GCSE Results Day 2020
Thursday 20th August saw Year 11 students celebrate their GCSE results at Leeds East Academy.
The happiness and excitement felt by students at Leeds East Academy was palpable as Year 11 students received their GCSE Results.
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.
Ms Carrie, Principal, commented "We are absolutely delighted with this year's results which clearly demonstrate the hard work and determination of staff and students at LEA under significantly challenging circumstances. We are always incredibly proud of our students and their achievements and today marks a day of celebration for our young people who have secured the results they deserve.
"These results are testament to the dedication of our wonderful students and staff. These results have been achieved through hard work, commitment and integrity, despite the difficulty of the last six months. We would like to congratulate all our Year 11 students on their amazing achievements and thank all our staff for their incredible work over the course of this academic year."
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 -
- Ellie - "I was really nervous at first but once I saw my results I felt excited and really proud of myself. I am excited to tell my family. I now plan to go to study barbering at college."
- Manuel - "If I had to describe how I felt in three words I would say happy, proud and excellent. I am looking forward to studying physics, Spanish and sport at college."
- Michelle - "I feel amazing, I am so happy that I can now go on to study biology, psychology and health and social care at college."
- Janine - "I cannot believe it. I am so happy! I am so proud that I was able to achieve grade nines. My plan is to go to Elliot Hudson and study Spanish, law and history."
- Lizzie - "I am extremely proud of my results! I would like to thank Miss Milner who really helped me to achieve a Grade 7 in maths."
