Students and staff at Nova Hreod Academy are today celebrating their GCSE results which maintain the excellent progress they have made in recent years and increase their overall score to their highest ever. 


63% of students achieved five or more A*-C grades including a 4 or above in both English and maths, a further improvement on last year’s record success. There were particularly strong performances in the core subjects with an 80% pass rate in English and a 72% pass rate in maths.  Students also performed particularly well in chemistry, biology, physics, geography, history, religious education and art.
