Hewett Academy was busy celebrating their students GCSE success yesterday, they were exceptionally proud of these grades knowing the hurdles their students have overcome. 

 Executive Principal, Antony Little and Head of School, Lucy Austin said: “These results are a credit to our students, staff and the local community. They show what's possible even after the year just gone. Despite the uncertainty our students never stopped working. 


The Friends of Hewett went the extra mile to make sure every student had a laptop to work on well before this became a government initiative. Our staff came in during the holidays, gave extra online sessions and gave students every opportunity to show what they could do. 


Hewett keeps moving from strength to strength - I along with the rest of the staff and students are very proud of what our year 11 students have achieved for themselves and the example they have set for the students who follow in their footsteps. 


Congratulations and best of luck as every student moves onto further education, training or employment! Your resilience and adaptability are key strengths that will serve you well in the future, remember how far you've come and the hurdles you overcame to achieve these results.
