GCSE results day 2020: North Cambridge Academy celebrates impressive achievements
Despite the challenges from Covid-19 restrictions, there have been some impressive GCSE results for students at North Cambridge Academy.
The school praised the outstanding performances from Sheneil Crawford, Amirah Khannom, and Ayesha Nurjahan, who achieved the results they needed to embark on a fully funded two-year boarding scholarship through the Springboard Foundation.
Sage Sanders, Joshua Salmon and Alejandra Lozano recorded similarly impressive results to secure places on a two-year scholarship at the Stephen Perse Foundation in Cambridge for their sixth-form studies.
Other success stories at the academy included:
Vanessa Filusz, who achieved four grade nines, a grade 8 in maths and five grade 7s.
Kacey Gilbert, the school’s student president, who achieved three grade 9s in GCSE science and history, two distinction stars in sport and construction, and a grade 8 in maths.
Sajan Gurung overcame several barriers to achievement to gain an excellent set of results including three grade nines in GCSE maths and double science and two distinction stars in sport and construction.
Samuel Fox, principal at North Cambridge Academy, said: “These results represent another very successful academic year at North Cambridge Academy and I am delighted that, regardless of the disruption, our young people have achieved the qualifications they need to take the next step on their educational journey.
“Although this year there was significant disruption to the exam series, the young people’s successful outcomes are no less deserved, and we would like to congratulate the whole cohort on their hard work and determination to fulfil their potential.
“We are extremely proud of our students and congratulate them on achieving a superb set of results. We would like to thank all the staff and parents for their constant support and wish all the students well with their future endeavours.”
This year, school performance data is not being published by the government because of the exceptional circumstances brought about the global pandemic.
As a result, Cambridgeshire schools are not publishing GCSE and A-level results in the usual format, and concentrating instead on individual success stories.
