There was plenty to celebrate at Rivers Academy West London on GCSE results day this year.

Some 66% of students achieved Grade 4 + in English and Maths and 48% scored 5+ in English and Maths. Many students also celebrated the prestigious grade 9 in their results across subjects.  Over a quarter of students achieved the highest grades in English Language, English Literature, Combined Science, French and Spanish.

Andria Singlehurst, Principal at Rivers Academy, said: ”We are incredibly proud of Rivers Academy Year 11 students who have been such a wonderful year group.  ”The year group has continually impressed staff with their resilience and perseverance throughout the pandemic.  They were the first year group to be able to return to the Academy from the first lockdown in the summer of their Year 10 and worked so conscientiously.”

She added: “It is important to recognise how highly regarded this amazing group of young people are by staff at Rivers Academy, we are so proud of them and of the hard work they put into attaining these results. We are delighted that they have achieved so well across the full range of GCSE and Level 2 qualifications and are confident that they continue to do so next year and beyond.  They have been positive, resilient, engaged members of our Academy community and a real credit to their families and communities.”

Vice Principal, Alex Dixon, who worked closely with this year group, said: “I would like to congratulate all our Year 11 students on the incredible levels of effort and resilience that they have shown in achieving their results.  I am immensely proud of what each individual has achieved and wish them every success in the future.”

Ms Singlehurst also praised the efforts of Rivers Academy staff: ”They have worked incredibly hard to ensure that every student has continued to receive the best education possible throughout their studies. Staff across the Academy have really enjoyed working with this year group and, despite the unprecedented challenge faced, there have again been some exceptional individual performances across subjects. The Academy staff wish each and every student the very best for their future, whether continuing into Rivers Academy sixth form or continuing their studies further afield.”
