GCSE’S 2012: Don’t hassle the Hassenbrook! as they achieve greatest results ever

WE WERE very tempted to make the headline: “Richard’s revenge” but we know that Hassenbrook headteacher Mr Glasby is a mild mannered gentlemen. But anyone who saw his interview after the Ofsted report would know that he was confident that this set of results would put a marker down.

Hassenbrook Academy achieved the best GCSE results in the Academy’s history. 65% of students achieved 5 or more A* to C Grades including English and Maths, a leap from last year’s 58% and bettering the previous best achieved in 2010 of 63%. 73% of students achieved at least 5 A* to C grades.

Notably, two students, Elliot Ward and Billy Ardley, achieved 15 GCSE or equivalent passes at Grades A* to C, with a further ten students achieving 14 GCSE passes at Grades A* to C or equivalent. Senior Prefects, Chloe Sebastiao and Mary Adesina achieved 14 GCSE passes, all at A or A* grade, with distinctions in OCR Nationals in ICT, an accolade that many students across the country can only dream of. Nearly 40% of the cohort achieved 10 or more GCSE passes at Grade C or above.

Richard Glasby, Headteacher, is delighted with the outcome. “Students and staff are to be congratulated for this fantastic set of results , our best ever; the hard work from all concerned has really paid off. Hassenbrook is on the up, and we aspire to continue this improvement in our performance in coming years. Despite a reported decrease in GCSE results nationally, Hassenbrook are pleased to announce our results have improved.’


  1. So who was right and who was wrong?! Mr. Glasby or Ofsted?

    Yes the ‘qualifications’ have increased…but does that alone make a ‘Good’ school?
