King Alfred’s Academy Open Days

‘Something for everyone’ is on offer from King Alfred’s Academy in Wantage as it embarks upon a fortnight of Open Events, commencing with a run of Open Mornings on its West Site on Monday 23 September, Tuesday 24 September and Wednesday 25 September, 9.30 – 11.30am. Year 6 primary pupils are invited to sample a couple of lessons whilst parents and guardians tour the site and speak to senior staff in attendance.

The Open Mornings will run again the following week on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday 1, 2 and 3 October on West Site.

To book a place for your son or daughter on one of these taster mornings, please contact the school via enquiries@kaacademy.org

The Academy’s Open Evening will take place on Thursday 26 September, again on West Site, 4.30 – 8.30pm.

On Saturday 5 October King Alfred’s will be repeating its hugely successful Saturday morning Open Event. This will take place on its Centre Site and promises a fun-filled morning of hands-on workshops for the family and tours round the academy’s fully revamped suite of purpose-built, state of the art classrooms and buildings. Come along between 10am and 1pm, grab some refreshments and take a look round. We look forward to meeting you!

King Alfred’s was delighted to celebrate a strong set of GCSE results achieved by this year’s Year 11 who demonstrated determination, resilience and dedication, leading to success across a broad curriculum for the 279 candidates who collected their results earlier this week after five years of hard work.

Close to two thirds of the cohort secured grades 9-4 in English and Mathematics, enabling them to progress to the next stage of their education which, for many, will be continuing at King Alfred’s in the academy’s outstanding Sixth Form.

Over half the cohort achieved a grade 5 in Mathematics, demonstrating a clear improvement on the 2018 results, with 69% achieving grades 9-4, whilst in English 76% of students achieved grades 9-4. These impressive results build on the progress made in 2018, which is reflected in the overall ‘progress measure’ for King Alfred’s, which has increased yet again this year. Subjects which performed particularly well include: BTEC Dance, BTEC Sport, GCSE PE, History, Media, Computer Science, Art and Food and Nutrition.

Headteacher, Rick Holroyd, commented: “We are very pleased, yet again, this year with a very impressive set of Level 2 results for the Class of 2019 at King Alfred’s. Overall, our students have matched the significant improvements made last year, and several outcomes such as the Basics measure – the proportion of students achieving good passes in English and Maths – and those achieving the EBacc, have improved. Consequently, the overall progress measure for the cohort has increased for the second year in succession.”

He summed up: “Most importantly, these results will allow our students to progress to the next phase of their education, and we are delighted that the majority of the cohort are able to join our outstanding Sixth Form at King Alfred’s, where, yet again, students excelled themselves with another set of brilliant A Level and BTEC results.
