Principal, Ian Kenworthy, praised his students for their “incredible” GCSE results, commenting, “We are absolutely thrilled with this year’s results and congratulate all our students and staff who have worked incredibly hard. We are particularly pleased with the results in Mathematics, English and Science, which were outstanding and reflect our specialist status as a centre of excellence in Science and Mathematics teaching. We are delighted this year to be launching Cornwall School of Maths and Science which is part of The VI Form Academy’s specialist provision. As Cornwall’s top STEM A level provider, we are very pleased to be welcoming A level students from all over Cornwall”
“The commitment shown by our students, together with expert teaching, guidance and support from our devoted staff and family members, have all played a part in the successes we have seen today” said Mr Kenworthy.

She commented “I wasn’t too nervous this morning but when I got to school and saw everyone I felt the nerves come on. I’m so relieved to have got my grades and I’m ready to study Maths, Further Maths, Chemistry and Physics.”
Bethany Fenn, who received 10 GCSEs at grades 8/9 or A*, and will now go on to study A levels, commented, “I was actually quite excited this morning, big thank you to Miss Doolan for helping me get my 9 in English.”
Alexandria G received 9 GCSEs at grades 9/8 or 7, and will now go on to study for A-levels in English Literature, Religion, Philosophy and Ethics, Sociology and an Extended Project Qualification at The VI Form Academy at CSIA.
“It is always such a delight to see the reactions of students who are so deserving of these wonderful results, not just those who achieve the highest grades, but all those who have exceeded their own expectations” said Emma Haase, Vice Principal at CSIA. “These incredible GCSE results are testament to our students who truly understand the importance of making the most of every opportunity, working hard and reaching for the stars.”
CSIA looks forward to welcoming the vast majority of its students back to The VI Form Academy in September and with such excellent results, expectations are high.
“As they return to study for places at university and in employment, excellence is what our students will continue to strive for. We look forward to seeing them back at The VI Form Academy and challenge them all to surpass the excellent A Level results achieved by our students last week!”
“The achievements of every student at our Academy matters hugely to us and we are thrilled that we have so many remarkable achievements to celebrate” said Mrs Haase. “We would like to thank the whole team and school community for their total support in helping them achieve such great things.”
Mr Kenworthy added, “GCSE results day represents the culmination of 11 years of hard work for our students. The outstanding grades we have seen here today show that our Academy continues to prepare students for the challenges of A-levels, university and beyond. Huge congratulations to all students, their teachers and families!”
