Witton Park Academy has built upon last year’s excellent results.

In 2017, pupil performance was in the top 15% of schools nationally. The 2018 results have improved further on this. GCSE Maths has risen from 74% to 76% of pupils achieving a pass and English from 68% to 76%

Dean Logan, Headteacher, said: “The percentage of pupils achieving both Maths and English has risen from 60% to 64%. We expect this to be above the national figure and are delighted for our pupils, parents and staff, who have worked very hard to achieve this level of success together.”

He went on, “We wish all our year 11 pupils well as they continue into further education and apprenticeships.”

Due to the school’s success, Witton Park Academy has agreed to take more pupils in September. The school will take 255 year 7 pupils, 15 more than the normal 240. The school’s Open Evening this year is 26 September from 4pm.
