Sharnbrook Academy GCSE Results 2018
Students and staff at Sharnbrook Academy are celebrating today after receiving fantastic GCSE and BTEC results.
131 of the highest possible GCSE grades (grade 9) were achieved, almost 4% of the total school exam entries in the reformed GCSE grading system. There were 216 grade 8s and 15 A* grades constituting almost 6% of entries, with a further 521 grade 7 and A grades (13.5%). Sharnbrook Academy’s BTEC students also achieved excellent results with over 22% grades marked at Distinction or Distinction*.
In addition to these already significant results, almost 80% of GCSE entries were graded at a standard pass or better (grade 4, or grade C for the unreformed GCSEs). BTEC results were even better, with an 88% pass rate. Overall, an impressive 85% of GCSE subjects improved their pass rates on last year.
The Academy is proud of all of its students for their fantastic performance in this year’s reformed GCSEs, and amongst its cohort there have been some incredible success stories:
Sophie Hadden-Becker - 9 grade 9s, 2 grade 8s, 1 A^
Jamie Nash - 9 grade 9s, 1 grade 8, 1 grade A

Peter Rattu, Academy Principal of Sharnbrook Academy, said:
“We are so proud of the incredible achievements of the 2018 cohort of Sharnbrook GCSE and BTEC students, especially with this newly reformed system. The students have worked incredibly hard throughout the course and have been supported by our highly dedicated and hardworking staff, who have gone above and beyond what is required in supporting our students. On top of this, the school community has had to cope with the change that comes with moving to a two tier structure. When you consider all this, the students and staff have done exceptionally well.
“All of us here at Sharnbrook would like to extend our congratulations to all of our GCSE and BTEC students, and wish them the best of success in their future paths.”
