Examination Results 2018/19
NWLIS achieved a 100% pass rate for English, Art (level 6 and above), PE, and 75% pass rate for Maths GCSEs. Diaz, a Y9 student, achieved grade 9 in Art & Design and Michael and Myles (Y11) passed their Art, Craft and Design A-Level with high marks, achieving a B and C respectively.
Based on these positive results we will continue to offer A Levels, GCSEs, BTECs, Functional Skills and Entry Level Certificates.
Last year, Art Teacher Paul Morris, having achieved a 100% pass rate in the 2017/18 academic year, extended the creative arts curriculum to include Photography and Graphic Communication in line with our efforts to gain the Platinum Arts Mark. Having submitted our statement of commitment to the Arts Council, in November we will be putting on a formal exhibition of our students’ art in a glamorous venue (as yet to be finalised).
The end of the 2018/19 academic year saw five NWLIS students obtaining a GCSE in Art, Design & Photography. Paul said: “I’m very happy – the marks are spot on. All pupils tried their best, and I’m so proud of them. Their achievements are very impressive, especially given the fact two of the students were in years 8 and 9.”
Overall, to have such a great set of results is a remarkable achievement for our students who have, on average, lost many months of schooling from their education journey as well as numerous interruptions and new starts.
The school’s new Head Teacher Camilla Azis arrived in time to welcome the results and congratulate pupils on their hard work. She said: “These fantastic results show that with hardwork and dedication from students and staff anything is possible.”
