AFTER an extra-ordinary educational journey, today marked a very special day for our Year 11 students and the whole Gateway Learning Community as our students achieved some of the highest results in the history of the Gateway Academy.
With English, Maths and Science all performing higher than national average, overall results in-line with schools nationally and many of our students making exceptional progress and achieving outstanding results.
Headteacher Grainne McLaughlin thanked the students for their wonderful contribution to the Academy and knows they will go on to do great things in the future. ‘I would like to take this opportunity to congratulate all of our Year 11 cohort from 2023 for everything they have achieved throughout their time with us.
I am proud of each and every student and will be forever in awe at the support they provided to each other and the whole school community following the tragic death of one of our own students, Kayla Ere in March. An absolutely inspiring year group who make working in a school a complete privilege.’
Ms Mc Laughlin also thanked an extraordinary group of staff and parents/carers who support our students and a fantastic academy community.
The GLC’s CEO, Viki Reid said: ‘I am incredibly proud of all our Year 11 students who have achieved excellent GCSE results. This is testament to their hard work and resilience, the commitment and skill of their fantastic teachers and the inspirational leadership of Mrs McLaughlin and her team. I wish them every success for their future.’
