At Barnfield West Academy, 100% of students accomplished 5 A*-C grades overall, with 68% netting 5 A* - C with English and Maths.

Head Boy Imani Lewis-Simmons led the success stories with 1 A*, 8 As and 1 B. He said: “I’m really surprised but ecstatic. I didn’t think I would be getting all As and just 1 B. It’s been brilliant at Barnfield. I wouldn’t have changed anything.”

Imani will now study History, English Literature, Philosophy and Government & Politics at Barnfield Sixth Form.

And Head Girl Lucy-Jane Ling was delighted with her 4 A grades, 3 Bs and 5 Cs, saying: “I’m really really really pleased! It is such a relief!”

Miles Thompson’s hard work earned him one A*, 6 As and 4 Bs. He said: “I feel really good, I’m glad the hard work all paid off in the end. The support Barnfield give you is the reason why I was able to get the grades that I got.”

Year 10 students Orenthal Daalberg and Tanwier Idoe both achieved A grades in GCSE Dutch one year early.

Barnfield outgoing Director General Sir Peter Birkett said: “This is another historic day for Barnfield and our students as we celebrate another incredible set of results across the Federation. I am so incredibly proud of all that has been achieved over the past 8 years; being the first academy sponsor, increasing qualification success rates from a low base to some of the highest in the country. This has made such a positive difference to so many lives providing life chances that they would otherwise have been denied.

“Particular congratulations should go to Barnfield South Academy, who will probably be named the very best performing school in the town this summer and of course to Barnfield College, who with an interim 95% success rate, is likely to be acknowledged as the highest performing College in the country.

“Well done to all our students, parents, staff and Principals who I am sure will continue to drive Barnfield forward and build on the legacy created to date.”
