Staff and students at Burnley’s Unity College are celebrating again today after receiving a further rise in their GCSE results, building on from their successful Ofsted report in June where they were judged to be a good school with outstanding features.
Headteacher Sally Cryer said this is a great achievement showing further improvements from last year’s GCSE results. “We achieved 100% GCSE pass rate for the whole year group with 53% achieving 5 A*-C grades including English and mathematics,” she said.
She congratulated students on their determination to be “the best they can be” and said: “This is a fantastic day for everyone at Unity College, particularly as the year has been so challenging.
“There is a relentless drive to achieve the best possible GCSE results for all the student and praise must go to the amazing teaching and support staff at Unity College who go the extra mile for the students every day.
“Today, everyone should be very proud of what the students have achieved. All the students should be congratulated for their GCSE results but particular recognition goes to the following students for achieving their fantastic results: Zenab Akhtar, Pearl Cavaney, Brandon Fuller, Chelsea Grimshaw, Kyle Lord, Max Preston, Karl Starkie, Darcie Stott and Morgan Topham.”
