The Littlehampton Academy is celebrating this morning after announcing GCSE results that show strong improvements in the achievements of its students.
This year, 49 per cent of students entered gained five GCSEs at A*-C including English and maths.
A further 66 per cent of students entered gained an A*-C in English and 68 achieved grades A*-C in maths.
The performance of disadvantaged students has improved significantly as 30 per cent of students achieved a grade C or above.
Principal, Morgan Thomas, said: “Four months ago, the academy came out of special measures and now our exam results are the best we’ve had for years.
“This is a result of a great deal of hard work by staff, students and parents and shows how much this community can achieve when we all pull together.
“The performance of disadvantaged students has rightly been highlighted as an area that the school needs to focus on and these results show that we are making very good progress here.” The school’s Progress 8 figure will be released in the next couple of weeks.
