Saturday school and extra revision sessions helped students to achieve top grades in their GCSE exams.

Students at Burnt Mill Academy attend weekend, evening and holiday classes to give them the best chance of success.

As they collected their GCSE results today, they praised the school’s unique structure.


 

Brandon Grover-Hannibal collected three grade 9, four grade 8, two grade 7 and one grade 6 results. He hopes to go on to Herts and Essex High School to study chemistry, computer science and maths.

He said: “I have done better than I thought I would and that is due to the amount of hard work I put in at school. The extra after-school sessions help.

“I am feeling happy.”

Proud mum Natalie said: “I am absolutely delighted.

“It was definitely the after-school and Saturday lessons that helped him the most. He found it hard to revise at home with the distractions. The school has done well; he did not get stressed out at all over the exam season as he was so well prepared for it.”


 

Annabel Rivoire collected seven grade 9, one grade 8 and one grade 7. She is going to Herts and Essex High School to study maths, business and psychology with hopes of becoming a chartered accountant.

She said: “I never expected these results in a million years! My hands were shaking so much, I could not open them, I had to get my mum to do it for me. I am so happy as I was not expecting to get these results.

“I revised as much as I could. The study clubs made all the difference.”

Mum Angie said: “Annabel revised 12 hours per day for six months! She did well in her mocks, so I was expecting good results. I am so proud of her. The fact she has worked so hard is what matters; the results are the icing on the cake that she deserves.

“She has always worked hard and been academic, but the school has been brilliant. The fact they stagger GCSEs in Year 9 and 10 makes the difference.

“They put the hard work in and this is what they get.”


 

Georgia Samuels achieved five grade 8, four grade 7 and a grade A. She is going to Herts and Essex High School to study English literature, biology and psychology.

She said: “I was really anxious that I would get a lower grade in maths, but I got a grade 7. I needed a grade 7 in biology for my course and I got a grade 8, so I was really surprised.

“I put in a lot of work, spending evenings revising. My English teacher told me about a resource on YouTube for revision which really helped in all subjects. I struggle to revise with things like flashcards, so the tips and resources they suggested were really beneficial.

“The extra revision sessions are so helpful. The teachers being there with us helped me to get better grades.”


 

Amber Tapley achieved a Distinction, one grade 8, one grade 7, two grade 6, two grade 5, two grade B and one grade C. she is going to Harlow College to study science, maths and computer science.

She said: “I worry a lot, but managed to handle the exams pretty well, better than I expected. My form tutor and other teachers encouraged me and told me I was going to be fine. I made sure I had some ‘me’ time doing the things I enjoy, as well as revising and taking the exams.

“Saturday school and the extra revision sessions really helped. I had support from my teachers if I got stuck.

“I feel the school helped me a lot. It’s my teachers who got me through it. I feel really relieved with these results.”
