Wellfield Celebrates Outstanding Achievement Across the Curriculum
We are celebrating another outstanding year of GCSE results in 2021. Students have been praised for their achievement, which has been made despite the extreme challenges that Covid has presented. They worked extremely hard after the first national lockdown and returned to school in June 2020 with a determined attitude to succeed. This was evident during the summer holidays in 2020 when over 70% of students attended 3 weeks of academic ‘Catch Up’ Summer School. The start of year 11 in September saw the same determination to work hard and achieve with after school ‘Get Exam Ready’ classes attended by all students. The result of the tremendous effort of students and teachers is the wonderful set of results recognising Wellfield once again as a high achieving school.
The proportion of students who passed Maths with standard and higher grades have consistently been well above the national average for over 5 years. Achievement in Maths at Wellfield is outstanding. In 2021 results have seen sustained excellence in this key core subject area. This academic year has seen many successes. The percentage of students who achieved grades 9-4 and grades 9-5 in both key subjects of Maths and English was again above national average. In addition to above average progress in core subjects most subject areas have achieved above national expectations.
Pupil progress across the curriculum at Wellfield is well above average. Students from all levels of ability achieve well. Headteacher Linda Rodham was again delighted with the achievement of students. “I would like to congratulate all of our students who are once again a credit to themselves and the school. Many students exceeded their expectations, and the school is very proud of the outstanding achievement of students of all abilities. The continued progress at Wellfield reflects a fantastic team effort and the hard work and commitment of the whole school community. We are a ‘Good’ school and everyone at Wellfield is committed to ensure we are recognised as an ‘Outstanding’ one in the future.”
