Joyce Frankland Academy GCSEs: Progress and performance by star students
Two star students at Joyce Frankland Academy in Newport scored 10 top grade 9s in their GCSEs.
According to the Bury Water Lane secondary, Martha H and Archie M's achievements reflected their exceptional resilience and determination.
The two students who made most progress in the past five years are Heidi B and Daniel A. They both achieved, on average, two grades higher than would ordinarily be expected.
Principal Duncan Roberts said: "I would like to congratulate every single one of our Year 11 students. They've overcome unique and specific challenges no previous GCSE student has had to face.
"I know they would also like me to acknowledge the hard work and sacrifice of their teachers, parents, friends and family who have supported them through the grading process and now can share in their achievements.
"The class of 2021 have demonstrated a real love for their learning, maintaining effort and engagement even when having to work from home. I'm confident the skills they've developed will ensure they go on to be happy and successful in their futures, and I look forward to continuing that journey with many as they embark on their A-level study with us in September."
