    Joyce Frankland Academy, Newport is delighted with the excellent achievements of their G.C.S.E. students of 2017. At this point, Joyce Frankland Academy, Newport would like to share the results of some exceptional individual students who have made their school immensely proud. Although at this stage, the Academy has made the decision not to share overall headline figures for this academic cohort because of the considerable national change to this year’s exam system, the Academy can confirm that there have been significant improvements in attainment for a large majority of subjects, including mathematics results and students achieving the top grades.  

    Eve Wharton achieved the maximum grades set that a year 11 student can receive. She gained three 9 grades in English language, literature and mathematics as well as a further 9 A* grades in all her remaining subject. Eleanor Hampson also achieved outstanding results, achieving 2 9s in English language and literature, a grade 8 in maths, 5 A*s and 3 A grades. Both Eve and Eleanor are truly outstanding students and have always exhibited the ethos and values that the Academy believes is integral to achieving success.

    Jakub Fridrich achieved two 9 grades in English literature and mathematics, a 8 grade in English language and a further 7 A*s and 2 A grades in his remaining nine subjects, including 3 A* grades in physics, chemistry and biology. Like Eve and Eleanor, Jakub has demonstrated excellence in all facets of learning over the past five years and is an excellent example of what young people at Newport can achieve.

    Georgia Bozianu received 2 9 grades in English language and literature as well as a 7 in mathematics as well as 3 A grades in Triple Science and an A* in physical education. Georgia has achieved this success alongside achieving excellence in sport, especially hockey, which has proven to be an inspiration for the younger cohorts at the Academy.

    Alice Shickell achieved excellence in English language, literature and mathematics with grades of 8 and 9. She also achieve 7 A*s in her remaining subjects, including physics, biology, chemistry and geography. Matthew Abrahams also achieved some highly impressive results, receiving 7s in both English language and literature, a grade 8 in mathematics and a further 4 A* grades and 4 A grades. Alice and Matthew are excellent students, like so many in this cohort, and the Academy looks forward to tracking their future successes.      

    Choosing only six students has been extremely difficult. The vast majority of our students have demonstrated our core values of independence, imagination, inquisitiveness and insight. Principal, Gordon Farquhar stated, ‘It is great to see so many students in this year 11 cohort achieve what they deserve. They have worked very worked to achieve this success, as have the teaching staff who have been tireless in the determination to ensure success for the young people they work with. I wish all our year 11 students the very best for the future and look forward to seeing the many students who will be enrolling onto our sixth form programme, in September.”
