Winterbourne International Academy is celebrating a fantastic set of GCSE results. The headline figure of 5 passes at A*-C, including Mathematics and English, has jumped up by a massive 9% to 73%. This is a record breaking increase and an astonishing success. In all, 22% of grades were at A* or A; over half of all grades were at A*-B. The new ‘Progress 8’ measure was positive, showing the strong progress made by Winterbourne students. 76% of students got at least a C grade in both Mathematics and English.
Special congratulations go to the many students who achieved at the very highest level. 11 students attained 5A*s or more. Top of the class was Alex Williams, who achieved 9A* and 3A grades, closely followed by Katie Baker who got 8A* and 4As. Ellie Boyle, Hannah Powell and James Labuschagne all attained 7A* and 4As and Isaac Chilcott got 6A* and 5A grades. Yasmin Dickinson, Callum Fitzgerald, Rafael Dave Obligar, Olivia Sussex and Rebekah Sussex all achieved 5A* grades. Scores of students, too numerous to mention, got 7 or more grades at A*/A.
Many subjects put in stellar performances. The English results were stunning, with English Language and English Literature both achieving A*-C pass rates of 86%. The English Language pass rate increased by 16% this year. Mathematics achieved 78% of grades at A*-C; Science at 79% has confirmed its sustained, high level of performance.

The Academy Principal, Mr Richard Haupt, said, “We are incredibly proud of our students; these results are testament to their hard work; their success is well-deserved. Congratulations must also go to our teachers; they have demonstrated unwavering commitment and dedication to getting the best results for their students. These results taken together with our record breaking A Level results, show we have put the past well and truly behind us and taken Winterbourne back to where it belongs among the highest achieving schools in South Gloucestershire and Bristol”.
