Droylsden Academy Celebrates Exceptional GCSE Results: Newly appointed Co-Headteachers Mrs Arnold and Mr Mayell Share Pride and Success 

Droylsden Academy is delighted to announce the outstanding success of its students in the recent GCSE examinations. Co-Headteachers Mrs Arnold and Mr Mayell express their immense pride in the remarkable achievements of the students, reflecting the dedication and hard work put in by both the students and the staff:

“The Class of 2023 were a fantastic cohort and we could not be prouder of them. There was a palpable sense of teamwork with students and staff working together and fully believing in what can be achieved through hard work. We will miss them and wish them every success as they move on with their studies.

Maths have had a record year and English has remained strong.  20% of students achieved a grade 7 or above in maths and 22% achieved a grade 7 or above in English.

78% of students achieved a grade 4 or above in English, 76% in Science and 72% in maths.

There were also very strong results in History, Religious Studies, Science and Food and Nutrition which gives our students a strong start in the next part of their education. 

Droylsden Academy continues to demonstrate its commitment to excellence in education. These results are a testament to the collaborative efforts of the students, teachers, and support staff who have tirelessly worked towards ensuring the best possible outcomes, particularly for all the additional teaching hours they have provided for students before and after school.”

Mr Mayell commented, “We are overjoyed by the exceptional performance of our students in this year’s GCSE exams. Their resilience, determination and the unwavering support of staff, parents and carers have truly paid off. These results highlight the nurturing environment that Droylsden Academy provides, where each student’s potential is realised and celebrated.”

Mrs Arnold added, “Our students’ achievements are a reflection of their commitment and the high standard of teaching and guidance they receive at Droylsden Academy. We take immense pride in fostering an atmosphere where students feel empowered to excel academically and personally.”

Droylsden Academy remains dedicated to offering a well-rounded education that nurtures not only academic excellence but also the development of character and life skills. The success of these GCSE results is a strong endorsement of the school’s holistic approach to education, where all students belong.

As the Co-Headteachers, Mr Mayell and Mrs Arnold express their gratitude to the parents and carers for their support, and they extend their congratulations to the students for their exceptional achievements. Once again, Droylsden Academy has seen a significant increase in the number of applications for places in September and, for the seventh year running, the school is heavily oversubscribed with an extensive waiting list.
