As many of you will have noticed, Show My Homework, the service we use to set and manage homework at Weavers, experienced an outage during the evenings of Monday 11 September and Tuesday 12 September. We understand that this was inconvenient for students trying to complete their homework, so teachers will be discussing deadlines for homework set prior to this with their classes in the coming days.

Attached below is a message from Team Satchel, the company which operates Show My Homework, explaining the cause of the outage.

Pupils and staff at Weavers Academy were today celebrating some of the best GCSE results the school has seen. The school in Wellingborough, part of the Creative Education Trust, saw:

 

  • GCSE pass rates of almost 100% across all subjects (99.6%)
  • 68% of students achieved a new ‘standard pass’ of grade four or above in English
  • 62% of students achieved a new  ‘standard pass’ of grade four or above in Maths

This is the first year that pupils across England received their results using the new 9 - 1 grades with 9 being the highest grade. For the first year, the new grading system is only applicable to English language, English literature and mathematics. Other subjects will be phased in next year and the year after. The BBC have put together a guide for parents - http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/education-39490307

 

As well as strong overall results, there were a number of personal success stories including;

 

Natasha Fyffe who achieved grade 9 9 A* A* A* A* 8 A A and Distinction*

Louis Clark who achieved grades 9 9 A* A* A* A* A A 7 and Distinction*

Esha Kumari who achieved grades A* A* A* A* A* 8 7 7 and Distinction*

Alex Lancaster-Lennox who achieved grades 9 A* A* 8 A A A A 5

Chloe Thompson who achieved grades A* A A A A A 8 8 7 and Distinction*

 

Natasha, Louis, Esha, Alex, and Chloe all expressed their absolute delight and relief upon receiving their results this morning. They will all be returning to Weavers Academy in September to begin A level studies.

 

Vivien Swaida, Principal at Weavers Academy, said: “I am enormously proud of our students particularly when I see both their academic learning and their personal development flourishing. We are here to make sure that every young person who leaves us has real choices in life, whether sixth-form, an apprenticeship or into the workplace. I wish all of our pupils the best of luck for the future – I cannot wait to see what they go on to do next.”

Dear Parents

I hope you are enjoying a wonderful summer holiday with your children. We have just had some great A-Level results and are excited to see so many of our Year 13 students going on to university or starting apprenticeships.

We are looking forward to the start of term - Tuesday 5 September.  Please can I ask you to revisit the uniform expectations with your son or daughter and remind you of the letter I sent at the end of last term.  Uniform expectations can be found here.

Kind regards

Richard Boddy

On Friday 23 June many of our Year 11 students donned their prom dresses and prom suits to enjoy a fabulous evening at The Collingtree Hotel in Northampton. They have been pushed really hard this year and have always risen to the challenges they were set. It was no surprise then, that they all looked absolutely stunning in beautiful dresses and smart suits and many more made an effort on their arrival to the event. 
The nominated Prom King and Queen for the evening were Josh Kerr and Natasha Fyffe who both looked incredible. Best dressed male was awarded to Tariq Said with Esha Kumari receiving the much coveted accolade of best dress female. 
 
We are extremely proud of our Year 11 leavers and wish them every success in their future endeavours.
