The Academy’s Principal, Heidi Brown who leaves the school now to take up a headship at Bexhill High Academy was delighted:
‘I am very pleased with these results. In particular our English results are outstanding having increased by 26% with 82% of our students gaining a C grade or above and 20 % gaining A or A*.
‘We deemed this our bounce back year following disappointing results in 2013 and we have certainly done that. I would like to congratulate all the staff and students who have worked phenomenally hard over the last year.
‘When I started at this school, before it became an academy, I knew that we had the potential to vastly improve our results and become a school worthy of its children and staff. Our results have more than doubled since then and we have received an Outstanding from Ofsted. So, whilst very sorry to be leaving Shoreham, I am very pleased to have achieved what I set out to do here. I am very proud of our students and staff and congratulate them all on this success.’
Jim Coupe, Vice Principal at Shoreham responsible for GCSE outcomes and Principal designate for September, added:
‘I am so proud of our students for the time and effort that they have put into their studies. The commitment that they have shown bodes well for their own future and sets a fantastic example to those that follow as we look ahead to the new school year.’
