A DETERMINED optimism could be seen at Hassenbrook as students collected their results for what can only be described as a year of significant change at Hassenbrook Academy which is set to join The Stanford and Corringham Schools Trust on 1st September 2016.
The percentage of overall A* – C passes, or equivalent, was 48.4% with 32% achieving five A* – C including English and Mathematics. The Ebacc pass rate stood at a respectable 27% with the indicative progress 8 figure keeping the school above floor standards.
Mrs S Rollason, Interim Headteacher of Hassenbrook Academy said, “we know what we need to do to tackle the challenges which lie ahead and we are taking the required actions to ensure that all Hassenbrook students get a fair deal going forward. Improvement plans are firmly in place to raise achievements and aspirations notably in English.
Hassenbrook students deserve no less, we are proud of the strong performances of our students in Mathematics, Science, Modern Foreign Languages, Geography and Art”.
Amongst the very many individual impressive achievements were:
