From the John Madejski Academy.

Students, parents and staff at the John Madejski Academy (JMA) in Whitley have been celebrating GCSE success this week.

“We would like to congratulate our year 11 students for their hard work and dedication over the past two years of their GCSEs,” said JMA principal Laura Ellener. “It is pleasing to see many students, of all abilities, meet and exceed national expectations. They are a real credit to themselves, the school and their families.”

“Particular congratulations go to students who achieved grades 9 and 8 which puts them amongst the brightest children in the country,” she said. “We look forward to welcoming them back to JMA sixth form in September.”
