Outwood Academy Carlton Outstanding Exam Results 2017

For more Outwood Academy Carlton videos please follow this link to our You Tube channel.

Students at Outwood Academy Carlton once again achieved phenomenal results this summer, gaining the best results in the history of the academy or its predecessor schools and improving significantly upon last year’s results.

We continue to be one of the top performing schools in Barnsley, now second only to the borough’s Grammar school for attainment and students at Carlton make more progress than at any other Barnsley school and well above the national average.

68% of students achieved at least a grade 4 (the equivalent to a grade C) in both English and Maths, a rise of 5% from last year and more than doubling the figure from when Outwood Grange Academies Trust began working with the school in 2014. Half of our students achieved at least a grade 5 in both English and Maths.

English 4+ = 83%
English 5+ = 73%
Maths 4+ = 71%
Maths 5+ = 52%
2+ Sciences A*-C = 66%

Results across the board were superb and many of our students achieved a whole string of top grades, with stunning performances from Emilie Beattie, Brandon Green, Anya Haigh, Nicole Powell, Katy Winrow, Alex Dryden and Jordan Swann.

“This year group were quite incredible and I have never known a group of young people who worked so hard and wanted to be successful so much. The demands placed upon them were immense but they rose to every challenge and as things got more difficult, they just worked even harder. These results are testament to their dedication and desire, to the support provided by their families and to staff who always put students first. I am incredibly proud of the achievements of each and every one of our students and when we talk about ‘transforming lives’, I know that is what we have done for so many of them and these results, and the fact that they have developed into such well-rounded people, will mean that they will be successful in whatever they choose to do in the future”.
Paul Haynes, Principal

A full breakdown of the results will be published later in the year.

Year 11 Prom and The Prom Breakfast

A message for parents/carers

Please click on the link below to see the letter that has been given to all year 11 students regarding the arrangements for this week’s Prom and The Prom Breakfast.

This year, we would like to welcome family members of our year 11 students to attend The Prom Breakfast and be part of this special event, as we say goodbye to a wonderful group of students. The event begins with the procession at 11.05am and this is followed by refreshments and then a leavers’ assembly in the Performance Area. The whole event will take just under 1 hour. We appreciate that you may not be able to stay for the whole hour, though I would urge you to try and be present for the procession, as this is quite magical.

If you would like to attend The Prom Breakfast, please contact Mrs Smith on 01226 721194. Please let her know if you also intend to stay for refreshments.

To make the event even more special, we would like the students to attend the event in their Prom attire from the previous evening and would be grateful if you could encourage them to do this.

Thank you for all of your support throughout the last 5 years. These children did not mature into such incredible young adults without all of your hard work and dedication.

Family members of year 11 students are invited to The Prom Breakfast at 11am on Friday June 23rd at Outwood Academy Carlton. Please see the website for details and contact Mrs Smith on 01226 721194 to confirm your attendance.
