68.7%
5 or more GCSEs at grade A*-C (including maths and English at grade 4): 74.7%
5 or more GCSEs at grade A*-C (including maths and English at grade 5): 65.1%

We are particularly pleased to see the exceptionally strong results in mathematics and in Chemistry, Physics & Biology with 96% achieving grade 4+ and C+.
