Year 11 Case studies: Diminishing the gap 


Student A

Student A is an EAL pupil who arrived at Leeds East Academy with impressive KS2 levels making him a high ability student. This individual maintained an excellent attendance (99.1%) during his school years as well as being ever present at his Study Plus and Session 6 periods during KS4, which gave him the platform to develop his knowledge prior to his exams commencing. Student A achieved excellent results particularly excelling in Maths, Physics and Chemistry. In Maths he gained a Grade 8, surpassing his Grade 7 Predicted Target. In both Physics and Chemistry this pupil was predicted a B Grade but his hard work was paid off when gaining him two A grades in both of these subjects. Significantly reducing the class sizes for Year 11 lessons last year has had an extremely positive impact to this students end results especially in his core subjects as evidenced by the results above.


Student B

Student B is a middle ability SEN pupil who finished her time at Leeds East Academy with an attendance percentage of 97.7%. This student greatly benefitted from the smaller class sizes across all of her subjects in Year 11, which helped her to overcome the SEN barriers she faced. Across the board she made excellent progress highlighted by the fact she exceeded her Year 11 DC2 Grade in 8 subjects. This shows her level of excellence and preparation she applied to her Exams by attending every session 6 and her study plus sessions alike.


Student C

Student C is a low ability EAL student who initially struggled with life at Leeds East Academy. During his Key Stage 3 years this student had a history of poor behaviour and a lack of motivation towards his academic achievements. Lots of hard work by his teachers in lessons and in study plus/intervention sessions helped him to gain focus on the importance of hard work and resilience. Over time Student C changed his perception towards school and became a model student and a mentor to younger students who struggled to initially connect with school life. This pupil went on to achieve incredible amounts of progress culminating in him making progress against his Year 11 DC 2 data in 60% of his subjects and achieving the predictions in the other 40%. This resulted in him achieving two grades higher than the national average for someone of his ability level.
