Only 18 per cent of St Aldhelm’s Academy’s Year 11 pupils gained the national benchmark standard of at least five GCSEs at grades A* to C, including English and maths.
The results mean that around 80 students will be leaving the Poole school without the national benchmark. Four years ago, the school was ranked bottom in England with three per cent of pupils not gaining the benchmark standard.
Results published today from last summer’s OFSTED report show the academy is not making enough progress towards the removal of special measures.
This was the second inspection since the academy became subject to special measures in October 2014.
The report shows strong recommendations against the academy appointing newly qualified teachers.
Buzz has approached the school for comments.
