Students at Bridge Academy are today celebrating outstanding success in their GCSEs.
The Alternative Provision Academy, which supports those at risk of exclusion from local mainstream education, saw results skyrocket with 85% of those entered for GCSE English and mathematics gaining a pass in both.
There was almost a five-fold increase in those achieving five or more GCSE passes compared with 2014. These results would have placed Milton Keynes second amongst Local Authorities in the south east of England and seventh compared with all other English Local Authorities.
Bridge Academy was judged as ‘Good’ in all categories by OfSTED in July 2015.
Dr Neil Barrett, Executive Principal of Bridge Academy, praised students for their hard work and success and staff for their efforts in supporting students to achieve such outstanding results.
All the 2014 national Key Stage 4 benchmarks were comfortably exceeded with the 2015 results from Bridge Academy which would see Milton Keynes being placed in the top 10% of all English Local Authorities and either first or second of all Local Authorities in the south east for alternative provision.
