Achievements and Results

Results awarded to students in 2020 and 2021 were from the Centre Assessed Grades submitted by teachers to the examination boards and were not based on the outcomes of examinations which did not take place due to the Covid-19 pandemic.

The grades submitted were subject to a rigorous moderation process across our trust and reflect realistic levels of improvement expected in our academy.

Below, data from 2020 and 2021 is presented alongside our most recent, externally validated data (generated from external examinations) available, from 2018 and 2019.

2021 Press Release

Iceni Academy at Methwold principal Lesley Hogg has heaped praise on students following the release of this year’s GCSE results.

The principal congratulated youngsters for their resilience and fortitude during an uncertain academic year.

“In the midst of all the uncertainty that this academic year has brought, our students have demonstrated their resilience and fortitude,” she said.

“During times when they have been unable to attend the academy in person, this cohort has remained strong; focussed on their goals and determined to achieve.

“We are so proud of the support given to our students by their parents, carers and staff at the academy. Thank you to everyone who worked with us to make these results happen.

“It is hard to single out students for individual recognition, as so many have done us proud.

“However, I would personally like to commend Jack Greenacre on his exceptional results across the board; achieving eight passes at a grade 7 and above, including three at a grade 9.

“Jack’s commitment to his studies has been exemplary, coupled with his enthusiasm to contribute to the academy community in his role as Minister for Environment.

“A special mention should also be made of Hamza Shabbir. Hamza joined us in January 2020, two months before the first lockdown, new to the country and unable to speak any English.

“Today, Hamza picks up eight GCSE qualifications, thanks to his determination to succeed as well as invaluable support from our SEND department. I am immensely proud and humbled by all their hard work, and wish them well in their future endeavours.”
