Congratulations all at CSIA
Cheers of joy could be heard around CSIA on Thursday 20th August when students received their GCSE results after a summer of anticipation and months of remote learning.
This year’s summer exams were cancelled due to the pandemic and instead, GCSE and A-level students were awarded calculated grades based on teacher assessment and the government algorithm.
Mr Kenworthy, praised his students for their “incredible” GCSE results after a challenging year. He said: “We are overjoyed with this year’s results and couldn’t be prouder of our students and staff who have all worked tremendously hard. It’s been a difficult year, but we are so proud of the CSIA community – everyone has gone above and beyond. “These results are confirmation of our fantastic school, offering exceptional teaching and a learning environment which supports every student to achieve their potential. “What is most important is the fantastic contribution these young people make to the world around them and we are thrilled to welcome the majority of our students back to The VI Form Academy this September to begin the next stage of their journey.”
One student who was delighted with their results was Mackenzie Tellam, who attended the CSIA campus, received 9 GCSEs at grades 8/9 or equivalent and secured a place amongst other very able students at Cornwall School of Maths and Science (CSMS), part of CSIA’s VI Form provision, to study for A-levels in chemistry, biology and psychology.
She said: “My results have been a lovely surprise – I worked really hard and got the results I deserve. I am really excited about being in CSMS.”
Josh Patterson, who attended Nexus and achieved 9 GCSEs at grades 8/9 or equivalent and is now studying A-levels in mathematics, further mathematics and computer science at Cornwall School of Maths and Science.
He said: “I am very happy with my results. I really enjoyed Nexus, although it was challenging and I am really looking forward to CSMS this year.”
Cian Oates, who attended Nexus and achieved 10 GCSEs at grade 9/8/7, has joined The VI Form Academy at CSIA taking A-levels in economics, mathematics, geography and chemistry.
Vice Principal, Emma Haase said “These results represent an enormous amount of hard work, perseverance and dedication and are a well-deserved reward in our effort to continually strive to be extraordinary. We’re delighted that CSIA has sustained its high level of attainment and it’s a pleasure to see so many superb individual performances – a tribute to our commitment to exceptional teaching and learning,” “It is always wonderful to see the reactions of students who are so deserving of these incredible results, not just those who achieve the highest grades, but all those who have received the grades they deserve. “This is one of the most rewarding days in our school calendar and this year it is even more special after so many months of remote learning. Our A-level results are outstanding and now we have the same feeling repeated with GCSEs.”
“The achievement of every single student at our Academy matters hugely to us and we are very pleased that we have so many remarkable achievements to celebrate.”
CSIA has welcomed the vast majority of its students back to The VI Form Academy this September and with such excellent results, expectations are high.
“These results reflect our students’ tremendous dedication and hard work and we must thank the team and parents/carers for their total support in helping them achieve such great things,” said Mr Kenworthy.
“As they return to study for places at university and in employment, excellence is what our students will continue to strive for.
“GCSE results day represents the culmination of 11 years of hard work for our students and their outstanding grades show that our academy continues to prepare students for the challenges of A-levels, university and beyond. We all take great satisfaction from the new opportunities which these students now have before them!”
