Droylsden Academy Headteacher Mr Wilson says he is delighted that the hard work of students and staff has paid off as the school celebrates another strong set of GCSE results this year. This was the first time since 2019 that students sat national examinations.
Mr Wilson said, “On behalf of the staff, our Governors and the Tame River Educational Trust, I would like to congratulate the Class of 2022 on their successes. The students have faced an incredibly challenging two years and we should not underestimate how hard it has been at times throughout the pandemic. Our students have shown resilience, maturity, drive and determination and we are very, very proud of them. There have been some outstanding individual achievements and some incredible subject performances. The school is delighted for many of our less financially advantaged students who have performed exceptionally”.
Mr Wilson added, “As well as being an incredibly challenging time for students, the last few years have been difficult for parents and school staff. I would like to thank parents and carers for their unwavering help, support and encouragement and I would like to congratulate our staff for going the extra mile, particularly for all the additional teaching hours they have provided for students”.
