Shenley Academy Class of 2018 Celebrate Success!

24 August 2018

2018 will be remembered as the year when grades 9 to 1 appeared in all GCSE subjects and colleges and future employers got to grips with a new grading system. For the class of 2018 it marks the end of years of preparation and 23rd August will have been anticipated throughout the long hot summer.

For so many of our students they will be celebrating some really wonderful achievements, with English, Science sports and the arts subjects once again seeing brilliant grades. With 73% of students in the year group walking away with standard passes in GCSE English, Shenley Academy students have continued to achieve exceptional results.


Students have excelled in all subjects, but particular congratulations go to:

  • Ricardo Balla: 9,9,9,8,8,8,7, A* and Dist*
  • Louis Wright: 9, 9, 9, 8, 8, 6, 5, A and Dist.
  • Jack Keeling: 9, 9, 8, 8, 8, 7, 5, Dist*, Dist*
  • Harrison Kerr: 9, 9, 9, 7, 7, 6, 6, A*, Dist*
  • Gracie Hinks: 9, 9, 8, 7, 7, 7, A, Dist*, Dist


100% of Shenley students have a chosen pathway to start in September, which is testament to the combination of great careers advice and guidance as well as a broad and balanced curriculum.



“The class of 2018 have demonstrated that hard work and commitment to studies reaps rewards. Congratulations are due to each and every student for their wonderful outcomes and I wish them every success as start their next educational adventure!”
