Charter Academy students are celebrating a further improvement in GCSE achievement just a year since the school became an academy. Their achievements represent a 19% improvement in attainment over the previous year with 25% of pupils achieving at least 5 GCSEs including English and Mathematics.

Charter Academy principal, Dame Sharon Hollows said: “All our students worked hard and we are very proud of them. These results represent steady progress and mean we remain on course to achieve our medium term goal of 80% of pupils achieving five good GCSES including English and Mathematics by 2014. We saw good performances in Mathematics, where 45% of pupils gained A - C, and Science where 62% of pupils achieved A – C grades. I’m very grateful to the teaching and support staff at Charter Academy for their dedication to ensuring that our students receive the very best support we can offer.”
When the school became Charter Academy in September 2009, the first and only academy in Portsmouth, it introduced extra specialist staff and it lengthened its school day by an hour and a half on two days a week and offered students two further optional extended day sessions each week, offering pupils more opportunities to learn and to embed their learning. Students are enthusiastic about being part of the academy and the plans to open the sixth form.
Dame Sharon added: “These results are a credit to the hard work of the students, staff and the support of parents. We congratulate this year’s students and we look forward to continuing improvement.”
