GCSE Results Day 2020

Thursday 20th August saw Year 11 students celebrate their GCSE results at Leeds West Academy.

Leeds West Academy was a hive of positivity and joy as Year 11 students received their GCSE Results at Leeds West Academy.

It was wonderful to see students celebrate their successes alongside staff. Our Year 11 students have shown great resilience, determination and positivity during this difficult time and we are so proud of them.

Mr Whieldon, Acting Principal, commented "Following what has been an uncertain time for our Year 11 students we are incredibly proud of their achievements and successes in their qualifications this year. GCSE qualifications are achieved over many years of study and our Year 11 students have worked incredibly hard during their 5 years at Leeds West Academy towards achieving these grades. The results demonstrate the progress we continue to make as an academy, with significant areas of progress improving on last year's excellent results." 

During the day we were able to speak to every single student who walked through the door, but we have summarised the thoughts of a few students below - 

  • Emma and Isabell said they were very overwhelmed and happy with their results. Emma is excited to go on and study at Notre Dame and Isabell is going to study at Elliot Hudson. Well done girls!
  • Anisa, Izzie and Courtney - "We are so very proud of our grades and are so happy to see that our hard work has paid off. Thank you to everyone at Leeds West Academy, we are excited to now go on to study at college."
  • Isaac - "I am so happy to see that my hard work has paid off. I will be sad to say goodbye to Leeds West Academy but I will be going to Notre Dame to study Economics, Maths and Drama."
  • Alicia - "I feel so happy, I am really proud to have achieved these results. I will be going on to study Health and Social Care at Leeds City College, Quarry Hill campus."
  • Mohsin – “I am feeling really good about my results.  I was looking forward to receiving my Btec results too but will wait for those now.  I am feeling proud of myself.  I am now going to Elliott Hudson to study Business, Law and Politics."
  • Elizabeth “I feel really happy. With these results I have now got in to Notre Dame on my conditional offer to study maths, biology and art.”
  • Poppy “I am extremely happy! I am looking forward to going to Notre Dame to study law, history and politics but will keep in touch with LWA”
