The sustained success over recent years at TQEA is living evidence of our commitment that “we can and we will”. We foster a culture of learning by ensuring mutual respect and good behaviour with an ethos based upon high quality teaching. We believe that all students can achieve well and have a balanced curriculum with personalised routes to success. This is supplemented by a wide range of extra-curricular experiences and opportunities. We aim for our students to be academically successful but also to be prepared for adulthood as happy and effective citizens.
Following a year of incredible effort, dedication and a can do attitude, students and staff at The Queen Elizabeth Academy are celebrating yet another year of strong academic results. For a fourth year in a row, the progress of students at TQEA is set to be well above National Average in the government’s Progress 8 headline measure.
English and Maths remain at the centre of The Queen Elizabeth Academy’s academic results with 77% of students in English achieving a grade 4 or above and 75% of students in Maths also achieving a grade 4 or above.
Results data shows that students in the core subjects of English, Maths and Science have outperformed their counterparts in other schools, with TQEA students recording above National Average grades.
Whilst the traditionally academic subjects are of importance, so too is the wider curriculum at TQEA. Students in Art achieved incredibly well with 85% awarded a grade 4 or above. PE BTEC students achieved a 100% pass rate and 100% of our incredibly talented Music students achieved at grade 4 or above.
Whilst we always celebrate the achievements of the team at TQEA, there are some notable individual performances that deserve to be shared:
Lowell Sheasby achieved a Progress 8 score higher than any other student at TQEA demonstrating his dedication and effort across all 11 GCSE subjects studied.
Sophie Cruddas achieved a staggering three grade 9’s and five grade 8’s which put her top of the attainment table.
Dan Watts, Principal commented:
“I am incredibly proud of our students and staff. They have all worked tirelessly across the year and today got their just rewards. The continued success of our school benefits, not only those directly attached, but the community as a whole. ‘We Can & We Will’ – ‘They Could & They Did’”
Vince Green, Regional Education Director said:
“I am delighted to see another strong set of GCSE results at The Queen Elizabeth Academy. Year on year students make excellent levels of progress at the academy and this is testimony to their hard work, and to the dedication of the outstanding team of staff that work there. Congratulations to all the young people on their achievements.”
