We are extremely proud that out of all of the GCSE results gained by our students this August, 78.9 % hit or exceeded targets. 100% of students taking Film Studies, Core Science, Photography and English hit or exceeded their predicted grades
Given the difficulties that our students come to us with and will never be "cured" of, this is an incredible achievement.
The impressive commitment and endeavour shown by our outgoing Year 11 students' was fantastic. Their persistence and aspiration has paid off. Our teaching and therapy teams spent inordinate amounts of time and effort in supporting our young people and personalising their learning, so breaking down the barriers to learning that we see every day at Shapwick and giving them strategies to help them understand, remember and recall.
A massive 76.9 % of students achieved 5 or more A* - E grades and 42.3 % of students achieved 5 or more A*-C grades, including English and Maths – both of which pose obvious and significant difficulty for our students
