Nottingham Girls’ Academy is today celebrating their best ever GCSE results.
68% of pupils achieved a standard pass in English and Mathematics and 38% of pupils achieved a strong pass. In addition to this, the academy and pupils have made outstanding progress, achieving a Progress 8 score of 0.53 – a score which would have placed the Academy in the top 5% of schools nationally for progress last year!

Against the governments gold standard suite of qualifications (the English Baccalaureate) 44% achieved a standard pass and 22% achieved a strong pass in the five required qualifications of English, Mathematics, Science, a Humanity and a Modern Foreign Language.
